Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding how ZBrush uses color, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
ZBrush allows you to paint with color onto your models using mostly all the…same brushes and settings you use for sculpting;…the difference is that instead of altering the positions of polygons, you're…altering their color.…Let's open up the SuperAverageMan and expand the Polypaint subpalette.…In order to allow polypainting, we need to turn on Colorize.…With Colorize off, changing the color will change the entire model's color.…
With Colorize on, we can paint different colors on to different parts.…We also need to change the Brush mode from Sculpt to Paint.…You do this by turning off Zadd and turning on RGB.…The colors that you paint with are controlled here on the left side of the screen.…You can move the color pickers around to get any color you want.…The swatch on the right is the primary color, and the left one is secondary.…Click on the SwitchColor button to swap them.…You can also pick a color from anywhere on your model by clicking and dragging…on the swatch over to the model.…
You can see it's going to pick up white.…
