Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Using transparency with reference photos, part of Sculpting Portraits in ZBrush.
- Now that we have the model well underway, it's…a good idea to revisit the reference and see…if there's anything out of place.…We already know that the orthographic views…line up pretty well.…You can see here the front and side views are…pretty well lined up.…But what about the perspective views.…In this video, I'll show you how to work on a…transparent model in prospective, with a photo…in the background.…Let's go to our neutral reference images.…And open up one of these three-quarter views.…So open it up in any image editor or Photoshop,…and let's get it centered in the screen.…
Ok now let's go back to ZBrush.…There's a slider up at the top called See-Through.…Let's go ahead and crank that up.…This basically makes the entire ZBrush interface…semi-transparent.…So somewhere half-way between fully opaque and…fully-transparent is good, and now we can just…pan and move and rotate our model, and see how…well this lines up.…Now this is never going to be absolutely…perfect, because it's impossible to know the…exact angle from which the photo was taken.…
