About this book

If you have trouble approaching Character Sculpting in ZBrush, don’t worry. Sculpt like a professional with ZBrush covers everything you need to know. This book will teach you how to pose sculpted models with ease using basic yet efficient expert techniques.

We'll sculpt a 'Necro Soldier,' a super soldier made from a mix of human and Necorid technology, in this book. To begin, we'll import a Male human base mesh and generate accessories for our Character Model with IMM Brushes. After that, we'll look at how to use move and move infinite brushes to alter our model's proportions from various perspectives. You'll learn how to lay the foundation of your details with Dynamesh and other brushes, as well as segment and arrange portions of your model to produce a compelling posture from various camera angles. Following that, we'll sculpt our character's head, torso, arms, legs, cloak, and long blade using Live booleans, Panel loops, Dynamesh, Standard brush, cloth, and scribe brushes. Finally, we'll go over how to prepare and export the model for rendering in Keyshot or Blender and finish up our project by editing our renders in Photoshop. By the end of this book, you'll confidently be able to use the most relevant ZBrush tools and features for sculpting your character in half the time by knowing where to focus your attention.
