Digital Tutors – Sculpting Hard Surfaces in ZBrush 3.5 R3
English | Size: 1.18 GB
Category: Tutorial

In this series of lessons we’ll learn how to use some of the hard-surface sculpting tools in Zbrush. Zbrush has always been a great application for sculpting incredibly detailed organic shapes. But did you know that Zbrush has a number of useful tools that will help you to sculpt more hard surface shapes as well? In this course, we’ll talk about the Polish brushes, which will allow us to combine smooth curves and sharp edges in a single stroke. The strokes themselves have been enhanced with Backtrack, allowing us to get smoother, straighter lines when sculpting. We’ll also cover the Re-mesh functionality which will allow us to combine multiple shapes in Boolean-type operations. We can also take advantage of the Zbrush primitives to give us a great starting point for some of our hard surface shapes. [Read more…]

Create a Cartoon Baby Animal in 3D

In this class we will go from beginning to end as I walk you through how to create a 2D illustrated concept and transform that into a fully 3D sculpted character.

We’ll be using simple pencil and paper for our illustrations at first and later take them into photoshop to polish them off. After that we will move onto sculpting inside of Zbrush. Lastly, we will render them in both Zbrush and Keyshot.

I’m really excited to teach this class and I hope everyone enjoys this process! [Read more…]

Not all CAD packages excel at the same tasks. But moving models between them can be difficult. In this course, you can learn a workflow for moving models between ZBrush and CAD packages that use SubD (subdivision surfaces), such as Rhino. Instructor Jean Gorospe shows how to build incredible designs that take advantage of both their strengths-and prepare for an exciting 3D printing process known as stereolithography (SLA). Follow along and discover how to build a modern task chair in Rhino, transfer the model to ZBrush for high-res detailing, send the mesh back to Rhino to convert it to NURBs, and finalize the design for printing. Jean even shows you what the results look like coming straight off an SLA printer, and after they’ve been washed and cured. [Read more…]
