New DVD Release! ZBrush 4 - Character Production
In this DVD, Michael Pavlovich starts from scratch with zspheres and creates an entire character with clothing and accessories in ZBrush 4. Michaels starts off by creating the base mesh and then sculpts out the entire body without cloths. He then goes through re-topologizing the body and the re-projecting the details. Next, Michael sculpts the fine details and then polypaints the entire body to a production finish. Once the body is done, he then creates all of the clothing and accessories, starting in Maya, then detailing and painting them in ZBrush. As a bonus, he also gives an overview of Fibers and how to use them to add hair to your character. Finally, he shows his render and compositing settings used in this DVD cover.
This DVD is an amazing resource for those looking to create their own characters in ZBrush using many of the latest tools and features.
