ZBrush 3.5 Character Production - High Res Sculpting, Polypainting, ZPlugins, and more

In this DVD Michael Pavlovich starts off by taking up where the first DVD left off and covers the new features in ZBrush 3.5 R3. After the new features are covered he takes everything that you have learned up to this point and puts it into practice by creating an entire highres character right inside Zbrush. Many techniques are used during this character creation process that would benefit almost anyone.

After the character is made he goes through many of the useful ZPlugins like Zapplink, Subtool Master and even goes through creating a turntable video of your character. At the very end there is a bonus video that takes you through rendering out passes from ZBrush and compositing them inside Photoshop.

Hi, first I was introduced to your dvd and man how useful and great it is.
At one point ( polypainting the face I think ) you talked about someone's book about color aeras on the human face. I didn't quite get it ( danzig miller ? glen danzig ?????? ). I googled around and found a LOT of useless info on glenn danzig but no book from danzig miller. Could you get some info ? THX and bravo for your dvds ( honestly the best I'v seen ( with realistic portrait with SSS ). Bye !

Hey, i have a question. Does this dvd cover the whole process of sculpting the model, or just bits showing the techniques? Laughing out loud

I think thats a new feature in ZBrush 4. Zbrush 3.5 doesnt have paint layers.

Wow thanks for the quick reply! Gimp is a free image manipulation program for those who can't afford Photoshop. I hope to be getting this DVD along with two others. I'm a beginner in zbrush, so hopefully I can learn a lot from this DVD. I was also thinking about buying the comprehensive introduction to zbrush DVD, but hopefully this DVD also comes with an introduction.


August 20, 2010 - 12:23pm

Both, although we never simply speed up a video but carefully speed up sections and slow them down. Ive never used gimp so Im not sure, but the photoshop portion in this video is small.

Is this DVD an actual tutorial or a speed sculpt deal? Also I have gimp instead of photoshop. Will I still be able to follow the video?

Even ZB4 has been released this DVD is still totally relevant and of the techniques shown are still compatible with ZB4.
Im sure you wont be disappointed Smiling

Hi Anon,

Unfortunately UV Master was made available after this DVD was released so it couldn't be included but its a really simple plugin (1 or 2 clicks for an unwrap) so you should pick it up really fast. Smiling

Hope that helps Smiling


June 12, 2010 - 4:22pm

Does this DVD also go through the new UV master plug in? If not it does not really matter, but it would be cool. Currently saving up for this tutorials and a few others. Smiling

I have a silly question.
Does anybody know what type of mouse did Michael use in these dvds?
Any answer would be appreciated.


April 22, 2010 - 9:31am

Head and shoulders above other zbrush tutorials. Well done.


March 29, 2010 - 8:36am

Will there be another DVD coming in this series?
