ZBrush Hard Surface Techniques

In this DVD, Instructor Mike Jensen goes into depth on many hard surface techniques in ZBrush. Mike starts off by explaining in detail many techniques like customizing the ui, creating meshes, brushes, and stamps. Next he then takes you through the process of creating an entire mechanical character and covers everything from starting with a concept mesh to creating a clean base mesh and detailing. Mike then takes the final model into 3ds Max and uses V-Ray to create materials and render out layer passes. Last he takes the renders into Photoshop to composite them together.

This DVD is perfect for those who want to learn how to create hard surface characters inside ZBrush.

Too bad author uses MAX for rendering. Wish rendering part was for MAYA instead.
