In this ZBrush tutorial, you will learn about concepting a demon character using ZBrush and Photoshop.

Throughout the training you'll also learn methods and techniques for creating ZSpheres, DynaMesh, and polypaint - just to name a few.

By the end of the training you'll have a deeper insight into how to use these tools and you'll be able to adapt them as your own to create a portfolio ready piece to show prospective clients and studios.
