Designing a Surreal Female Character in ZBrush

In this ZBrush tutorial we will learn how to create a surreal scary creature, starting from the basic block up and finishing with high-res details and textures.

Throughout these lessons we will learn the key features to design a memorable and terrifying female monster within ZBrush. We'll start with a concept painting that we'll use as source of inspiration, and we'll then move into ZBrush. We'll block out a basic mesh using the DynaMesh feature and then we'll start to add details and paint a very complex texture map. We'll also learn how sometimes design ideas can change even when the design it almost ready.
