Throughout this tutorial we'll cover all the different aspects of creating a female assassin character in ZBrush.

This training is intended for any ZBrush user, even a total beginner, and covers everything from setting up the project, to understanding and building the human female anatomy, to using many tools inside ZBrush 4R6 to create all the elements of the character's costume. This tutorial is a great overview that will introduce new users to a ton of features, and show intermediate to advanced users a few new tricks.

By the end of this training you will have created a professional level Female Assassin character.
