Beginners Sculpting Essentials In Zbrush 4R6

Learn essential Zbrush sculpting techniques with 3D character artist Michael Knowland. With nearly 14 hours of video, we cover crucial features, such as brushes, lighting and materials in order to make a highly detailed Horse sculpt that is built around real-world superficial anatomy and proportions. This video is designed for total beginners who have no prior knowledge of Zbrush, and Michael will reveal each feature utilized in the creation process, some of which are unique to the latest version of Zbrush 4R6.  

Michael graduated from Staffordshire University in 2009, and has worked at Naughty Dog and Frontier Developments, on projects such as The Last of Us, Uncharted 4 and Kinectimals.  He is currently a senior character artist at Avalanche Studios in New York. 

The video resolution is 1280x720.
