ZBrush has a wide range of tools to help with this, with various posing processes to choose from. Fabulous tutorial - very well written! Unless you're working on something inorganic, you're very unlikely to create that many children of a ZSphere! I still feel wobbly at the knees but my confidence is growing using zbrush. I know, this is somewhat nitpicky, but I think it's important that it be understood what the ires slider actually does, instead of perpetuating a "rule of thumb" of setting it to 30 that doesn't really make sense.

I will definitely keep this pdf handy for my next project. BTW, I had no idea about the Perspective option. So the mac version has it in 2.
Ah well, I guess I'll wait for the next update. Thanks, I hope it was helpful At the moment it seems like the only way round the perspective issue on a PC is to export to a separate 3d app for rendering So I'm writing a quick 'n' easy step-by-step PDF for getting the sculpted mesh into 3dsmax with a displacement and bump map and texture map.
Website and Portfolio: I hear ya. This is the way Ive been doing it for quite sometime I use lightwave. I have yet to really make a complete render out of any 3D app and I mainly use really quick renders for lighting references when working on 2D art.
The interest in the zbrush perspective issue started after reading the Mytholon thread. It looks like he has some of his objects layed out with extreme perspective and I was trying to figure how that was done.
I am assuming he's using perspective mode? Excellent tutorial, very well presented and put together, thanks.
Very nicely done.
I would expect Pixologic will be asking to incorporate this into the next manual and adding it to the Classroom page. I think that Mytholon is using perspective on the 3d objects as he draws them onto the canvas, then 'locking them into place' in 2.
Thanks for your compliments , if Pixologic did want to incorporate it into some of the standard material I would be chuffed!
Wow thanks this is just the sort of thing that is of invaluable use to an old kodger and new Zbrusher like me I've been experimenting with zspheres but have had trouble knowing in what order to do things so end up with a blob having things stuck out all over the place Not to knock the tutorial, but I'm puzzled why I always see people recommending setting the ires to about 30 or so.
What that number means is "if a zsphere has more than 30 children, increase the resolution". Unless you're working on something inorganic, you're very unlikely to create that many children of a ZSphere!
May as well set it to if you don't want to bother with the feature. I know, this is somewhat nitpicky, but I think it's important that it be understood what the ires slider actually does, instead of perpetuating a "rule of thumb" of setting it to 30 that doesn't really make sense.

Weta Workshop veteran Madeleine Scott-Spencer sits down with 3D World magazine to share some of her insider techniques for sculpting better-looking models in less time with ZBrush. The Gnomon Workshop offers a wide range of ZBrush tutorials, but you do need to pay a subscription fee to access them.
If you're not sure, sign up for a three-day free trial, which should be enough time to try a few of them out. This training website doesn't just cover ZBrush: In this workshop for ImagineFX , Adam Dewhirst walks through how to combine Zbrush and Photoshop to turn a loose concept into a fully realised idea, playing to both programs' strengths.
Find the video above and click here to discover how to follow the process.
In this tutorial, lead character artist Titouan Olive shows you how to use ZBrush to apply Hollywood model-making techniques without a Hollywood budget. There's a clear walkthrough to follow, plus handy videos to illustrate trickier points. Ensuring hair looks as realistic as possible is a difficult task for any ZBrush user. This short video tutorial sums up how you can create texture to guarantee the best outcome.
Creating realistic look cloth folds is no easy task in 3D. In this two-hour video tutorial, 3D artist David Richardson explains the process behind it. In this popular tutorial, 3D artist Liam Shaw walks through the process of creating digital characters from scratch in ZBrush. It's aimed at those still getting to grips with the software.
He reveals how to plan the composition ahead of beginning the modelling, and how rendering proved the most challenging aspect. This super-quick and simple tutorial shows you how to model humanoid ears. You should already know the very basics of ZBrush to do this tutorial.
This tutorial is ideal for those who want to look beyond the easy option of downloading free 3D models and learn how to sculpt realistic anatomy using ZBrush. You'll already be aware that we're pretty obsessed with H. Giger's alien, thanks to our previous sci-fi design features. Here, you'll discover how to reincarnate the alien character using various ZBrush tools such as the ZSketch feature. Darrell Abney demonstrates how he sculpted the face of his creature, Worgrock, to help you learn how to create a 3D alien pirate character.
Abney chose ZBrush as his main weapon of choice due to its "many sculpting tools, and generally being fun to sculpt with", but he also uses Maya, Substance Painter and V-Ray in this tips feature.
