Zbrush 2020 – Sculpting for Beginners

The Discord – https://discord.gg/fD2ZHUD
In this Introduction to Sculpting in Zbrush 2020 video, I go over everything you need to know to get started using the software and sculpting your own creatures. I go through all the features (see list below!) and then have a timelapse at the end of me sculpting an organic creature – a goldfish – using Dynamesh, ZRemesher and all the other tools I’ve taught in this tutorial.

Download the fish zbrush scene and model here:

Features I cover in this video:
* Importing an object
* Subtools
* Subdividing
* Sculpting & Brushes
* Alphas
* Materials
* Masking
* Dynamesh
* Zremesher
* UV Master
* & a creature sculpting demo! [starts at 29:01]

    Hi everyone! Had a few requests for this after the last one about the UI. Hopefully it's a good starter video if you've never used the software before. Feel free to leave any questions below!

    I'm new to Zbrush so couldn't understand a lot but may I ask:
    Why we should Remesh?
    When we should Remesh?
    and Why it even matters to Remesh?

    For ZBrush are you using a mouse or drawing tablet?

    I still don't get what is Make PolyMesh 3D for, because I imported the model and sculpted and there is no message pop up to say that!!! but I already started sculpting. I did a research but still, can't understand it, I need like body words to understand.

    Thanks so much Michael! I keep re learning this program every couple years as my main gig is Production/concept design for film without much need for VFX tools, but I love Zbrush and continue to try and add it to the tool box. Your videos and explanations are fantastic and easy to follow. I am again, so new., that even basic functions such as the noise maker or deformers are over my head as of this writing, but I'll get to that soon enough. I am classically trained in painting and illustration so the basic sculpting is enough for now. I just subscribed to your channel. If you can point out other super entry level or useful tutorials I will study them as we all have a bit of extra time at the moment. Hope you are staying safe and thanks again for the top quality education.

    Thanks for this! I hadn't used Zbrush in a few years and it brought me back up to speed super quickly!

    Helpful, but i think you jumped over very crucial stuff. For you it might seems very obvious but i am very sure ppl don't get it.
    Like project from one subtool to the other and how to go from dyna to subd.
    I guess this could be very interesting for beginners.
    Especially when it comes to when do i go from dyna to subd.
    Just my thoughts here when we talk for sculpting for beginners. 🙂
