Project Setup & Sculpting Brushes - Part 1 Learn how to quickly setup a basic project for ZBrush sculpting, basic navigation skills, and how to use basic brushes. 52 pages long tutorial gives you an excellent starting point to get you into the world of Zbrushing. From basic Format: DOWNLOAD ONLY PDF Size: MB. I have created a detailed 25 page Step-By-Step PDF tutorial with lots of the basic process for modelling to texturing in Zbrush from scratch.
As you extrude the arm make sure to check all of the views to ensure it matches your reference images. Make another extrude to the top of the wrist to create the forearm. Rotate the bottom face of the arm 90 degrees to add the twist of the forearm created by the ulna and radius bones. Next using the Insert Edge Loop Tool, add a loop in the middle of the forearm.
Select the polygon at the end of the arm and extrude it out to mid-palm for the beginning of the hand. Tilting the face up can help in shaping the rest of the hand. Use the Insert Edge Loop Tool to a vertical edge loop through the new face. The new edge loop will travel around the length of the arm. Add a second horizontal edge loop to the face.
ZBrush 4R8 is out!
This edge loop will travel through the arm and down the side of the body. In this case that is good because it gives us some more detail to help round out the body. Remember to keep rounding out the form as you add detail.
Select and extrude the two faces on the thumb side to continue forming the hand. This is the metacarpal bone of the thumb and it forms the base. Select and extrude the two faces on the pinky side to continue forming the hand. This actually becomes the hypothenar muscles the fleshy pad on the pinky side of the hand.
Using component mode, adjust the newly added polygons to the proper shape of the hand. As always you want to continue shaping the polygons as added. Select the faces at the end of the hand and extrude them to the middle of the palm.
Continue shaping as you work. The hand has an indentation in the palm, so you should adjust the new faces to account for this. Select the end faces of the hand and extrude out to form the rest of the palm. Notice that the edges on the side have been pulled out to help round out the hand. Using component mode, pull the vertices that form the base of the pinky finger back. We need to add this split because the fingers have a natural gap in between them. This is one of the easier ways to create fingers.
To do this, simply select the edge in between the two triangles and delete it.

Create the finger separation for the remaining fingers. Now we can start extruding the fingers. The base of the finger forms the first, and largest, knuckle. Select the faces at the base of the index finger and extrude them out to the second knuckle.
The finger tapers as it nears the tip so be sure to resize the faces down as extrude. With the faces still selected, extrude out to the third knuckle.
Extrude the faces again out to the tip of the finger. Using component mode, round out the form of the hand and index finger. Select the faces that make up the base of the thumb. The outer face will form the first knuckle.
The inside face extends onto the palm and forms the bulging muscles of the thumb. Extrude the faces down to the second knuckle and straighten the vertices.
With the faces still selected, extrude the faces again down to the tip of the thumb. Pull down the indicated vertices and edge to help form the shape of the thumb.
The vertices pulled down on the outside help define the first knuckle. The edge pulled down on the inside forms the large muscle at the base of the thumb that extends onto the palm. The problem was that using them was a cumbersome process and it required some tweaking to get exactly what you wanted.
With ZBrush 4R8, we now have real-time Booleans. Personally, I consider this the most powerful feature of this upgrade. In the example below, I added a new subtool the cube and set it to subtract.
Any curve will act as a subtracting mesh over the sphere: Obviously not just curved brushes but Insert brushes as well. Is so easy and FAST! Working with booleans is really addictive, just watching the boolean effect happening in real time is quite mesmerising. This feature allows you to have multiple groups of booleans within the same tool so you can have a hierarchy.
Basically, every time you set a subtool as the start of a group, all the boolean operations below it will affect only that group and not the one above it. Vector displacement maps is also not a new concept, and the ability to export these map has been in ZBrush for a while.
VDMs can quickly be generated from a plane, and there is a project file that ships with ZBrush that is all set up for this. You might remember back in the day when normal maps were introduced, they pretty much deprecated the use of bump maps.
VDMs is like alphas on steroids! 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.
Last edited by furrykef; at Thanks for the tip, I don't know why I included this originally - I will add your useful Ires information into the tutorial now.
Hope you dont mind.
I tried to download this but it says I dont have permission. ANy ideas?
Has it been removed?Next we need to start pulling out the arms.

Creating tiling meshes in ZBrush Not just for video game design, creating tiling mesh is a useful skill Tiling meshes are helpful for creating video game environments. For instance, if you are currently inflating your model, this hotkey combo will instead deflate. Cheers Mike R. This can really help organize your scenes.
