Justin Goby Fields
In this ZBrush tutorial we are going to go through the steps of creating a sci-fi robot warrior for concept design.

We will cover many techniques for hard surface modeling in ZBrush, sculpting mechanical details, and painting lights and other effects on the model in Photoshop. Finally, we will composite the model into a scene realistically, while adding some final post production effects.
