Designing a Scary Female Monster in ZBrush

In this ZBrush tutorial we will learn how to create a scary creature with ZBrush - starting from the basic blocked-in meshes and finishing with high-res details and textures.

Throughout these lessons we will learn the key features to design a memorable and terrifying female monster within ZBrush. We'll start by using a concept painting that we'll use as source of inspiration and then move to ZBrush. In ZBrush we'll block out a basic mesh using the DynaMesh feature.

Eventually, we'll start to add details and paint a very complex texture map. We'll also learn how sometimes design ideas can change even when the design is almost ready. Get ready for some scary stuff!
