In this tutorial we will use a variety of techniques to paint textures for our female hero model in ZBrush. In this series of lessons we'll use ZBrush's powerful materials and painting tools to add color and texture to our female hero model. We'll start by adding simple materials to some of the clothing and accessories and look at how we can customize those materials. We'll talk about the importance of adding color variation in getting realistic results as we paint the different articles of clothing for our character. We'll also learn to isolate different polygroups for painting and look at adding dirt and grime. We'll paint and sculpt together to add detail to the model and talk about using UV layouts and texture files to help us finish the clothing. We'll use Spotlight to paint through photographs in order to texture the face, arms, and abdomen. We'll go step by step through the process of texturing our female character so that by the end of this tutorial, you'll have a painted model, but you'll also have the knowledge you need to begin texturing your own ZBrush creations.
