In this ZBrush tutorial, we will learn how to use ZBrush Mannequins to quickly concept a character.

Throughout this tutorial we will be using the Mannequins that come inside of ZBrush to create a pose and find our character from that gesture. We will be sculpting the entire model without symmetry and have a focus on the anatomy of the human body. By the end of this tutorial, you should be able to add another rapid sculpting technique to your arsenal.
