Zbrush 2021 Character Likeness Sculpting Tutorial
If this is the case, then I welcome you to Nexttut Education’s “Zbrush 2021 Character Likeness Sculpting” course. My name is Victor Yamakado, I’m a 3d character artist with 10 years of experience in 3d art. I’ve been working for many years with Character Sculpting for collectibles and character modeling for production.
In this course, I want to share with you all the way I do for creating a complete and realistic portrait of Anthony Hopkins and make you fully introduced to this amazing journey of studying and recreating famous portraits. This surely is the most challenging skill that a 3d character modeler can have, once we need to be always concerned about developing our perception and sculpting skills.
By sharing my process, I really want to make you open your eyes and take a whole new look at how do you perceive your references and how could you translate them in the sculpture process.
We will develop a stronger perception, by using many techniques for comparing distances, comparing lot-specific facial shapes, and also understanding some of the most important features of the anatomical structures of the human face.
Then we’re gonna sculpt firstly the Primary forms, capturing the overall likeness on volumes and silhouettes.
After we break the symmetries and we start the fun! We’re gonna try to match even more the overall volume, but now we start to sculpt realistic skin wrinkles and folds on the face.
And finally, we’ll cover my whole process of doing the surface details like skin pores or the Tertiary forms, as they are usually called. And for this, we will focus on using just the default alphas we have on Zbrush, this way everyone will be able to make an amazing realistic skin detail, blending and fully understanding how to apply each one of them.
This course is focused on Intermediate Zbrush users who really want to take their sculpting and perceptions skills to a next level.
If you want to join me in this journey, so prepare your coffee, and let’s start to sculpt together!
