The Gnomon Workshop ships Introduction to ZBrush 4R8

Saturday, October 7th, 2017 | Posted by Jim Thacker

The Gnomon Workshop has released Introduction to ZBrush 4R8, a comprehensive guide to Pixologic’s industry-standard digital sculpting software, recorded by Double Negative artist Madeleine Scott-Spencer.

A complete professional guide to sculpting in ZBrush
Gnomon describes Introduction to ZBrush 4R8 as “the most comprehensive set of instructional videos ever created for ZBrush users” – with some justification: the tutorial runs to well over 16 hours of footage.

As well as providing a detailed explanation of every tool in ZBrush, it sets out key ZBrush workflows, from the absolute basics to advanced sculpting and detailing techniques.

The training starts with a brief overview of the UI aimed at new users, and quickstart tutorials on sculpting, plus a more in-depth lesson on painting creature skins using Polypaint.

It then moves onto the individual feature sets, including all of the new features and plugins for ZBrush 4R8, including Live Booleans, VDM brushes and 3D text.

Scott-Spencer also demonstrates how to use ZBrush in conjunction with other key CG applications, including Photoshop and KeyShot.

About the artist

She has worked for facilities including Gentle Giant Studios, Weta Workshop and Weta Digital, on movies including The Hobbit trilogy, Wonder Woman and Valerian. She is currently a 3D artist at Double Negative.

Pricing and availability
Introduction to ZBrush 4R8 is available via an online subscription to The Gnomon Workshop, giving you access to over 300 detailed tutorials. Subscriptions cost $49/month or $499/year, and there is a free trial.
