The Gnomon Workshop has released Introduction to ZBrush 4R7: a definitive new guide to Pixologic’s digital sculpting sofware, recorded by Weta artist and ZBrush expert Madeleine Scott-Spencer.

The course, which comprises over 12 hours of training, is described as “the most comprehensive set of instructional videos ever created for ZBrush users … from absolute basics to advanced sculpting”.

A complete guide to ZBrush 4R7’s toolsets

The training also covers the use of the Keyshot renderer, which now comes in an edition tailored for ZBrush.
