  • Details

    In this ZBrush 15 video tutorial set John Haverkamp presents a ZBrush "clinic", that has a whole set of common Q&A demonstrating how to overcome typical challenges that new ZBrush users come up against.

    These tutorials spanning 10+ hours also focus on an armoured helmet modeling project. Both the clinic and project take a look at the new ZBrush core mini, ZBrush Core, and ZBrush classic.

    Questions in the ZBrush clinic include:

    • What are the differences between Zbrush CoreMini, Zbrush Core, and the full version of zbrush? Which do I really need?
    • What are the most common brushes to get going with sculpting?
    • When to use Dynamesh and Zremesher?
    • Should I learn Zmodeler? What are the limitations and strengths?
    • What are the differences in approach between hard surface and organic modeling tools in Zbrush?What are masks and how to use extractions to make clothing and armor
    • What are subtools and how to manage them
    • What are live booleans? and how to put them to work
    • How to project previously sculpted details onto a remeshed or retopoed model?

    The armoured helmet sculpting project considers several designs and approaches, with these learning points in mind:

    • Concept sculpting with basic Zbrush brushes.
    • Design considerations around the dimensions of a 3D head.
    • Extracting clean armour plates from a rough concept mesh.
    • How to using Zbrush booleans to hollow out a helmet design to fit a DAZ Studio head perfectly.
    • Clean hard surface topology generation.
    • If we have time, we’ll go over some UV mapping for the sculpted articles.

    Skills Required

    • Basic familiarity of ZBrush
    • For ZBrush beginners/intermediate

    About John Haverkamp

    John Haverkamp was born in Ohio and then moved to the pristine Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia at a young age. There he spent a semi-isolated childhood re-enacting the Lord of the Rings and being corrupted by Dungeons and Dragons. Always with the fondness for the fantastical and medieval, Art school drove him deeper into Luddite territory by granting him the skills of a traditional metal-smith. This meant post-college jobs making copper fountains, welding and steel fabricating, casting and finishing bronze sculptures, and working for an architectural blacksmith throughout his twenties.

    Digitally, John got sucked into cyberspace and the arcane mysteries of 3D studio max. The perfect software match for John was Zbrush who has been learning and teaching ZBrush for over a decade. John endeavours to improve his craft as a digital-sculptor and visualizer through personal work, illustration and indie game projects.
