Product Description


This work includes a book and a DVD. ZBrush is an unparalleled must-have tool in the world of digital sculpting. This book goes into great depth not only about how and why ZBrush works, but also how to master both ZBrush and digital sculpting. All aspects of the program are covered in detail and broken up into easy-to-understand sections. "Essential ZBrush" features many projects covering organic models and character pipelines, and non-organic hard surface walk-throughs. This book is suitable for all skill levels and covers something for every stage of a digital sculptor's development in ZBrush. Beginners learn the basics of ZBrush as well as digital sculpting and progress through both theory and projects to an advanced level.Upon completion of this book, readers will have the ability to produce detailed high quality digital sculpts. This book doesn't just cover how to do a project but also covers in depth why every single decision is taken and the benefit to the artist and the sculpture itself. This gives users a detailed overview of the design process for digital sculpts.

Detailed organic models such as humans, monsters, and stylistic busts, along with movie and game friendly pipelines for hard surface sculptures and cloth, are among the projects included. It includes several training videos in addition to the examples provided in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite right, this book is truly essential! 22 May 2009
I received this book yesterday and devoured it all in one sitting. (Which is quite a feat, considering that it is 750 pages long and stuffed with technical information.)
The author opens up a whole world of possibilities in the use of zbrush and even though a lot of it is incredibly intimidating for the novice 3D artist, it is written in an encouraging and inspirational way that makes you believe that anything is possible.
Absolutely brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book! 14 Dec 2009
Really helpful book on Zbrush (3.1 though, but still most of it applies to 3.5). Much much better than Introducing Zbrush. The author now uses Mudbox... very tempting to learn that too!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is essential for Zbrush users. 14 Oct 2008
This book is quite simply the best, and most in depth tutorial on the use of Zbrush available anywhere. No matter at what level you use the software, whether professionally or not you are certain to learn something new. A special mention must be made of the user friendly style, and layout of the book, as something as detailed as this could have easily been bogged down in jargon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 5 May 2013
Came across the author when I was starting going through 3D World. ZBrush Essentials. I loved his clear and easy to follow tutorial. Ordered the book..... excellent.

Although second hand, the book and did were in very good condition as described..... in fact I would have described it as new! Delivery was fast and secure. Price was outstanding. Fantastic service. A++
