Getting Started in ZBrush is a gentle introduction to ZBrush, today’s premier digital sculpting program. Beginning with the fundamentals of digital sculpting as well as a thorough introduction to the user interface, Getting Started in ZBrush will have you creating a variety of professional-level 3D models in no-time. More than just another button-pushing manual, this comprehensive guide is packed with start-to-finish projects that ease you into the workflow of the program, while at the same time providing tips and tricks that will allow you to achieve certain tasks much more quickly. After progressing through the tutorials, you will be shown how to customize brushes, materials, scripts, and the interface so that you can utilize these tools to their full advantage.

Special consideration is given to ZBrush’s integration plug-ins with Maya and 3ds Max, allowing you to properly import and export your models in all programs. Texturing, painting, mapping, decimation, baking, and topology are also fully covered so your Zbrush creations can come to life without sacrificing that high-resolution look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for starters. 18 July 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book give very clear directions on how to find your way around on ZBrush if it's the first time you have used the program.
The dragon project is easy to follow and a great topic to start with. The author gives directions on how to control the program not how to draw, so you need some skill...the program or book will not make you an artist.
The author has also very cleverly addressed lots of the possibilities in the program but using them to make various parts of the project to let you see how it all works and where and how you can use it.
You need to stay alert however, on several occasions I found myself with little problems where a direction had been missed or sketchily described...not because it wasn't needed but because a similar action had been used earlier in the book. This means that you have to pay attention as you working to remember what you have learnt on the way...only a bonus I found.
I have not started the hard surface section as yet but trust that that will be as good as the start of the book.
My only advice to users is to read through a few pages first before picking up you pen or mouse...some directions are spread out and involved so it helps to read the whole action first to have a better idea of what you are about to do.
Further although most will have it already, a version of Photoshop or GIMP already installed is a benefit.

I had absolutely no idea how to use any part of ZBrush when I purchased the program–and it's a bewildering interface when you've never used it before. After following the steps in this book I am now independently managing the program with increasing confidence. I guess that says it all. Getting Started in ZBrush was definitely worth the purchase price for me.
