Book Description

12 Jan 2010
Taking into account that many of today′s digital artists –– particularly 3D character animators –– lack foundational artistic instruction, this book teaches anatomy in a coherent and succinct style. A clear writing style explains how to sculpt an accurate human figure, starting with the skeleton and working out to muscle, fat, and skin. Insightful explanations enable you to quickly and easily create and design characters that can be used in film, game, or print, and allows you to gain a strong understanding of the foundational artistic concepts. Note: CD–ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 10 April 2010
Not a word about women characters, or about fats volume and position, it's only the process for the big low-fat overly testosteroned dude on the cover.
The 3.5 features, like ZSpheres 2 are not showed.
No technical precisions, it's not about where and when to click, the basics must be already known.

But, I give it a 5/5, because it's my new anatomy and sculpt bible, very complete about proportions, muscles bones and attachment, and with good chapters about SSS and topology.
And even if your english is as bad as mine, it's very clear and pretty well illustrated.

This is a brilliant book which really shows you how to get the best out of Zbrush whilst modeling humanoids. I would not however recommend it for an absolute beginner. The added DVD really helps crystallise concepts raised in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 19 Mar 2010
This is a superb book on human antomy, and Zbrush sculpting. Unlike other books this book teaches you about the human form and anatomy when sculpting, and giving you a solid basis in Zbrush. Other books will tell you to do this and do that, without telling you why the human body should be that way, but this book tells you everythign you need to know, from making a base mesh in Maya to adavanced scultping in Zbrush. This is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for the DVD alone 12 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Buy this if you want to improve your skills using Zbrush. Instruction moves at quite a pace so if you are new to ZB you should read this guys other book. The DVD is packed with tutorial videos that more than flesh out the book. Several hours of tuition at this price - a no brainer - buy it!
