Creating a Full Character in Zbrush

If you’ve ever played a Souls game and been awestruck by the world-building and designs, you’ve come to the right place!

In this 18-hour course, the aim is to create a thematically similar character to those of the beloved Souls universe. Let’s take a ZBrush journey together and explore the many aspects of creating a full character from start to finish.

Everything you see, we’ll make! That’s right, nothing is skipped or time-lapsed. You’ll be guided through the entire process with commentary. When all is said and done, you will have the necessary tools to not only re-create, but also venture out on your own, and start creating bosses for yourself.

WHAT WE’LL COVER
Some of the topics we’ll be covering includes:

  • Anatomy
  • Design Philosophy
  • Weapon Creation
  • Posing
  • Texturing
  • ZModeler

I recommend that you have a decent working knowledge of ZBrush as we’ll be jumping straight in.

WHAT’S INSIDE
In addition to the narrated videos, you’ll find all relevant workfiles that you need in order to follow along. This includes:

  • 24 Narrated Videos
  • 2 Bonus Chapters
  • ZBrush Noise Presets
  • Custom Chain Brush
  • Fabric Texture
  • Complimentary PDF
  • Custom UI
  • Custom Hotkeys

Included are two bonus chapters where we focus on getting our model in and out of ZBrush as well as doing a complete lightning setup in Blender

  • Simply Amazing

    One of the best courses I’ve ever taken. Really good if you have solid sculpting skills and want to skyrocket to the next level.

  • Very good and informing tutorial

    Takes your character modeling to the new level. Not for the beginners.

  • "maybe he was a good guy"

    Excactly what I expected and also what I wanted.

    Definitely not Beginner friendly – but this isn’t even advertised. – Just for those who are wondering. – Bring in a bit of basic Zbrush understanding (and maybe a little bit of anatomy knowledge)

    Morten is a very sympatic instructor and it feels that he knows what he is doing.
    Very cool, and for me almost the best part in the course are the insights. – Why is he doing this, why is he doing that, how does he approach the next step. And then sometimes the quotes he gives us, things outside from the sculpt – This is more valuable than any tutorial which just says “Do this, get this and then do that”

    Also, not always going back and explain the buttons he presses is INCREDIBLE refreshing. I hate to watch an intermediate course where every single basic operation gets explained a million times. Saves valuable time and gets to the point more quickly. (When it gets a little complicated in the process he explains it, no worries there.)

    I watched it casually once now and just started with the first two chapters on Blocking the character. Having much fun so far, thanks for the course. I love stuff like that. 5/5

  • 5 stars for tutorial and 10 stars for Morten

    Here is the quote from this tutorial from Morten:
    “……With someone that you trust, that can tell you “this doesn’t work”,” i think you should do this” obviously that can be hard to find.sometimes if you are able to if you have someone even a community of people that can help you, i think that is incredibly valuable. I wound not be where i am today to sculpt things that i sculpt, if people hadn’t help me like that, i just think it’s basically impossible to do that on your own…… “————Morten.

    To be honest its my first time to buy the tutorial from FlippedNormals.com, I’ve check almost all the free videos out on the youtube to show technics and mindsets of art by these two cofounders, these contents are extremely helpful for people like me who teach myself and start from zero on my own. Happy to have you guys on this planet, keep up the good work ! You are the best!
