Creature Concepting

In this Creature Concepting in ZBrush tutorial we will explore a lot of different concepts when it comes to creating creatures. We will take you through some very basics techniques in ZBrush just to get you started, as well as talk about advanced sculpting concepts to really help you enhance your design.
We’ll cover both 2D and 3D concepts, talking about design and delving into why figuring out your creature is just as important as actually producing it.

Design Principles

We’ll be discussing different design principles and how we go about exploring our design and making it the best it can be. Everything we talk about is directly applicable to your own work and is in no way limited to what we are showing.

Start to Finish

We’ll take you through the entire process of Creature Concepting in ZBrush, from the basics in ZBrush to rendering in MODO and finally finishing off the piece in Photoshop.
