Thanks guys! @zephrusprime, no I didnt noticed a difference from that side Last stuff from the Zbrush Beta, I wanted to loosen up with Sculptris so I did some custom characters and the Sphere challenge that Paul asked us :P. Funny enough I noticed every time I am sculpting or drawing without a concept or direction I tent to make stylized animals. Is funny as I never make them....maybe is my style, who know! :P

So here is the 2nd batch from the Zbrush 2018 beta When we were introduced to sculptris and all the new brushes features I decided to implement all of it into a production character. For a while I always wanted to sculpt a dragon, so I picked up this great concept by Dongjun Lu( https://www.artstation.com/artwork/kzaKn) All the blockout was done using scluptris, this help a lot to define areas like ears and eyes, comparing with dynamesh I was very limited so defo the guys from Pixologic did a excellent job on it!! For the scales I decided to implement the new animal displacement maps from Texturing XYZ here: https://texturing.xyz/collections/animals XYZ displacement maps are incredible helpful as I can create the scales in almost no time. I hope you guys enjoy it as much I did. Still need to finish his accessories and textures, so more to come!

Cavity Mask + Inflate brush Would like to share one new layer I implemented on this character meanwhile sculpting and made a big difference in terms of breaking speculars and adding more variation. The idea is to have enough variation on the skin using the displacement maps from texturing XYZ. Unfortunately is not enough, that is why is needed some extra love on the skin, giving several passes. The new pass I implemented was "inflate". The idea is to bump certain areas where the skin is more dramatic, like cheeks and jowls. Eventually on the final render this extra bump helps a lot to break the speculars and give more realism. 1. Mask by Cavity 2. Blur Mask 3. Sharp Mask. I found out an extra sharp can help in certain occasions 4. With a very low Zintensity get the inflate brush and go around those areas where is needed.

VrayDisplacementMOD + Arnold Shader I am getting a lot of request about the skin shader from Landa. You are going to find out how simplistic it was indeed 1. Get the Arnold shader for Vray here: https://github.com/ChaosGroup/vray_al_surface/releases Is still under development but on the last alpha version is already working nicely 2. The most interesting is the fact that Arnold shader behaves pretty much right from the beginning, in fact I ended up working with standard parameters from the begining 3. Plug your difuse, specular and glossiness maps on the slots 4. I personally played with both VrayDisplacmentMOD and the Arnold displacement. From this point, I got very bad results on the arnold displacment all the time, so using VrayMod is the best way to go! ENJOY IT!!!

How to retain division levels after panel loops
HOW TO RETAIN DIVISION LEVELS AFTER PANEL LOOPS Hi guys, would like to share with you one trick I found out during the process of my last character. More specifically about level divisions in a garment exported from Marvelous Designer.All of us knows the basic pipeline about using Zremesher and re-project the details into the new mesh. But in some cases you are requested to have thickness on the cloth. Well, to be able to do this you can use Panel Loops but immediately you will loose all your subdivision levels. I asked myself how to reconstruct the previous subdivision levels after the panel loop process. The answer is mathematics LOL. All is a simple to multiply your previous division levels number by 4, and apply the resulting number as the Loops on the Panel Loop operation. i.e: I have a cloth that I subdivided 3 times in order to project all the details: I delete the division history in order to apply Panel Loops, but set "12" as the loops should be generated during the process (3 x 4= 12) After that just hit "Reconstruct Subdiv" button, and you will be able to get down on the division level to the fist one. Now on division level 1 is easy to pose it, create UVs, etc.. Have fun

Some people were asking about the displacement map workflow. Load them as Alpha > Invert in Vertical as Zbrush flip them during export Load the alpha in the displacement Adjust the value, most of the time low values around 0,3 do the job Create a layer and bake the information from each Channel into separated layers (Primary, Secondary, Tertiary) Adjust each layer until it looks right Create any new layer for imperfections, wrinkles and extra porosity details Once you are finish, in order to bake the displacement map I use Multi map exporter inside of Zbrush. Make sure you turn OFF EXR and the scale is set to 1. With the displacement map baked, in 3DsMax I add a VrayDisplacementMod on the lv1 OBJ imported from Zbrush. An amount of 1cm should do the job, though depending on the case I like playing with the SHIFT value too.

I want to share my Zbrush pipeline to create busts. I call it the "The method of the Spheres" 1.Start with a Sphere and find the head volume and shape 2. With other spheres append Nosea, Ears and Eyeballs Pretty much already from this stage you should be able to see the character 3. Dyamesh it and remove gaps. Fix the volume and start with the anatomy work. 4. After it is where I spend most of the time. Likeness is very tricky and sometimes it can take some time to get it right. 5. For the high frequency details I used the displacement maps from TexturingXYZ. Very handy for the face 6. Remain body details are done with standard alphas I always make sure to work in layers so later on I can intensify any of the details in order to get a better displacement map. Check out the image below:

@YKatz, thanks mate! Very nice words BODY WORKFLOW I would like to share with you the workflow I used in order to sculpt the body. It was a while ago since I sculpted my last female body so I tried 2 different approaches and eventually just liked one of them. The 1st apprach was using the same methodology I use for heads, working with primitives. After a while sculpting, I realized it was not the best approach....as it was incredible slow. My 2nd approach was working with Zbrush Mannequins. It was more out of curiosity but the fact that you can pose the mannequins and already have some nice body proportions, it make the workflow waaay faster. Working along with the clay and clay buildup brush, I could get the body I wanted for Polaris. In this case I was basing my references in a fitness female bodies. Once the body is done, is a matter of extracting the clothes by masking out the parts. Once I was happy with the design, was time to pose her For my was a big point, using Mannequins was extremely important to get an initial base mesh. A really big point to Pixologic to include those

Thanks Gabo1991! Here is a little breakdown from the process. A commonly create cartoon characters from primitives and was wondering if I can apply same pipeline to any other figure. Every time I take a look on my kid, I was zbrushing in my head.........I know I am an addict. Was wondering that I could use same methodology to be able to recreate him and it worked. Everything started as single spheres which I re-shaped and placed. Once everything looks "correct" I Dynamesh it, so I can start the sculpt. Must admit the sculpt became easier as most of the spheres already did the big job. Hope this works to you guys! Keep the zbrush fun!
