Dynamic Subdivision
Dynamic Subdivisions give you the capability to preview a model at various levels of preview resolution, while respecting additional functionality like creases, without subdividing your mesh.
Dynamic SubdivisionZBrush for Concepting
Welcome to our ZBrush for Concepting six part series, featuring Joseph Drust and Andrew Bosley. Watch as we start with quickly produced 3D models and finish with a beautiful 2D concept piece. Throughout the six part series you'll learn features that include ZBrush's ZModeler Brush, 2.5D features, Alpha creation, Surface Noise, The Zbrush to Keyshot Bridge, KeyShot Rendering, and lastly a Photoshop paint over and texture overview. An amazing collaboration between Joseph Drust and Andrew Bosley. For more tutorials from Joseph visit here and for concepts by Andrew visit
ZBrush for ConceptingCreating a Character with IMM Brushes & Gizmo 3D
A three part Workshop that will focus on creating a character with three key features offered in ZBrushCore.
Creating a Character...ZModeler Introduction
Introducing, the latest tool to be added in your modeling pipeline, ZModeler Brush! This brush is geared specifically towards low polygon modeling, but not limited to. Adding-on to the standard methods of low polygon modeling, we have developed an all in one Brush that will allow you not only access all low poly modeling functions, but also intuitively develops a brush workflow. Some of the features in this brush include adding and removing multiple edge loops, beveling, extruding multiple surfaces, smooth subdivision modifiers, bridging holes and surfaces, and more. Jump into this classroom to learn all you will need to begin using this brush!Featuring 4 introductory videos to help get started before you dive into more advanced ZModeler Actions.
ZModeler IntroductionArrayMesh
ArrayMesh is an advanced array system in ZBrush that will allow you to create duplicate instances of geometry in varying patterns and shapes. This feature operates in real-time as you edit the structure of the original mesh or adjust the modifiers of the array. Using the sliders located in the ArrayMesh sub-palette or simply using ArrayMesh with Transpose can quickly generate complex instanced geometry. The ArrayMesh system also incorporates a multi-stage approach that allows you to nest multiple arrays within each other. With this system you can easily create instanced shapes such as tank treads or full buildings!
ArrayMeshRadial Symmetry
Joseph Drust will show you how Radial Symmetry works in ZBrushCore.

Portrait of MakeupFX Master: Dick Smith (WIP)
I am still alive... This is a work in progress portrait I've been working on and off for the past two months. Still unfinished, with very rough clothes, no buttons, no thin hair blending brows and hair line, likeness has good room for improvement, grooming needs work etc etc etc. But I am sharing this on other platforms, so it would be unfair not to share with this community that did so much for me over the years. The first image was rendered to test a pretty cool camera lens shader developed for Arnold by @zenopelgrims to emulate various vintage lenses. The preset I picked was the the Zeiss Biotar 1927 58mm. Very interesting result, especially on the edges, where you can see the chromatic aberration and the interesting distortion combined with the DOF. ZBrush for sculpting, Maya/Arnold 5/Randomwalk SSS for rendering. Everything you see is 100% "hand-crafted", meaning no photos, scans or commercial alphas were used, other than reference photos from the web, opened on a second monitor, to avoid any type of tracing as well. All textures were polypainted by hand using HD geometry mode (my favorite ZBrush feature by far... please, develop it further, Pixo!!! ). All detail was done either using ZBrush's default brushes or my own set of custom, hand sculpted brushes (pores, wrinkles etc), also in HD mode, at about 70million polys for head/neck/shoulders. The iris is also hand-sculpted, so what you see is actual forms, not textures. Why? Because I already use a lot of scan data in my professional work and that would be meaningless to do on my personal work, because I am in this world to learn and I like "training my eyes" to be able to see better both the macro and the micro picture. So here is what I have so far. I will be posting other things like wires, video timelapses etc, but only when I come back from my trip starting tomorrow. So, I talk to you guys in about a week or so! I hope you like it so far. Cheers!

    Takeaway for ALL ZBrush enthus : No Photoshop, Allegorithmic, MARI, Mudbox, 3D Coat or any thing outside ZBrush Everything you see is 100% "hand-crafted", meaning no photos, scans or commercial alphas were used, other than reference photos from...

    Amazing, fascinating. I'm completely curious how you made the eyes, the cornea, the eyelashes, well all of it! Please explain this if you have time.
