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.

Polly Frame's Perambulations
Knacki, thank you - much appreciated. With an interest in ZBrush as 3D visual synthesizer as well as a sculpting tool I decided to play using the facilities of booleans to create a BPR render that reads like a loose crosshatch sketch using ZBrush's polyframe settings (Transform Palette + Preferences>Draw) whilst utilizing the poly structure and polygroups of the subtracting forms in a Boolean operation as a means of drawing. Also used > Tool (subtool)>display properties> polygons draw size - to create effects where the linear division between polygons can be widened and also represented in a bpr render mask. I'd like to explore the possibilities of this more as well as other features of 4r8. What, I asked myself whilst doodling, if polyframe settings could allow for further settings beyond the representation of the actual polygonal structure by including functionality that allowed for further pattern and abstracted divisions with regard their polygonal representation? Fanciful thoughts soon gripped me that effects of grain and noise were also possible by the fracturing of these linear divisions of the polyframe settings as were polyframe setting for outer lines only - outer lines to concentric center etc etc Yours etc, Boozy

I took ZBrush 4R8 for a test for the first time and set a time frame to see how far I could get within an old fashioned working day of 8 hours . I started with an array for the trees and took it from there. I must say there's a great flow possible thanks to the new features. Fiendishly clever stuff Pixologic, 4r8 is exquisite to use.

Render BPR Background Image Plane/Object Without Scene Shadow Or Render Shadow Map
Rendering A Background Image Plane Or Object In A BPR Render Scene That Does Not Receive Shadows From Subtool Scene Objects Nor Generates A Shadow Render Map Pass For That Surface. A Boozy Tip. This tip I find can ensure a better edge integrity between scene objects and a bg image plane in a single render rather than compositing a scene render with a background in photoshop using a mask render. This is also useful for edge integrity in fibermesh renders as well as controlling shadows on scene elements. The recipe is simple: Ensure all your subtools other than the background image plane have been material filled. To Material fill all visible polypaint subtools quickly use ZPLugins Menu>SubTool Master>Fill >Fill Only Material. To material fill any texture mapped subtools>select your material> select subtool>Tools>Texture Map>Fill Mat With the bg image plane subtool selected >Tools>Display Properties>BPR Settings >Switch on BPR Transparent Shading and ensure that BPR Visibility =100 (you do not need to switch on Transparency settings in the render palette). Select an active material which will become your material choice for the bg image plane that has not been material filled. Standardly you might choose Flat Color or other materials with different diffuse qualities to dim or brighten your background as required. NB: Flat Color Material as your active material will not produce shadowing on the non material filled bg image plane but it will create a render shadow map in your render passes - therefore even with flat color as the active material you will need to switch on Tools>Display Properties>BPR Settings >Switch on BPR Transparent Shadow >BPR Visibility =100 If you're using extreme perspective you may have to adjust the subtool bg image plane to suite your view accordingly. Finally it may be helpful to know that you can also control shadows density on one object by another by going to Tools>Display Properties>BPR Settings >and adjusting the BPR Shadow slider to adjust the shadow density cast by the occluding object. Hope it helps, Yours etc, Boozy

Fool's End
Created and textured in ZBrush and originally rendered as an early mood test in Carrara some 8 years ago, I decided to revisit and complete this piece in ZBrush 2.5D. Markers were used for positioned scene texturing across multiple layers as well as zapplink saved views for projection master painting in relation to view . The shadow map renders from Carrara I recycled to use as stencils in ZBrush to paint the ground shadows in 2.5D. Thank your popping by and thank you Dear Jochin, Metin, Ronald and Ian for your most heartening hellos. Ian!! I was just admiring your work two nights ago from a folder I found from those myspace days and had been talking to Mrs Boozy about your work. It's therefore a fated delight that you are here! I remember back then you were interested in using 3D for guiding shadow integrity within your painting. If you need any help with ZBrush do not hesitate to message me here. All being well my next ZBrush piece will be pretty and and a little bit girly :-) Yours etc, Boozy
