If you are new to the world of 3D modelling, you might have heard the name ZBrush but are maybe not quite sure exactly what it is or possibly unclear about what this amazing piece of software can actually do.
In a nutshell, ZBrush is the industry-standard 3D tool for any kind of organic style modelling, for example, lifelike computer-generated characters that you will come across in video games or movies.
Unlike most 3D software that relies on primitive shapes and polygons, which is great for the more industrial type of models such as cars, architecture, bottles and the like, ZBrush focuses on sculpting more organic features such as faces and anatomy using virtual clay in a more artistic rather than technical sort of environment.
ZBrush is laser-focused on 3D sculpting, which means that it is not as versatile as applications such as Maya or Blender but for character design and concepting in a 3D environment, ZBrush is way out in front and the market leader in this field.
ZBrush by Pixologic is the industry-standard creative tool for 3D character design, used by major game creators and the top movie studios to produce believable computer-generated characters who inhabit fantastical worlds that have universal audience appeal.
However, for the budding 3D artist ZBrush at first glance can appear to be a daunting, intimidating piece of software that could possibly take a lifetime to master and make no mistake the learning curve for software of this type is very steep indeed and not for the faint-hearted.
Getting well informed, constructive and entertaining instruction at the very start of your journey into the world of 3D sculpting can save hours and hours of frustration, struggle and despair.
