ZBrush is a fantastic tool for creating models for use in computer games. Using a wide range of powerful tools you can create models for vehicles, props, environments, and characters.
This book makes creating game art in ZBrush fast and easy. It covers everything you need to create models of all kinds for your game projects, even if you’ve never used ZBrush before.
Built around four complete ZBrush projects, the book gives you everything you need to sculpt props, vehicles, and creatures in ZBrush. You’ll start by creating a “spooky tree” model, mastering the sculpting, texturing, and decoration skills that are essential for all ZBrush topics. Next you’ll move to man-made objects with a sci-fi drone. Next you’ll see how to sculpt monsters and other creatures, deal with cloth and other soft materials, and prepare the model to become an animated, controllable character in a game. The final project returns to machines, building a complete, detailed spaceship for use in your sci-fi games.
