get your zbrushes ready to sculpt

Ever wondered how on earth high-poly sculpts are made in Zbrush for games or movies? Well, it’s not the ‘make-art’ button; there are actually many buttons to press! Come along and we’ll give you a demo on some sculpting workflows – feel free to either follow along with our help, or you’re welcome to just take notes.
