More about this downloadable

This series begins with the key principles and techniques used to model the environment before moving on to a chapter dedicated to creating a gargoyle in ZBrush - the focal point in the scene. Here the author starts by creating a rough body using ZSpheres and move through the numerous sculpting phases, modeling the details for each part of the character and highlighting the various brushes and tools used throughout. The final chapters cover texturing, lighting and rendering the scene, along with post-production in Photoshop and culminate in a stylish 3D version of the original concept.
