TUTORIAL Sculpting Wood in ZBRUSH 3 EASY STEPS Polygon Academy


By Polygon Academy

In this video I show how I have been sculpting wood in Zbrush for my ArtStation challenge. I use 3 basic brushes (trimbordersmooth, claytubes, DamStandard) to create an aged, damaged wood piece. This basic zbrush tutorial is designed for beginners or experienced artists.

Tips: focus on the large to medium forms, and avoid a noisy pillowy look. Also fine details can be added in substance or Unreal to save time.
