Course Description

Before you can animate characters and creatures – these creations must be setup with a process called “rigging”. These courses act as a guide through a vast understanding of how the technical aspect of rigging can be completed with ease, to prepare you for your career as an animator.

From there he will be covering topics such dynamesh, additional damage sculpting, insert mesh, and more. In this series, we jump into creating textures in ZBrush using polypainting and Fibermesh in ZBrush. We'll use Fibermesh to create hair element individually and then we'll use the groom brushes to add more natural variations to the fibres or hairs we create. Finally, we'll use polypainting to colour or tint the hair to something more naturalistic and complimentary to the character. A final render to see how it all turns out and then looking at the render pass in Photoshop will complete our whirlwind introduction to Fibermesh!
