View Full Version : The Gnomon Workshop Releases New Introduction to ZBrush 3 with Ryan Kingslien DVD

10 October 2008, 11:21 PM

Hello All,

The Gnomon Workshop has just released my Introduction to ZBrush DVD ( The first in a series of 7 planned DVDs!

It is over 7 hours long and contains 33 different chapters. Each chapter is between ten and twenty minutes long for easy digestion.

The tutorial is based off the curriculum I developed for training at companies such as ILM, EA and Ubisoft. It represents all the effort I have put into teaching ZBrush to beginners over the years.

It covers the following:

Get Sculpting in 5 Minutes
Sculpting Fundamentals
Sculpting Details
Documents verse Tools
Sculpting Workflow with Clay Brush
Understanding Brushes
Polygroups and SubTools
ZSphere Quadraped
ZSphere Hands
Posing Your Model
Transpose Master
MatCap Materials
Material Basics
Managing Materials
PolyPainting Essentials
PolyPainting Multiple Objects
PolyPainting with Cavity
ZAppLink Part 1
ZAppLink Part 2
Exporting PolyPainting
Using ZMapper Primer
Displacement Maps Primer
Topology Primer
Currently, I am also planning for an Intermediate ZBrush DVD and an Advanced ZBrush DVD. The other ones will have to remain a mystery for now. After doing this first DVD, I don't think I could ever finish talking about ZBrush!

Happy ZBrushing,

Wow, looks nice Ryan. I'll definitely check it out. And 7 more dvd's? daang. Looking forward to see what you have in store for the future.

How is this one different from the earlier intro to zbrush dvd's?

Grgeon - Hello. First, this one is done in the ZBrush 3.1 interface. There is some overlap in topics like Normal Mapping, Displacement Maps and tool descriptions. This DVD, however, is designed to provide a context for each tool that comes from my background in the development of ZBrush. An insiders look, so to speak. :)

Hope that answers your question.
