In this course, students will become familiarized with the Zbrush user interface and the most commonly used sculpting tools and practices. The course will be focused on using few very powerful sculpting tools and techniques in Zbrush which make for a straightforward sculpting style and provide fantastic foundations for any future artistic projects. Students will be taken through the complete process of organic sculpting using various photo references. The course will explain the importance of silhouette, primary, secondary and tertiary forms. Students will explore different methods of object and form creation and manipulation and learn different techniques of sculpting.

The course will focus on the understanding of sculptural form through several different subjects each focusing on a different problem. Students will be introduced to the Zbrush workflow and the possibilities of developing or incorporating Zbrush into their art practices. This approach enables students to develop their understanding, knowledge, and skills and improve on a step by step, subject by subject basis. The course will teach students to recognize and interpret the character and flow of shapes through subject matter analysis. Students will explore how to express their interpretations of subject matter and achieve accurate, high fidelity sculpts (relative to their artistic background).
