ZBrush 2018 Techniques

Issue 120 of 3D Artist is out now!

This issue we’ve revved up our modelling skills with ZBrush 2018 beta testers! Featuring some of the best artists in the industry, we’ve got the inside scoop on why you should pick up the latest version today and everything you need to take your techniques to the next level with the new updates!

From top tips to get the most out of ZBrush 2018 with the likes of Maarten Verhoeven, Marlon R Nunez and Oscar Trejo, to an in-depth guide on pro vehicle design using the newest features by beta tester Nelson Tai, there’s plenty for you to get stuck in with.

Also in the issue we’ve spoken to some of the movers and shakers taking virtual reality to new heights, The Mill on working on Beck’s latest music video with director Edgar Wright and animator Peter Monga tells us how he used Unreal Engine 4 to create animated series Morgan Lives In A Rocket House.

Our tutorials this issue, meanwhile, dives deep into the world of Substance Designer as Bungie lead environment artist Daniel Thiger walks us through creating a watch procedurally with just the Allegorithmic tool. Farid Ghanbari also gives us a pro V-Ray masterclass in rendering and lighting, and we head to the beach with Lucas Stringhetti who discusses how he created his beachbox diorama with Houdini FX. You can also learn to create an asset for VR, enhance your backplates with Clarisse, and create realistic grass with the Vertex library.
