Sculpting CG Creatures in ZBrush: Elder Thing

Learn the advanced techniques in sculpting a complex 3d monster bust using ZBrush

In this series, we take on one of the very oddest creatures of the Cthulhu pantheon: the Elder Thing! We'll be using Dynamesh for the entire alien entity but we're going to pull some "Frankensteining" - that is, we're going to be creating different parts of the creature in different files to refine and finesse them before adding them to a singular IMM brush so that we can 'sew' together all the different elements into one cohesive, yet awesomely monstrous creature! We'll be running the gamut for detailing using brushes, alphas, layers and the IMM brush to end up with a very unique entity that would make Lovecraft proud!
