About this course

On this course, we’ll create a suit of armor, using classical and medieval style components with help from some of the new tools the latest version of ZBrush has to offer. We’ll show you the most efficient workflow, which is to sculpt the pieces one by one and then put together the whole suit of armor.

With this course, you’ll learn about the software’s new tools and you’ll improve your skills and knowledge of the program.
