A masterclass in animal anatomy and creature sculpting in ZBrush
Over the course of four and a half hours of video training, Krystal reveals her own personal workflow for creating a digital sculpture of an animal – in this case, a spotted hyena – in ZBrush, Maya and KeyShot.
During the tutorial, Krystal also discusses her approach to artistic fundamentals like animal anatomy, creating a dynamic pose for the sculpt, and choosing a compelling composition for the final render.
