Character Concept and Sculpting Techniques in 3D Coat

by Eric Kunzendorf

This course will teach you character sculpting techniques using voxel sculpting and surface modeling in 3D Coat. Software required: 3D Coat 4.5.40 and Cura

What you'll learn

Create detailed character concepts while developing your knowledge of voxel-sculpting and the Digital Clay paradigm pioneered by 3D Coat. This course, Character Concept and Sculpting Techniques in 3D Coat, is an intermediate course where you'll learn how to do just that by creating a character from Stephen R. Donaldson's Chronicles of Thomas Covenant series: the evil Ur-vile. In this course, you'll explore 3D Coat's many sculpting toolsets as well as character concept creation and execution. You'll also learn how to use both voxels and surface modeling to bring this character sculpt to life. By the end of this course, your sculpting skills will be sharpened and you'll be better equipped to create your own character concepts in the future. Software required: 3D Coat 4.5.40 and Cura
