Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there. Welcome to this training course on sculpting a bird of prey inside of ZBrush. Thank you for signing up for Digital-Tutors and for watching this course. Now some of the things that we're going to be covering here are going to be a lot of organic sculpting with a focus on following concept art and this concept piece from start to finish. We're going to be talking a little bit about environment sculpting for the rocks and things like that, that we see in the image that we'll be using, and other things such as doing skin wrinkles, folds, how to design a beak and do more hard edged details on our bird. A lot of cool little things that we can touch upon as well as really interesting techniques for polypainting with spotlight and other really awesome tricks, so thanks so much for watching and we have a lot of stuff to cover so let's go ahead and get started.
