Creating a believable, yet stylized animal is no easy task. In this course, Stylized Animal Modeling for Games, you'll be taken through all of the steps necessary to get you started on creating a stylized animal in Zbrush and a solid foundation for creating any animal in the future. You will start off by looking at the concept art and going over the importance of using anatomy reference to create believability even when creating a stylized sculpt. After that, you'll learn how to block out the base mesh, which is created by separating the main forms of the animal into different parts. Then, you will build upon the base and refine the secondary shapes of the animal. Next, you will create accessories and armor for your animal using 3DS Max and Zbrush. Finally, you will add the final polish and details to your sculpt. When you're finished with this sculpting course, you'll not only know the process for creating stylized animals in Zbrush but, also be able to apply the same techniques you've learned to any animal you create in the future.
