by Lee Magalhaes

In this tutorial we will study the differences between male and female anatomy, particularly the arm and hands. Software required: ZBrush 4R6.

What you'll learn

In this tutorial we will study the differences between male and female anatomy, particularly the arm and hands. With a direct focus on softer shapes and the overall outline of the model we will quickly block out the shapes and explore the major differences between genders. This tutorial is best done after you've completed the more in depth male anatomy series since it assumes your familiarity with the anatomical structure of the arm. Software required: ZBrush 4R6.
