This 6-week ONLINE level 2 course will take you to the next step of digital sculpting with ZBrush, the leading digital sculpting application in the industry. Going beyond sculpting the figure and organic subjects, we will be focusing on sculpting hard-surface mechanical objects such as props. We will also cover how to paint directly on your 3D models.

Lessons & demonstrations via Zoom. Students will be following along, doing a series of planned exercises and working on their own project.
