Digital Character Sculpting and Design

Digital sculpting enables 3D artists and designers to explore form quickly and intuitively, allowing them to shape ideas as if they were manipulating clay. In this hands-on studio course, study the fundamentals of digital character sculpting using Pixologic ZBrush, a software application renowned for its versatile digital sculpting capabilities. Focusing on a small selection of sculpting tools, you will learn to create organic, hard-surface, and stylized 3D forms while working to construct appealing character designs. Fine art practices such cartooning, caricature, and illustration will be examined, alongside basic principles of artistic anatomy and figurative design. Also, explore ideas through digital design sketches that you will develop later into a refined project aligned with your own personal goals and interests. This course is open to beginners interested in learning ZBrush or in developing digital characters for toy design, illustration, graphic design, 3D animation, interactive video games, or the fine arts.
