Key lessons include:

- Finding reference images

- Sculpting your creature’s head and face

- Adding textures and fine details

- Coloring for a realistic pop

Don’t worry if you’ve never cracked open ZBrush before — Justin walks through the basic tools and features for beginners and intermediate designers alike.

Design a creature!

Using ZBrush or the tool of your choice (can even be pencil and paper), let your imagination run wild and design a 3D creature bust that you envision for a movie, videogame, TV show or other fantastical world.

Remember, there is no right or wrong way to do this, since the character is fictional. Find some good reference in nature, follow your gut with anatomy when it comes to 'humanizing' it, and start sculpting your digital clay!

Get started right away:

1. Gather 2-3 reference images of real-life animals you can mash together

2. Share these images in your Project Workspace

3. Update your project with process screenshots along the way

Looking forward to seeing your creatures!
