2B from NieR Automata #3: Shoes & Clothes – Fan Art sculpting with ZBrush

This is the third part of a figurine creation series that was broadcasted on ZBrushLIVE. Using ZBrush, Thomas digitally sculpts 2B of the NieR Automata video game using fan art as reference.

Thomas will start his presentation with a quick talk about the benefits of quick 3D prints to visualize the shape, but also how important it is to prepare the model in advance for this process and understanding the constraints of supports.

Then everything else is focused on the beginning of the clothes/shoe creation using a topology-based creation, including the Topology brush usage as well as the ZSphere retopology, before moving to traditional subdivision levels sculpting.
