Step 1 – Block outs
When you have ZBrush Core opened you have different types of tools & projects to start from in the light box drop-down menu, it is all entirely up to you or you can use our Female Anatomy Figure Ecorche which also comes with a ecorche anatomy basemesh. Once you have something to start from, our main objection for this step is to block out all the female structure and shape, at this stage we not too concerned about the details but just getting those major forms.
Because our anatomy figure will be in a anatomical position, 7 & a half heads where used for measurement, you can visit the male ecorche sculpting tutorial for measurement breakdown. The brushes used on this regard were: Move/topological, clay build up, demi-standard & standard brush.
Step 2 – Sketching
Now here we focus on sketching out muscles on the mesh, again we not too really concerned about the details but we will use these lines to help us build our forms so it very important that your sketching is anatomically correct. What we normally liken this stage as it’s like when you draw faint lines on a paper which serves as guide lines but not the final work. You need to know the anatomy, your skeleton and were your muscles originate and insert.
And don’t worry we will still fix our silhouette and proportions. You can use our Female Anatomy Figure Ecorche as your reference to follow along.
Step 3 – Primary forms
Step 3 we focus on the primary forms. The primary forms represents the bigger shapes of your figure or character, so this step is very important please spend more time on it. Now we will be using our guide lines we sketched in step 2 to build up our bigger forms around those lines, on this step we take into consideration the proportions & silhouette.
It is very important to check proportions again after making huge changes on your mesh. Because our anatomy figure is in anatomical position, 7 & a half heads where used for measurement. You can use our Female Anatomy Figure Ecorche as your reference to follow along.
