New Follygon Tutorial: Creating a Fun Pokemon Scene


Perfect for Absolute Beginners and Intermediate Users Looking to Learn in a Structured, Fun Way!

Hey all, I wanted to tell you about my New Tutorial where you will learn how to sculpt fun Pokemon characters in ZBrush from someone that has professionally worked on the Pokemon IP. Starting from nothing and finishing with a final render in Blender. All while learning the ins and outs of my workflow to create a successful final image.

Each successive chapter in this tutorial builds on top of the last. Start slow by learning the ins and outs of ZBrush instructed with in-depth analysis and step by step instruction. Next, begin ramping up your knowledge and toolset with each chapter as fun brushes and new tools are introduced. Walk away from this tutorial with a deeper understanding of the ZBrush software, sculpting characters, creating environments, rendering in Blender, post processing in Photoshop, and the overall workflow for creating a successful image.

I love to say simple doesn't mean easy, so expect me to go in depth on every aspect of creating this scene. My entire process is covered in this tutorial so that even an absolute beginner will be able to follow along. Additionally there will be plenty of great information, tips, and advice for advanced users as well.

This tutorial is FREE for all members of The Rendered tier on my Patreon.
