Create the Perfect Sculpt and Painting Base

Create the Perfect Sculpt and Painting Base

By Mike Thompson

In this tutorial, Mike uses ZBrush to craft the model of what he will be painting. He establishes main, fill and backlighting in ZBrush to bring in to KeyShot where he perfects the lighting. From there, on to Photoshop to mask out areas for compositing and prep for painting. Then in to Painter for a quick Auto-Paint on Spider Gwen to get things started.
