“Zach has set the bar for sculpting training in Blender with this course. If you’re like me, there are sliders in the sculpting toolbars that you’ve never touched, having no idea what they do. Those days are over! Zach covers it all and then some! And it’s not just technical, it’s also technique. Everyone from beginner to expert could learn a skill or two from Zach. It doesn’t get much more epic than this!”Sean Kennedy

3D Artist & Blender Trainer
“Digital sculpting is one of my big passions. Blender is the 3d tool of my choice. I use it for client and personal projects nearly every day.
I am the co-initiator of the yearly event SculptJanuary.
In the past few years I held various Blender sculpting workshops.
Now, I want to share everything that I have learned in a well-structured video training to bring your sculpting skills to the next level.”

CHAPTER 1 – SCULPTING TOOLS & SETTINGS
In the first chapter you will learn sculpting techniques and how to use the sculpt mode tools, settings and brushes. Additionally, you will learn how to create base meshes, how to solve common sculpting problems and how to use the Sculpt Tools and SpeedSculpt add-ons. After you’ve made your way through this chapter, you will have a basic understanding of Blender’s sculpting tools and how to use them properly. You can come back to this chapter any time you need to brush up on your basic skills.

“Zacharias does it again! Honestly I wouldn’t have thought there is still something left to say about Sculpting in Blender, but this course definitely prooved the opposite to me. Zacharias shows some pretty nifty techniques to handle even the highest polycounts in Blender and achieve incredibly detailed results with just simple methods, while casually going through the whole process of sculpting! It’s amazing that there are always things in his videos that I didn’t know before.”Lukas Walzer
CHAPTER 2 – SCULPTING EXERCISE FOR BEGINNERS
In the second chapter you will learn how to sculpt a small monster from scratch. This chapter is suitable for beginners, since nearly everything is sculpted in realtime and fully commentated. Starting with a cube you will create a base mesh based on a concept drawing. After that you will add all the details using Blender’s sculpt mode. Throughout the process you will learn how to use the sculpting brushes for Dynamic Topology sculpting, how to merge different objects, how to pose a sculpting and how to create custom brush textures.

“I can’t comprehend the price Zach set his course to, it is like giving out gold for free! This course will give you the necessary tools to sculpt in Blender, covering an overwhelming amount of knowledge for beginners, intermediates and advanced users. Worth every penny, and much more. Think no more, just get it already ;).“Yanal Sosak
CHAPTER 3 – ADVANCED SCULPTING EXERCISE
In the third chapter you will learn how to sculpt a complex creature from scratch. This exercise is suitable for advanced users. Here you will learn about the full potential of Blender’s sculpt mode. You will be taught how to create a base mesh, sculpt important shapes, add separate scales to the creature, create custom brushes, optimize the mesh using Instant Meshes, pose the creature and much more. In this exercise you will use Dynamic Topology once more.

“The ULTIMATE course for sculpting in Blender! I really love all the tips and tricks that you can discover along the tutorials.
Sculpting in Blender is not a mystery anymore, I highly recommend it to everyone, beginner and advanced users as well.”
CHAPTER 4 – PROCEDURAL SHADING
In the fourth and final chapter you will discover procedural shading techniques and how to light up and render your scene. Since this course uses exclusively Dynamic Topology to create sculptings, you will have a sculpting with many polygons and bad topology in the end. In order to do a quick but nice rendering without spending hours on retopology and UV mapping, you may use quickly generated textures (procedural textures), which you will be able to map onto the sculpting without visible seams. In this chapter you will get an introduction to procedural shading, lighting, rendering, camera animation and you will create a procedural clay shader from scratch.

All important project files are included, like Blender 3d files, concept art and shaders. Additionally, two concept art timelapses are included (cute monster and creature).
Skill level: This workshop is suitable for both sculpting beginners and advanced users. However, you need to know the fundamentals of Blender, since this course is not a general introduction to the software. If you are new to Blender, start here.
Graphics tablet: A graphics tablet is recommended, because sculpting with a mouse is not much fun (although it’s possible). A graphics tablet in any size is fine. I’m using a Wacom Intous Pro M.
System: To have fun while sculpting (we will work with many polygones) a decent computer is recommended. I’m using a Windows 10 PC with 32 GB RAM, an Intel Core i7-7700K CPU and a NVIDEA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card.
