Conceptualize, Create and Complete 100% ZBrushZBrush is the # 1 choice of artists, used to freely explore and create digital artwork.ZBrush is a fundamental art tool, integrating and expanding all processes of artistic imagination and digital creation without the usual technological restraints. ZBrush harnesses and unleashes the creative potential and visualization of todays digital artist.There are some people who are kind of mathematical or very scientific about the way they do things. Im more organic about it. I just want to get in there and start pushing stuff around and do something. And thats what I like about ZBrush. Its so much like sculpting...That is so cool. Rick Baker - ZBrush artist, AKA monstermaker and 7 time Academy Awards winner ZBrush is my main tool here at Framestores Art Department which I use every single day. Its important to have features like DynaMesh to be able to start with something from scratch and not have to use any other software to finish my concepts. Christopher Brandstrom Framestore

ZBRUSH 4The Next Step in Digital Art

What students and educators sayFull Sail University always looks to industry leading software when creating our curriculum. Not only does ZBrush fit that mold, but the software is also easy to use and works very well with our educational pipeline. ZBrush has done a great job of seamlessly integrating their technology, which allows our students to focus more on their artistic skills. With every iteration, ZBrush continues to push the boundaries of digital sculpting and provides our students with the tools they need to stay ahead. ZBrush is definitely the most important tool for a character artist, but one can also do so much with it in environment modeling. It makes ones work so much faster. I love the freedom it gives. I think every student should really take it upon themselves to learn at least one sculpting package thoroughly. Today ZBrush is definitely the way to go.Magdalena Dadela - vFS 3D Animation & visual Effects graduate, character modeler at Guerrilla Games

Tim Bowser - Computer Animation, Modeling Department Chair Full Sail University

Brett Briley The use of ZBrush runs deep and has a huge impact in the 3D world. As a result, its not only logical that our students learn it its imperative. The relationship that we have developed with Pixologic supports that and ensures ZBrush is integrated correctly into our curriculum. VFS grads are, and always have been, in high demand and that is a result of entering the industry with relevant and current skills.The ability to use tools like ZBrush certainly helps them become successful animators (and modelers) at an accelerated rate. Marty Hasselbach - Managing Director, vancouver Film School

Depp Shang ZBrush is one of the most innovative tools to hit our industry in a long time. Since the inclusion of ZBrush to our programs, we have seen a dramatic increase in the quality of character and creature models produced by our students. ZBrush has truly unleashed the talent of our up-and-coming production artists. Gnomon was the first school to integrate ZBrush into our program and now offer 8 courses that incorporate its tools for character, creature and game specific modeling.
