Androids started appearing in science fiction over a hundred years ago, and have since evolved from robotic machines into more fully humanoid shapes. With modern 3D modeling tools like ZBrush, it’s easier than ever to create a realistic looking android that bridges the divide between man (or woman) and machine. In this course, Ryan Kittleson teaches you how to model a female android with ZBrush’s powerful modeling and sculpting tools. He shows how to start with a basic model and refine and stylize the anatomy. Then you’ll learn how to concept machine-inspired parts like vents and wheels; create clean, hard edges; refine delicate areas like hands, feet, and joints; and add finishing details like seams. In the end, you’ll put the android into an action pose and create a rendered turntable video that shows off your model.

Topics include:

  • Gathering reference materials
  • Getting a base model
  • Stylizing the android’s body
  • Exploring design concepts
  • Making pivoting joints
  • Creating precise mechanical shapes
  • Adding thickness to panels with Panel Loops
  • Making a foot with DynaMesh
  • Making a tire with radial symmetry
  • Reducing polygons with Decimation Master
  • Preparing for rigging and posing
  • Applying materials
