Sculpting details

When all the base meshes were imported into ZBrush, it was time for sculpting. First, I thought about what kind of material it should be, and tried to collect reference photos of related objects.

Sculpting can be defined in terms of three stages:
1. Low frequency details
2. Mid frequency details
3. High frequency details

For example, skins can be defined like:
1. General muscle form
2. Subtle bumpiness
3. Pore, wrinkle detail

ZBrush has a great option in the brush settings ? Spray. Using the alpha map with Spray is a fast and efficient way to generate basic surface details.

Once I had enough detail for the base, I kept putting more details on top. DamStandard, Trim Dynamic, and Alpha with DragRect brush options were my usual choices.

Great work, Mike! Thank you for taking the time to prepare this tutorial. I love the tertiary details on the props, and for some reason I really like the pants despite its simple design, some nice sculpting there. - being a lazy TD that I am, I'd probably have simulated it in Marvelous Designer as well and maybe ZRemesh.
