The final result is a very simple and basic head model with no particular expression, and that is exactly what I want since I can now bring it into ZBrush and start shaping it the way I want (Fig.07).

So I export my model (with no UVs) as an OBJ into ZBrush (Fig.08).

In ZBrush I donít add any divisions to my model; I just use the base model I just created and start moving it around using the Move brush and the Move Topological brush. The Move Topological is a very useful brush that allows you to move the lower lip without affecting the upper lip, for example, and all that without having to create groups or masks (Fig.09).

The main reason why I donít want to add divisions at this point is because I want to make sure that I wonít need to change my topology to support the new deformations. By doing it this way I donít need to add or move cuts, and I am able to move on to the next part without too much hassle (Fig.10).

Now Iím all set and ready to start sculpting in ZBrush. See you next time.
