After finishing my base mesh I went on to the next step. I decided to map it before taking the model into ZBrush, because then I would be able to use some textures to assist me with the modeling (Fig.03).

ZBrush Modeling

With my base mesh ready I imported all the parts of it into ZBrush as subtools. To facilitate this process of sending the mesh to ZBrush, I sometimes use the GoZbrush option (Fig.04).

I started the modeling process by defining the best ways to add details to the body. The brushes that I use most often are Move, Standard, Clay Tubes, Inflate, Flatten, Slash and Pinch (Fig.05).

For some parts like the hair I created some alphas in Photoshop based on my mapping. I imported them in ZBrush alpha and used them as a mask. Then I went to Deformation and used the Inflate tool to sculpt the mesh based on the mask (Fig.06).

After a lot of work, I finished the modeling part in ZBrush (Fig.07 - 08).
