Kick things off by learning the tools at your disposal. Under Milan's guidance, you'll learn a professional workflow for gathering references, understanding the tools offered within 3D Coat and ZBrush, and how to dynamically pose your model. This is an intense lesson, but the knowledge within is sure to help your designs stand out.
Create one full body creature rough sculpt from 3D Coat, detail it, and pose it in ZBrush. Be sure that you have multiple subtools on your sculpt, and export it from ZBrush into 3D Coat.
