3D Generalist by day, Character Artist by night David Richardson shares some of his ZBrush Techniques for Creating a Mech from Concept Art with this first part of a multi part tutorial showing how to sculpt mechanical and robotic features in ZBrush.

what you can do with Spotlight is you can move references around, so if you don’t have a second monitor it is fantastic for having things on the screen
