The Complete ZBrush to MODO Workflow

MODO and ZBrush are two incredibly powerful tools that enhance any artist’s arsenal significantly. In this elaborate 3D tutorial series, we will take an in-depth look at not only how we can make the two programs play well together – we will take you through an industry-proven and professional workflow for creating beautiful and memorable art.


It’s one of the hardest and most satisfying endeavors to undertake while working in 3D. Almost every 3D artist has tried it at some point, and yet there are hardly any 3D tutorials explaining how you go about doing just that. It’s high time to demystify this subject.

Simply put, this is the most elaborate tutorial out on the subject of character creation – using MODO and ZBrush. We cover everything from optimizing Modo for modeling to concept sculpting, efficient retopology, production-ready UV mapping, UDIM workflow, doing fine details in ZBrush, setting up a displacement map in MODO, and much, much more. The entire series is packing a whopping 11.5 hours of quality training.


Character creation can be incredibly frustrating – both from an artistic point of view and most definitely from a technical point of view. Throughout this 3D tutorial, we cover the entire production – explaining WHY the specific steps are taken. By the time you finish, you will have a solid understanding of how to work reliably with characters – time and time again. Not only is the information useful, but it’s also based around a professional character workflow, used by us daily as professionals in the VFX industry.


The two of us have over 20 years of experience working with ZBrush combined. Currently, we are working as character modelers and texture artists in visual effects in London, on films such as Batman V Superman, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and many more. We used the knowledge from our professional jobs at MPC and Framestore to bring you the best and most relevant information available.
