In this course we jump into the worlds of ZBrush dynamesh sculpting and H.P. Lovecraft at the same time! We tackle the Old God, Cthulhu, by starting with a simple dynamesh sphere and using several techniques, we pull and push and sculpt a basic shape for Cthulhu's head and make a quick torso and temporary tentacles. We then expand our repertoire in creating more detail sculpting by using a variety of brushes, alphas, layers and some finesse to get a final fantastic sculpt of one of Lovecraft's faves: Cthulhu!
