In this lesson we will extract the black and white line detailing out of our design file and get it ready for ZBrush.

Preview 10:54

Lets now show you method 1 for getting a 3D version of our black and white artwork.

We will use extraction for this method.

This method gives you a better version using polygrouping by mask!

For this we will be poly grouping and then we will use the ZRemodeller brush in this case it gives us a better result and is only adding subdivisions to the Mandala parts rather than the whole plane!
