Issue 180 of 3D World is on sale now, featuring the first part of Dan Crossland's ZBrush sculpting tutorial in partnership with 3DTotal. Over the course of five issues Crossland will share his process for creating an écorché - a drawn or sculpted human figure with the skin removed to display the musculature - life drawing model.

You'll learn to sculpt the figure, its anatomy and then in the final step piece it together and get it ready for 3D printing. You'll be able to order the final écorché model through 3DTotal, with details coming soon via the website.
