Issue 180 of 3D World is on sale now (opens in new tab), featuring the first part of Dan Crossland (opens in new tab)'s ZBrush sculpting tutorial in partnership with 3DTotal (opens in new tab). 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 (opens in new tab).
Crossland's model is the second in a range of affordable anatomical reference figures for artists from 3D Total (opens in new tab). The final figure will be a 26.5cm tall, grey resin statue, making her the perfect desktop companion for digital artists. To find out more and to register for the Kickstarter project visit the 3D Total website (opens in new tab).
