Work smart with your Zbrush UI

Anything that stimulates our mind can affect our productivity, and it’s important to recognise factors that support our work, whether that be the right kind of background music or even our choice of lighting. Another consideration is a customised user interface. When we have become familiar with a software, we work faster and learn quicker. The trick is to surround ourselves with the tools we use most frequently, shortcuts (like these Photoshop shortcuts) to speed up our workflow, and even a favourite colour scheme. 

If you want to speed up your workflow, ZBrush offers the option to customise the UI. Take advantage of those tools and turn it into your own canvas. If you don't want to remember multiple shortkeys, you can bring all the necessary brushes and buttons to the forefront, and make them available for quick switching at any point.
