Lecturer in Games / 3D Generalist
This is one of, if not, the best series of learning resources I have been through (and I have done many for more traditional 3D as well as doing some myself! (Teacher here!)).
It is a delight to learn and follow the UZG course, it is exactly what I needed, a very good introduction to ZBrush to boost my skills to the level I need - having some experience with 3D I was worried that the level would be too basic, but the content proved me wrong, it is perfect for beginners and more advanced practitioners too. I am truly enjoying the course and already ripped the benefits of it, I'm much more confident with ZBrush and looking forward to learning more.
"Welcome to the Ultimate ZBrush Guide! my name is Pablo Munoz Gomez and I'm going to be your instructor in the course. The UZG is the result of more than 3 years of planning, testing and refining a specific methodology that super simplifies the learning process and gives you the instruments to leverage the full potential of an awesome creative tool like ZBrush!
I developed the UZG to share with you every single tool and workflow that has been essential in my own process of learning ZBrush and making the art that I want to make. The purpose of this course is very straight forward: to get you super comfortable with ZBrush so you can create what you want.
By the end of this course, you'll have the confidence and the means to tackle any project in ZBrush!"
"I have had ZBrush for a while and found that, with YouTube learning videos, I was all over the map, but with Pablo's UZG course the step-by-step lessons were wonderful. I learned some hidden gems of how to do things in Zbrush, that were 'WOW' moments. Also, Pablo encouraged students to go their own pace and to develop their own style of doing art. I want to encourage anyone who is starting out in ZBrush to do this course, also any seasoned Zbrushers. There is a lot to learn and the advantage of going back into your account and replaying videos was great. I enjoyed each module."
How is the UZG different?
The UZG is not the usual tutorial series or online course. It is a carefully designed system taking you from the absolute basic and core principles of how ZBrush work, all the way to detailing, posing and rendering.
All the lessons are structured to balance the theory and the practice to create an engaging learning experience while developing your sculpting and design skills.
The systematic approach of this course allows you to develop your ZBrush skills as you build strong foundations one tool at a time!
Focused on workflows
The course covers the ZBrush tools and features, but focuses on the workflows to give you the confidence to tackle any project you want to do.
The UZG course is self-paced so you can fit it within your schedule. You also have lifetime access so there is no need to rush anything ;)
"The UZG is presented in a very systematic, clear and friendly manner. Pablo's classes demystify all the pop-up menus, the settings, and the structure of the program. His Epic Pen is a fantastic tool! While many other tutorials try to draw your attention to the cursor as they demonstrate something, and you are half-getting it and half-doubting that you are getting it, Pablo's teaching tools and skills demonstrate precisely what you need to see. ZBrush used to be a massive source of stress and anxiety for me. But now, it has become a great source of joy as I have found confidence in my work. I kid you not; this course is therapeutic! I wholeheartedly recommend any of his courses and feel very lucky to have discovered them."

"ZBrush can be really scary and unsettling at first. After reading the presentation page of the course I was convinced it would be different from any tutorials I previously went through. Trying to learn ZBrush by yourself can be really overwhelming as there is a ton of information out there going in all directions with no structured way to guide you. With this course, I finally found a way to be guided step by step through ZBrush which would help me understand its ways and secrets. I was directly put at ease by the methodology and Pablo's way to deconstruct the software to make it accessible to us. It changed my way to see ZBrush and will be a wonderful asset in the future."
"Is this course right for me?"
The UZG course and private community have been design to give you the tools, the structure and the methodology to learn ZBrush, but it is not a 'magic potion'... you'll have to put in the time and work to see the results. The systematic approach of the course relies on your commitment and eagerness to learn, just as much as you rely on the content of the lessons to master ZBrush and take your creations to the next level.
In other words, the step-by-step system works 100% as long as you trust the process and practice the workflows ;)
So this course is ideal for you if...
- You have little to no experience with ZBrush but you are eager to learn!
- You have opened ZBrush but feel overwhelmed by all the tools and features
- You are a 2D artist wanting to move into the digital and awesome world of 3D
- You want to move from ZBrushCore to the full ZBrush version
- You are struggling to take your 3D sculpting work to the next level
- You got ZBrush but you can't find an easy way to start or don't know what the first step is
- You've done things in ZBrush but you feel you are missing some of the basics
- You can easily follow online ZBrush tutorials, but feel you can't translate what you learn into your own work

"Although I thought this was a beginner's course, I decided to give it a try to get back on track. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it allowed me to re-master some features and especially to discover others that I had never used. The course is well structured, the learning path is progressive and the content is rich in examples. The life-time access to the content and updates is also great.
As for the trainer, I can say that I also really appreciated Pablo's style and skill. As English is not my first language, the clarity of his instruction is remarkable, not to mention that it is also possible to reduce the speed of the video. In summary, I'm very happy with my experience; I learned a lot."
