2017 ZBrush Summit

Get ready for the ZBrush Summit 2017! This October 6-8th, Pixologic will be taking over Hollywood's prestigious Gnomon School facilities to bring you the ultimate ZBrush experience. This year the LIVE Sculpt-Off (online only) will take place the Thursday October 5th leading into the 3 days of presentations.

The annual Summit is the year's biggest event for ZBrush community. This three day event streamed live around the world is a way for digital artists to connect not only with the Pixologic team, but also with luminaries from all segments of the industry. The days are packed with talented artists presenting a variety of ZBrush techniques used in real-world productions. Many of the demonstrations feature assets previously unseen outside of the studios.

Thanks to the combination of streaming technology and social media, viewers are able to become participants, interacting with each other no matter where they are located and even having their questions answered by the presenters. If you're unable to join us on-site, you will be able to stream the event live on ZBrushLIVE.

2016 ZBrush Summit Highlights


Pixologic's ZBrush is an all-in-one digital sculpting solution

designed for the pursuit of art.

ZBrush is the 3D industry's standard digital sculpting application. Use customizable brushes to shape, texture, and paint virtual clay, while getting instant feedback. Work with the same tools used by film studios, game developers and artists the world over.

Dynamesh is ZBrush’s digital clay. It rebuilds the topology of your model as you sculpt, creating a smooth, even surface for you to add fine details. Step between different resolutions of your model, and changes on any level will be applied to each one. This enables you to create complex models, but still be able to make big changes when you need to.

These are just a few of the unique and powerful features you'll love about ZBrush. Learn more at Pixologic.com.

ZBrush pioneered multi-resolution digital sculpting, transforming how artists conceive and realize their final designs. ZBrush has enabled artists to create models far more quickly and with much greater detail than previous approaches.
