This was a delightful book. It covers the strategies behind choosing what is important in creature design for imagery and Film which was very very interesting and educational. it was a transfer of very valuable knowledge that would otherwise take years of practice in the industry to acquire.

Resourceful depending on your purpose. Sept. 16 2013
By Ariel Elliott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although I've used Zbrush for about two years now, and am fairly familiar, I haven't used it consistently enough to be incredibly savvy. I was hoping to find a book that not necessarily introduced me to Zbrush, but provided better methods of how to go about anything affiliated with Zbrush (sculpting, texturing, lighting, re-topology, posing.) Spencer provided quick tutorials on how to do a few of these things, but not as many I as I was hoping. I suppose that is partly my fault, seeing as the subtitle is "Creating Dynamic Concept Imagery for Film and Games." I believe many who are in search of a character/creature modeling resource, this is likely not ideal for you. I think it's awesome for someone who is a skilled modeler but primarily a concept artist, because it allows one to integrate Zbrush sculpting and Photoshop painting into one. However, this book was one if not the top-rated Zbrush resource, which I think is deceiving for people who, like me, desire a greater understanding of Zbrush alone.

Not really for zrush April 2 2013
By Jordan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book doesn't really have anything to do with zbrush. Ive went through it front to back a few times. Its more of a general book on how creatures should look. Stuff like gesture lines etc, basic art school stuff.
I was really hoping for a book that actually helps you make this stuff in zbrush.
To everyone else, I would save my money and just get a digital tutors subscription.
I think one of my college instructors must be friends with Scott, because we all had to order this book, and we didn't open it the whole semester. Bummer...

EDIT=
I must edit this to correct my review a little further, i guess its kind of vague.
What I mean by this review, is that if you are a beginner or intermediate zbrush artist, this will not really help you.
However, if you know your way around zbrush, this book would be great. It will tell you how to accomplish a certain look, but it will by no means tell you how to do it.
It might say, "add a little more bust to add more form" but it will not tell you what tools, or how to do it.
But if you have taken any college level art courses, or have any fundamentals of design knowledge, this book will not help you.
As I stated earlier, this is more of a book on how to get the right gesture lines, and "pose" your creature for a glamour shot. Not an actual "how to create characters in zbrush" as the title leads you to believe.
If this is your first Scott Spencer book, I would highly recommend the 2nd edition of character creation first. I found it easier for a beginner to grasp

Love the tutorials and the videos. Some images in the book are blurry - thus the 4 stars. Best Zbrush book I own.

Must have for all serious ZBrush artists! May 10 2012
By Eric S Keller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was quite honored to edit this book and I have read it in its entirety. Scott's techniques are based on his years of experience as a sculptor, effects artist and ZBrush teacher. The lessons in this book use the latest ZBrush techniques and take you through the process of creating amazing work for your portfolio. Scott shares with you the same techniques he uses at the Weta workshop in New Zealand. This book is destined to be a classic! Even though I have been using ZBrush for years Scotts tutorials have changed the way I work and I believe my portfolio has improved a lot as a result.

Outstanding Book!!! May 1 2012
By PaulG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are a ZBrush user you need to have this book. Scott's book is chalked full of amazing tutorials and amazing pieces. This book has inspired me to sculpt up some new designs. I will be telling everyone about this book. Scott always gives detailed tutorials that are easy to follow and are bursting at the seams with cool tricks.

Enjoy the book.
