ZClassroom Videos – Military Character Assets with Joseph Drust

In this series of ZClassroom videos, Joseph Drust walks you through the steps to create a picatinny, a “molle”, a radio, and more. You’ll learn how to use the updated functions within DynaMesh as well as Insert Mesh, NoiseMaker, Decimation Master, and Mirror and Weld.

Joseph has over ten years of experience working in the video game industry as a character artist with a focus on modeling and sculpting. He has created character assets for games including Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, Ben 10 Alien Force, Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon, and most recently Ghost Recon Future Soldier. Joseph currently works as a lead character artist for Ubisoft Entertainment (Red Storm Entertainment) in Cary, North Carolina. Joseph is also a beta team member for Pixologic’s ZBrush and a certified ZBrush Instructor. In his free time Joseph kit bashes Kidrobot’s Munny Vinyl figures and gives demos on ZBrush to local schools.

From the outset, you’ll quickly notice Joseph’s incredible attention to detail and commitment to accuracy. His approach is unique and makes for extremely close replicas of the real deal. Joseph utilizes military gear reference photos and precise schematics. Most importantly, these videos are in real time, allowing Joseph to clearly outline every function he uses in ZBrush 4r4 to create these digital assets.
