Stylized Warrior 3D Character Concept: ZBrush Tutorial Review

Typically, I wouldn't show tutorial work because it's a bit paint-by-numbers: opportunities to show your creativity, originality, problem solving, and style are limited. However, I like how this turned out (and I took those chances to inject a bit of myself into it, so it's not entirely a replica). Most importantly, there's much I loved about and learned from the course. Instructor Nikolay Naydenov did a lot of things well that I found missing from or frustrating about other lessons, so I wanted to review it.

Short version: Nikolay teaches ZBrush rather than art fundamentals, talks through every action and explains every detail, is informal and funny, and the project itself is engaging.
