Course Description

Before you can animate characters and creatures – these creations must be setup with a process called “rigging”. These courses act as a guide through a vast understanding of how the technical aspect of rigging can be completed with ease, to prepare you for your career as an animator. In the Bipedal Rigging Series, we take a thorough look at the complete process of rigging, creating bones, skinning, and painting weights of a character from start to finish in Maya. In this course, Justin Harrison gives us a thorough introduction to Autodesk's Motion Builder, as well as instructor Chad Robert Morgan, who will go through the features of Human IK within Maya.

    In this course, it focuses on sculpting and using dDo, as instructor Galen Davis takes us through the complete pipeline of creating a Fantasy Shield. This course takes a complete look at modelling and unwrapping a hard-surface prop, starting with creating a high poly of this bomb-case asset. Moving forward, Emiel Sleegers will be going over on how to create a tileable texture using both ZBrush and Substance Designer. To start he will be sculpting some tiles in ZBrush and then use that sculpt to export various height, normal, and lightmaps. From there, he will begin his journey into Substance Designer where he will be showing you how to create the final diffuse, normal, height spec, and gloss maps. To wrap things up, he will be taking everything into Marmoset to get a quick preview of how everything will look in its final state.  Learn tips and tricks of creating dynamic animation and games design. - Know about the different branches in animation - Learn about what goes into making a successful animation - Understand better about the designing process with this course - Be able to create your own monsters and creatures at the end of this course

    Course Description

    In the second part of Master the Hand-Painted Texturing Style, we will utilize a combination of Maya and Photoshop to take a concept for a stylized weapon and translate that into a fully realized low poly hand painted asset for use within a videogame environment. We'll also take a look at some of the process and techniques used to create the texture map, being sure to replicate the crafted look of the concept. Tools such as clipping masks, Variations and Dilation will be utilized to help keep our texture easy to maintain and looking neat for potential future revisions. Throughout the creation process we'll also touch upon how things relate to a production environment whilst also pointing out any areas which are likely to generate the need for some problem solving. At the end of this course you will be able to create and understand the workflow that I use to create stylized environments like this one.  Learn tips and tricks of creating dynamic animation and games design. - Know about the different branches in animation - Learn about what goes into making a successful animation - Understand better about the designing process with this course - Be able to create your own monsters and creatures at the end of this course
