    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

    SGD $189.00

    Course Description

    This course will start with an introduction and teaches many of the advanced techniques talented artists use to create this style of 3d asset. We'll show you the creation process for low poly weapons with a strong emphasis on hand painted texture maps. We'll begin by modelling a sword in Maya 2011, show the unwrapping process, and take you step-by-step through creating hand-painted, stylized textures for both a sword and a shield asset. Following that, we'll dive into reviewing the concept art and blocking out some base shapes, and from there jump into the wonderful world of UV unwrapping. Next, we'll be taking a look at the different stone, metal, and wood surface types we'll be painting, discuss and decide where we can save some texture resolution by sharing UV space, and then get moving on bringing the texture and visual look and feel.
