    Course Description

    In the final part of Learn Digital 3d Sculpting with ZBrush and Mudbox, Emiel Sleegers is going to be covering how to sculpt and build a catacomb environment using Maya and ZBrush. From there he will be covering topics such dynamesh, additional damage sculpting, insert mesh, and more. In this series, we jump into creating textures in ZBrush using polypainting and Fibermesh in ZBrush. We'll use Fibermesh to create hair element individually and then we'll use the groom brushes to add more natural variations to the fibres or hairs we create. Finally, we'll use polypainting to colour or tint the hair to something more naturalistic and complimentary to the character. A final render to see how it all turns out and then looking at the render pass in Photoshop will complete our whirlwind introduction to Fibermesh!

    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
