Setting

"Chronos" refers to one of the first gods born in the early days of the universe. After countless years of changes, the only thing that has not changed is his young and beautiful appearance and eternal loneliness. In the long river of time, the body of time quietly watched the lives of countless people but did not know where his ultimate destiny would eventually go.

Blocking

Firstly, I made a mid-poly model in 3ds Max, and then I imported it into ZBrush for sculpting. At this time, the production of the model does not require too many details, as long as the overall human body proportions are correct. There is no need to waste too much time in the early stage to adjust the details.

Secondly, we need to pay attention to some transfer processing, which can be adjusted to the final desired effect by adding lines. All that is left is to sculpt the pattern in ZBrush. This way of processing can save a lot of production.

The image below shows the processing of the collar model.

It should be noted here that the segmentation of the model should be averaged, otherwise it is easy to have insufficient local details in ZBrush. The model in the figure below is a good negative teaching material. The average problem of line distribution was not considered when making the model. As a result, there were jagged edges in many places, the effect was very bad, and the details of the normal map were also affected.

There are still some parts when making, and the details that are easy to make in 3ds Max should be done in 3ds Max as much as possible. Some details made by 3ds Max are better than those in ZBrush. For example, the place like the edge of the sock in the picture below is easier to handle in 3ds Max.

The production style of this character tends to be two-dimensional, so the edges should be rounded as much as possible. Because of the age of the character, it is enough to smooth the model.

Making of Collar Pattern

For this model, it is much easier to directly engrave the patterns on the clothing.

The production of the lower collar pattern will be specifically introduced below. Here are relatively simple tools, mainly mask tools. It is very convenient to use this tool to make patterns.

The mask drawing can be done with a Standard brush. I generally prefer to adjust the Focal shift value to -100 first. The brush at this time is very close to the hard-edged brush in PS. Then you can press SHIFT to start drawing the mask, and you can switch to the eraser tool by CTRL+ALT when drawing. In this way, a simple texture is drawn.

After drawing the mask, we make a reverse selection, hold down the CTRL cursor and click in the blank area. Then use the Inflate tool under TOOL to squeeze the pattern part.

Then use the Smooth and Pinch brushes to sculpt. First, use the Pinch brush to paint the approximate shape of the pattern, and then use the Smooth brush to simply process it. It is easy to create the effect of the pattern.

Lighting Firstly, I added a stronger background light to illuminate the edges of the characters. The lights are roughly divided into the main light source, auxiliary light source, backlight source, and a group of lights around the character. Here is an introduction to the role of this group of lights to simulate a shadow of skylight for the characters. The rendering speed of such a light group is much faster than the sky shadow, and the effect is also good. Rendering The rendering was made using the default Arnold renderer of 3ds Max, and then layered rendering was used, and then composited and adjusted in Photoshop. Firstly, each part is rendered in colors. For post-processing in Photoshop, the advantage of layering is that it is easy to control the effect of each component and the effect of depth of field. 1. Simply put the components together first, and choose a starry sky picture for the background. 2. Add some glow effects to the magic circle. It is best to feather the magic circle and fill it with some fading blue to get an effect similar to the edge glow. 3. Add some glow effects to the metal parts, the production steps are similar to the magic circle effect. If it is not obvious enough, we can copy a few more layers of the boost effect. 4. Add some magic effects to the entire screen to enhance the overall atmosphere. Here I am using a set of Photoshop brushes. This brush is very practical and can easily draw all kinds of magic effects. 5. After adding magic visual effects, we can see that the overall picture looks cooler. The details are as follows,

Low Poly Most people are used to using ZBrush to make high poly and then topological low poly, but I think this method of making is more convenient for making monsters. For characters, I like to use high poly to make low poly through plug-ins or use the topology plug-in in 3ds Max to simply adjust the low poly. In the production, we considered that there might be facial close-ups in the later stage, so we used a lot of faces in the production. The production of hair is also very simple, we need to plan the trend of the hair in advance. Considering that there may be a need for facial close-ups in the later stage, a lot of faces are concentrated on the head. When making hair, we need to pay attention to the trend of the hair. We can roughly divide the hair into several groups, and then make a model according to the trend of the hair. In addition, the layering of the hair should be taken into consideration. In the picture below, I marked the grouping area of the hair with red lines. If the number of faces allows, the obvious and large patterns can be made directly using the model. The pattern made by the model will look richer when viewed from other angles, and the effect of lighting can be better received in post-rendering. Use UVS to allocate and optimize normals Next, I will introduce the UV part. In fact, which is relatively simple. What needs attention is the position of the UV seams in case of some obvious seams. At the same time, avoiding obvious UV seams in some joints is important. Trying to hide the UV seams will greatly improve work efficiency. Let me share with you a little experience of using UV allocation to optimize normal maps. The following two pictures are the same model, both using 256-size textures. If the textures are smaller, the comparison will be more obvious. They have the same model, but the edges look different. It is obvious that the normal and angle of the left picture is better. The UVs corresponding to the left and right images are as follows. It can be clearly seen that the splitting methods of the two UVs are completely different. The method is to try to cut the UVs of the sides whose angles are greater than or equal to 90 degrees on the model. The example in the figure below uses basically all edges of the cube with an angle greater than or equal to 90 degrees, so basically, the UVs on all sides are cut. In fact, cutting methods are different for different models. The advantage of this method is that each group of faces is a relatively independent UV, and the normal map of the edge chamfer can be better calculated in the normal generation. Although this will cause some trouble in texture drawing, it is still great for some mechanical models such as normal effects. The last is the baking stage. The XNormal selected for baking feels that this software is very easy to use for some machines with low configuration, and it will not be limited by the number of high poly faces. Normal computers can bake High poly with a surface of 150-200W, but xNormal does not have the same baking effect for AO textures as AO textures baked by MR or Maya. Each software has its own advantages. It’s vital to choose the right software to make the right thing. Texturing Let me introduce the texturing process I am used to. 1. Firstly, spread the colors of each part, and draw some highlights on the metal parts. 2. Overlay AO textures. Sometimes the rendered AO texture is not very obvious after one layer is superimposed. At this time, we can consider overlaying two layers of AO textures. The overlay method is generally multiplied. 3. Superimpose the texture of the material and add shadows in some details, such as metal edges or overlapping objects. After adding some detailed shadows, we can feel that the three-dimensional sense of the texture has increased significantly. It can be seen that the comparison in the figure below is obvious. The final effect is as follows. 4. When making a transparent channel, this step is very simple if the layers are divided well in the early stage. The places that need attention are hair and eyelashes. Also, the edges of the transparency map need to be very clear. There are some brushes in Photoshop to draw the transparent channel of hair and eyelashes very well, with very sharp edges.
