3ds Max Tutorial of Chang’e, the Chinese Goddess of The Moon (2)

3D Modelling Tutorial of Chang e

This time, your TPN-Accredited cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm brings you a share from the 3D artist CGWang. We hope that it can help you in 3ds Max learning from this production, and get inspiration from this artwork.

Introduction

This work is inspired by a myth in ancient China, telling the story of Chang'e who lives on the moon. In order to highlight this story, the center of the vision is made into a circular moon, and a crescent moon and osmanthus trees are used to form a circle. With a full crescent moon and a figure running towards the moon from a distance, you can see a cyclist running towards the moon when you look up close, and the little rabbit in the car is not only her partner but also illuminates the shadow with a lamp that gives directions.

Modeling

The model was made in ZBrush. Based on a body model from the previous project, some modifications were made on this model. After the model is made, I will not make clothes, but use ZBrush tools to take a picture of the POSE. The pose requires attention to the coordination of the body and limbs to make the character's pose look natural and comfortable.

Composition

After the character's body was made, some other important objects were added to the scene, such as the addition of a bicycle that used a model from the previous project, the waning moon, and the osmanthus tree. These objects form a circle in the center of the vision, and this circle constitutes an important structure in the work. In this step, there is no need to consider the details of those objects, as long as the overall shape is intact.

Clothing

After the composition is complete, you can add some details to the character. The production here can start with the costume. Because the protagonist is a legendary character in ancient times, her dress skirt is very long, and she also has some streamers similar to a cloak. Firstly make the shape of the clothes in 3ds Max, and then import it into ZBrush to use some plug-ins to sculpt the folds of the cloth.

Now that there are not many elements in the scene, you can continue to refine the scene and add other objects. Because only Chang'e lived on the moon, it was deserted. The palace where Chang'e lived was on the moon, so the moon and the palace were blended together during the production. For the balance of the scene, a small resting pavilion was made and placed on one end of the moon.

When the character was finished, the bicycle basket was a bit empty, so I added a bunny to the basket and made the bunny to carry a light to show Chang'e the way. Then it is time to modify some details, such as thinning the hair and adding headwear to the character, adjusting the details of the clothes, and giving some details and some leaves to the trunk. The bottom part is some clouds floating in the air as decoration.

Rendering

All models have been finished, but some adjustments are needed after stitching together. One of the most important points is to pay attention to some proportions and perspectives of the character and the scene, and then choose the best frame to render.

RAYVISION Offers Its Clients a Variety of Pricing Options Along With a Free Trial
The cloud rendering services previously known as Fox Renderfarm, have rebranded themselves as RayVision. They now offer their clients a variety of suitable and affordable pricing options along with a free trial.Their pricing system has been called “remarkably accurate” by clients; and studios find it easier to trust them with their graphics because never charge for unsuccessful jobs. The website itself has a “Calculate Your Cost” section, which allows clients to calculate their prices by entering their rendering time per frame, the number of frames and the unit price. This transparency in pricing has made it easier for them to build a reputation and ensure a good customer base.Their pricing is divided into three categories to make the whole process easier for the clients. A VIP customer is charged $0.57 per node, per hour. Gold customers are charged $1.03 per hour, and ordinary customers are charged $1.36 per hour. The company personally claims that their charge is accurate up to seconds. Furthermore, for rendering film class projects; it offers further discounts, the details of which are available on the website.Image and video rendering projects generally require a high level of accuracy, and the quality expectations of the client are also quite high. Ray Vision aims to address this concern by allowing the clients to assess their services through a free trial. This makes it much easier for the clients to understand if their expectations will be met.A spokesperson for the company was reported to have said, “Our company has an exceptionally client centric approach. We view each of our customers as individuals and we make sure that their expectations are met. We understand that they are the most important part of our business and make sure that they are satisfied, in terms of price, quality and customer services.” About the Company: Rayvision was formed in 2010, and was the first company to offer a cloud rendering platform to customers. In fact, the company is known to have pioneered “self service cloud rendering”. The internet technology company specializes in cluster rendering, parallel computing technology, and provides the computing services needed for cloud rendering. Some of the company’s reputable customers include DreamWorks, SKG, Magic, and American Industrial Light.

In this tutorial, Fox Renderfarm, your TPN-Accredited cloud rendering service provider and render farm, will bring a set of vehicle model making skills. This article mainly explains how to use 3ds Max and Zbrush to make high-precision models for motorcycle tire patterns and wheels to help you improve the quality and efficiency of the vehicle model. High Poly Effect!3ds Max - Tire 1!3ds Max - Tire 2The overall process of the case:This case is a series of motorcycle production tutorials. In this tutorial, only the high poly parts of the tires and wheels are included. The outline of this tutorial is as follows: Outline1. preliminary preparation in 3ds Max and mid poly manufacturing of tire2. Introduction and installation of the plug-in Radial Symmetry3. Production of tire patterns and brake pads4. Boolean operation tire pattern in Zbrush Production process Preparation!3ds Max - Tire 31. Collect reference pictures;!3ds Max - Tire 42. Create a 1:1 background board of reference picture in 3ds Max, and put the center point of the tire on the origin (0.0.0), which is convenient for model symmetry;!3ds Max - Tire 5!3ds Max - Tire 63. Start to build the mid poly of the tire base. The production starts from the basic ring, adjust the inner and outer radius of the ring and the appropriate number of segments (Segments: 36, Sides16);!3ds Max - Tire 74. Process decomposition:Trous \ Edit poly \ Symmetry \ Edit poly card line \ Turbo smooth 2!3ds Max - Tire 7-15. The final effect3ds Max Plug-in, Radial Symmetry!3ds Max - Tire 8- Introduction: Radial Symmetry is a 3ds MAX modifier plug-in, which can do circular symmetry replication effect, make circular model symmetry, and the quantity adjustment is very convenient; - Installation instructions:(A) Close 3ds MAX(B) Copy the corresponding version of RadialSymmetry.dlm to the plug-in folder of 3ds Max. The default example is C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max xxxx\plugins(C) Open 3ds MAX, you can see Radial Symmetry in the modifier list- Functions: (A) Radial Axis: XYZ rotation axis, this function is very important, most of the effects are adjusted here;(B) Radial Count: Number of copies(C) Smooth Seams: smooth seams(D) Quad Seams: Four-sided seams, less used(E) Mirror: double mirror- Production of tire patterns, wheels and brake padsA. Tire 1 pattern!3ds Max - Tire 91. Use the topology tool to draw the pattern model, pick the tire high poly , use the Strips tool to draw the model based on the surface; the pattern is based on the reference picture;!3ds Max - Tire 102. Draw pattern graphics \ shell \ pull \ symmetry \ turbo smooth \ ring symmetry;3. Circular symmetry: z-axis direction, Radial count: 10 pieces.B. Tire 2 pattern!3ds Max - Tire 111. Extract two models from the tire model and edit to the shape above;2.
