3ds Max Tutorials: CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

There are lots of flowers in Japan that are in the darkest seasons. The iris flower, which is the motif of this work, has a very excellent silhouette in terms of design. At first glance, it looks complicated, but the three petals are in perfect balance.

Method 1: Boy's Festival

Since we have made “carp streamers” and “helmets” as motifs that represent the “Dano Festival” that is an event in May, we chose “iris” which is the seasonal flower this time. I thought of "May dolls", but I wanted to create a more mature image. By the way, there was a flower that was displayed with the May doll, what kind of flower was it? Although it is a memory that is not clear, when you actually see it, it reminds you "Oh, yes." Iris, iris, oysters. These are seasonal flowers that represent Japan, but at first glance, they all looked the same and were indistinguishable. However, the flow of petals and veins of leaves is so beautiful that it makes me think about the transmission of life. Is it possible to replace these organic designs with functional and mathematical expanses with inorganic designs?

Method 2: Until you are satisfied

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

▲ Now I can easily draw rough sketches with various software, and recently I'm used to sketching in 3ds Max.

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

Even if I say ▲, just changing the tool is no different from the conventional sketch on paper, and I will sketch a lot until I am satisfied.

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

▲ The advantage of 3d Max sketch is that you can combine analog hand-drawing and procedural methods in various ways.

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

▲We will create the prototype of the petal parts while considering the flow.

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

▲It is a model of petals that is the base. This isn't really used, but it's the basis.

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

▲The basic iris flower is "every three". Check the balance with the layout of the three petals.

Method 3: Creating scenes that leverage the strengths of generalists

1: Seasoning factor

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

▲I will give each petal a practiced line.

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

▲The lines are similarly applied to the leaves and stems to create a cohesive work as a whole.

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

▲ As a slight flavoring element, we add granular particles to the veins to add variation to the texture.

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

▲ The design of different complicated veins is included to the extent that it remains slightly visible.

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

▲The elements that are added little by little increase the overall balance and perfection.

2: Composite for softness

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

▲ The rendering lighting was intentionally darkened. This is because these light shades are easy to blow out.

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

▲ Add subtle reflective materials to improve the details.

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

▲Combines flares for a softer overall look.

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

▲ This time I rendered in 8K. Delicate lines and grain expressions are very effective at 8K size.

3ds Max Tutorials CG Production Process of The Iris Flower

▲ The final layout was shortened to 4K and trimmed.

How to Make a Sci-fi Spaceship with 3ds Max(2)
How to Make a Sci-fi Spaceship with 3ds Max(2)
Your private cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm, is still sharing with you the production of how to make a Sci-fi spaceship with 3ds max. Rendering The background production directly used a previous project and made some modifications according to the reference diagram. The lighting adopts the sunlight and skylight of V-Ray. When rendering, the spaceship and the background are rendered in layers, and the background does not require too high parameter settings. The final rendering of the background, The sky in the background is not directly rendered, but a sky map is directly synthesized in Photoshop. What needs attention is the color of the water surface. If the sky is blue, then the water, buildings, and especially the reflection-sensitive things in the scene must be changed to blue. After background synthesis, The last is the rendering and post-production of the main spaceship. The rendering settings of the spaceship are the same as those of the background. Several important points to note are, First of all, the material of the spaceship is a reflective material similar to car paint, so the layout of the environment is to better reflect the texture of the car paint. When I tried to render the car paint in the initial stage, it felt very fake, without texture, and the actual material is not necessarily the material. It is not adjusted properly, but it just ignores the influence of the environment on the reflective material. At the bottom of the spaceship, I made a "plate" whose function is to give a darker reflection to the bottom of the spaceship to achieve the effect of the virtual ground. The key point is to pay attention to the height, and remember not to exceed half of the spaceship. The final rendering effect, It can be seen that the background and the spaceship are too integrated. Next, I used a few basic tools to adjust the color of the entire scene. After adjusting the color, it can be seen that the sky contrast has been strengthened and the overall tone has been unified. Finally, add some small details: add lights.

How to Make a Sci-fi Spaceship with 3ds Max(1)
Your private cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm, is sharing an article for you this time on how to make a fish-shaped spaceship with 3ds max. Introduction This work is inspired by spoons. One day, I saw the spoons when I was eating in the restaurant, I suddenly felt that the spoons turned upside down looked like some kind of fish, and some of them looked like a science fiction-style spaceship. Suddenly I wanted to make this inspiration into a spaceship that can travel in the sky and water. Modeling After returning home, I spent one night combining some handsome sea creatures, such as whales, sharks, etc. and drew this manuscript with a pencil. Later, I thought the shape looked good, and finally decided to make it into a model with 3ds Max. The next step is more challenging for me because it is very challenging to make a 2D concept map into a 3D model. In particular, the 2D concept map will only serve as a reference work, while other angles and details need to be found from references and other materials. The road to spaceship design has just begun. In the production, I constantly modify the details, such as changing the original single tail to a double tail. I also tried to add a co-pilot position next to the tail, but after adding it, it felt unreasonable. Later, the cockpit was changed to a jet engine compartment. Two red fuel tanks were added on both sides of the tail (although some people say they are like batteries)! All models are not very difficult, but they are constantly adjusting their shapes during the production process. But this may have something to do with the person who made it, and I like it very much from the angle in the picture below, the eyes look very imposing. Because I have previous experience in industrial design, the design of the spaceship engine is not too difficult for me. The final model is completed! As long as the overall shape and parts are reasonable, well, the overall shape looks streamlined and comfortable. Texturing When designing the concept map, I have already considered the material of the spaceship. First of all, the main body of the ship is made of car paint, which is very common in industrial styling, and it is not very difficult to make. The texture of the spaceship mainly uses the standard material of V-Ray, and then some blending. This part is mainly to add different materials and textures to the 1 and 2 masks in the mixed material. The important point is that the "Falloff" map is used in the mask, and the default color sorting of attenuation is white on black. Here you should use the invert button to reverse it and turn it into black on white. 1.The setting of "Material 1" is relatively simple. It is the color displayed in the dark part after the "Attenuation" mask, so the color is black (or a dark color in a certain color system, which is close to black). "Diffuse" is pure black and "Reflection" is pure white, which means 100% complete reflection. Pay attention to check Fresnel reflection. Keep the refraction options as default. 2." Material 2" is relatively complicated. The reason for saying this is because the material in Material 2 is the "Shellac" material. You should know that its function is to change the color, highlight, and Reflection of "Base Material" and “Shellac Material”, and mixed them by the value of "Shellac Color Blend". In fact, the settings of the two materials are almost the same, but it should be noted that the diffuse color of "Shellac Material" is the color of the car paint. For example, if you want the model to be yellow, then change it to yellow here. And the diffuse black of "Base Material" is an attenuation color, so that the material can richly reflect the contrast of different angles.
