3ds Max Tutorials: Create God Of War Stylized 3D Characters(1)

3ds Max Tutorials Create God Of War Stylized 3D Characters

This is the production process of Kratos, the protagonist of God Of War, using 3ds Max and ZBrush to produce style 3D characters. This process includes the production process from reference, carving, and texture. The software used this time includes 3ds Max, ZBrush, Photoshop, etc. This 3ds Max tutorial is organized by the CG industry's leading cloud render farm, Fox Renderfarm, and I hope you can learn something useful from it.

References

First, collect reference pictures related to God Of War from the Internet. This link is very important. It is necessary to collect as many references as possible to obtain various angles of the character, facial expressions, deplaning structure, texture, lighting, etc. information.

Blocking the main forms

First, refer to the data in the picture in 3ds Max to create a blocking human model in the form of "A", and then import it into ZBrush to adjust the overall scale and sculpt. For the engraving work later, it is necessary to keep the number of faces reasonable when making in 3ds Max.

ZBrush

After importing the model into ZBrush, you can start sculpting the head model. This process is very challenging and the most difficult part. After sculpting the basic large-scale and muscular structure parts, the next step is to sculpt more detailed parts, such as scars, wrinkles, etc. The body parts must follow the principle of deplaning. Some basic brushes are used for head carving. Of course, you can also use the brushes you are accustomed to, as long as you can use them skillfully.

The wrinkles use a homemade Alpha brush, which is very easy to use. The method of making a self-made brush is also very simple, using black and white pictures, black is transparent and can be stored in PSD format.

The following picture shows the effect of each brush used on the model. Each brush and Alpha brush will have different effects when used together. It is recommended to try to use different brushes and Alpha in combination, there may be unexpected Surprises.

This project is in a hurry, so the details in some places are not very good. If time is free, there are still many places that can be modified better. The process of making is also a process of learning. Only by constantly applying what you have learned to the projects you can make better use of it.

Accessories

The parts on the body are made in 3ds Max, and then imported into ZBrush for sculpting, especially the chain part is also placed in 3ds Max first, and then sculpted.

Equipment carving

The following is the subdivision and sculpting of Krato’s shoulder pads. Almost all the details are sculpted in ZBrush. Draw the mask first, then make the shape and sculpt the details.

The other parts of the equipment use the same production method. Carving is a tedious and time-consuming process. Every link must be careful and pay attention to details. It needs to be revised and iterated many times.

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)
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.
