How to Create a Stylized Cheongsam Girl in ZBrush and 3ds Max(1)

How to Create a Stylized Cheongsam Girl in ZBrush and 3ds Max - 12

How to create a stylized Cheongsam girl in ZBrush and 3ds Max? In this article, the best cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm will share with you the tutorial.

Hi, everybody, I'm Wai, a character artist. I like character production very much and constantly improve my production standards. Today I'm going to show you the process of using ZBrush and 3ds MAX to create a Stylized Cheongsam Girl. This process includes looking for references, modelling, etc...

Introduction

I've always been fascinated by character making, so I'm constantly looking for the right concepts to practice. After watching a lot of work, I chose one of them and set the whole production time at four weeks. Then I followed the concept to look for more references, which helped me save time on repeated revisions.

1. Preparation

The stylized character of this production is Cheongsam girl, who is a beautiful Oriental female character with slender limbs, smooth outline curve. Then I collected references of the character and found a similar style of character model to modify.

2. Face making

The beautiful character pays attention to smoothness, the face should pay attention to flat, clean, and should pay attention to multi-angle observation at any time.

3. Accessories production

Accessories should be made in line with the concept and its structure. There should be some big things to attract people's attention, and some small things to play a decorative role.

4. Fold

The lines of clothing wrinkles should be smooth and natural. It’s vital to pay attention to gradual change, depth, layers and give consideration to the rationality between the textures to avoid having a separate wrinkle texture, which will look very strange.

References

This stylized character itself has a sense of the East, the concept map is a more slender feeling, but I hope she can be more weak, so in the early and middle of the production to look for a large number of these two styles of reference map, for improving the production efficiency.

A suitable base model is the basis of the sculpture model, which can greatly improve work efficiency. The following figure shows the base model I chose, which is suitable for modifying to any other style.

Because the facial lines of this model are more in line with my production requirements, so in the stage of adjusting the body proportion, I choose not to modify the facial structure first. When adjusting the body shape, I should pay attention to blurring the mask edge, so that the transition part will not be too abrupt, and maintain the smoothness of the lines. And in making clothes, I used four methods:

  1. The collar part with a close-fitting and small area is made with TopoGun 3, so as to ensure that the lines of the clothes meet my requirements and conform to the curve of the character's body model. Some parts that need to leave the body are led into ZBrush for fine adjustment.

  2. For the close-fitting and large-area silk stockings, I used the ZBrush extraction mask and the extraction surface function to create the silk stockings, which can keep the shape completely fit with the legs.

  1. The rest of the clothes are made using Marvelous Designer. After obtaining a desired shape and fold, the two-dimensional model (UV) and the three-dimensional model of the cloth are respectively painted. The two-dimensional model is imported into ZBrush to obtain a square wiring cloth sheet with Zremesher, and then a three-dimensional clothing model with square wiring and good appearance is obtained with Maya's transfer function, which lays a good foundation for importing hair to carve.

  1. The clothes made this time are Cheongsam. It is made of silk and has a very light and thin texture. However, in order to add texture to the clothes, I still have to make a layer of edging for the clothes. Because the edging line needs to fit the outline of the garment as perfectly as possible, I chose the line to use the function of extracting lines in 3ds Max, and then use the spline base polygon to get an ideal edging line.

I think you always search for a free render farm for Cinema 4d, Maya, 3ds Max, but you will find that a completely free render farm does not exist, to be honest, most of the platforms needs to charge due to the reasons below.1. Hardware costThe bigger the render farm network, the quicker the rendering speed. According to the top render farm companies such as FoxRenderfarm, they have over 30,000 physical servers, you can calculate the hardware cost.2. Maintaining CostNeed to rent a room in the data centre to place all of the rendering nodes. It would also be a large expense every year.3. Human Resource CostNeed a lot of specialists in customer service, technical support, research &x26; development, marketing.However, you can find out which render farm is the cheaper one, at the same time, you can get a free trial from the render farm.

Get Started on Game Modeling with 3ds Max Modeling Tips
The reason why 3D is called "3D" is because it takes a 2D profile of an object and extrudes it along a certain path, forming complex 3D objects. Different shapes can be applied to different segments along the same path. This transformation path is called loft modeling. Today, Fox Renderfarm, as a leading cloud rendering service provider and render farm in the industry, will introduce the basic modeling techniques 3ds Max loft modeling to you.Lattice ModelingMaya's powerful lattice modeling tool is incredibly powerful but often overlooked by beginners. The lattice allows you to efficiently make overall changes to high-resolution models, avoiding the tedious task of manipulating hundreds or thousands of edges and vertices individually.Despite being a powerful tool, lattice modeling is often missed by beginners, partly because it is located under the Animation tab rather than the Polygon Modeling tab in Maya's interface.Image from Internet, copyright of the original authorSoft SelectionAre you tired of moving each vertex individually?Just like the lattice modeling, the soft selection feature allows you to efficiently modify a region of a model by setting a controllable falloff radius for each vertex, edge, or face. In other words, when soft selection is enabled, selecting a vertex and translating it in space will also affect the surrounding vertices (the degree of influence is determined by the falloff radius you have set).Soft selection is particularly useful for modeling organic objects such as skeletons, muscles, and faces. It helps you achieve smoother transitions and deformations between different parts of the model.Image from Internet, copyright of the original authorThe Duplicate SpecialHave you ever been frustrated while modeling objects with regularly spaced elements, like fences? The Duplicate Special feature allows you to create multiple copies of an object and translate, rotate, or scale each instance individually.For example, let's say you need to model a Greek pillar with a series of regularly spaced relief units encircling its surface. In this case, after creating a single relief unit, you can find the central axis of the cylinder and use the duplicate special feature to evenly distribute and replicate each relief unit, making it easy to complete the modeling process.Image from Internet, copyright of the original authorThe Relax BrushBeginners often tend to end the modeling of organic models with a "blocky" appearance. Although Maya does not have a complete set of sculpting tools, it does have some basic sculpting brushes, with the most useful one being the Relax Brush tool.The Relax brush will average out the spacing between the vertices you brush over, resulting in a smoother surface without compromising the model's overall shape. If you are modeling a facial model, for example, you can use the Relax brush to make the blocky face appear more like a smooth skin surface.Find mesh tool under the polygons menu, then sculpt geometry tool, click on the little square behind this option, and find sculpt parameter under properties, locate relax brush, and then go back to the 3D view and brush the vertices you want to smooth.Alternatively, you can select the object you are currently modeling, hold down the right mouse button until a menu appears, and then choose Paint -> Sculpt. In the Sculpt Parameters, select the Relax Brush. You can also modify the brush radius and strength in the brush options tab to control the brush effect.Image from Internet, copyright of the original authorSelection SetsHave you ever had this experience: After spending a long time carefully selecting complex faces, edges, and vertices, and performing a series of operations, you unselect them to start working on something else. Then you realize that you need to make further adjustments to the large area you originally selected, but you have already canceled your previous selection. Now you have to go through the frustration of manually clicking and selecting points, edges, and faces again.Actually, this can be avoided. Maya allows you to save selection sets so that you can quickly and easily activate them later on.If you find yourself repeatedly selecting the same points, edges, or faces, or if you have just spent a lot of time selecting a large area and suspect that you may need to select that area again in the future, use the Command Selection Sets to save it.Select the desired points, edges, or faces, then go to Create -> Quick Select Sets. Name the set and click "OK." (If you want to find it on the toolbar later, click "Add to Shelf"). To quickly select this area in the future, simply go to Edit -> Quick Select Sets and locate your named selection set in the list.Interact with Others MoreMany beginners often overlook this step and rely solely on hard work. While professionals in the workplace can easily communicate with colleagues in the industry, it can be more challenging for beginners.Beginners can exchange experiences with classmates who are learning together, or engage with unfamiliar peers on social platforms and other forums.Regardless of the approach, it is always beneficial to look at other people's work. Hopefully, with the guidance of these tips, everyone can achieve great success.If you have problems with slow 3ds Max rendering on your own computer, you can use a 3ds Max render farm that offer fast cloud rendering service to speed up your 3ds Max rendering and meet your project's delivery date.Source: aliyun

3ds Max Cloud Rendering Tutorials and Render Farm Recommendations
3ds Max Cloud Rendering Tutorials and Render Farm Recommendations
3ds Max is a 3D professional modeling software, animation and rendering application builder, formerly 3D Studio and 3D Studio Max, used to create 3D animations, models, interactive games and visual effects for the entertainment industry. 3Ds Max plays a big role in designing the 2D cross-sectional shapes of 3D models. It can bring characters to life by using a special feature called inverse kinematics that can connect the different components of a character together. So whether you are an architect, a product designer or an illustrator, using 3ds Max to create your projects is a good choice for you. The 3D models are usually converted to CGI through a rendering process.We see a lot of beautiful results after the project is rendered. But rendering in 3ds Max can sometimes take a long time and it doesn't have much to do with your system itself when it comes to rendering. Long rendering times can be affected by many factors, so for creators who use 3ds Max as their primary tool, speeding up 3ds Max rendering times is a huge relief.3ds Max cloud rendering is a useful way to speed up rendering. Many people have only heard of cloud rendering but don't know what it is or how to do it. In fact, cloud rendering, a cloud service that relies on cloud computing, can also be called an online render farm. Fox Renderfarm is a powerful 3ds Max cloud rendering farm, with tens of thousands of rendering machines supporting CPU and GPU rendering, serving over 200,000 users around the world. The following is the tutorials of 3ds Max cloud rendering at Fox Renderfarm.Tutorials for Using 3ds Max Cloud Rendering3ds Max Cloud Rendering Web Submit TutorialStep 1.
