Inspired by Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Korean artist use Blender to create exclusive cabins

Animal-Crossing-New-Horizons

As soon as Nintendo Switch launches Animal Crossing: New Horizons, it has been loved by game fans all over the world. Due to the epidemic, many people can enjoy traveling abroad through games during quarantine, which makes the Switch a hit again. And many CG artists eager to create many fan art or amazing creations. Korean designer Seungho Jeong (Neon3D) was invited to talk about his latest work "Miniature style cute character 3d artwork" (Soondol) and talk about the toy model made for the animation of "Molang".

Seungho Jeong, from South Korea, is good at product design and 3D printing. Most of them are created in Fusion360 and Blender. He is currently designing toy models for "Molang". He also runs a YouTube channel to share the process behind the scenes.

Tell us about the artwork.

Seungho Jeong: Recently I was playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and I was attracted by the cute graphic style in the game, so I proposed a series of creative projects, with my original character "Soon-dol" as the main character, and designed a series of The miniature style house in Mori.

I use Cycle render in Blender to create. It is worth mentioning that instead of using texture mapping, I changed the color of the object or made some images using Illustrator, and used Blender's Shrinkwrap modifier to place the image on the character's face. The most difficult part of this work is the lighting effect. After all, to create "emits natural light from the outside of the window" is a test of the creator's Lighting skills. At first, I put a glass on the window, but then I found that no glass looks more natural, so I had to take it away.

What is your usual job?

Seungho Jeong: Mainly making character toy models. For example, the "Molang" series is currently on sale. I designed many different sets of costumes for the character, including Halloween, New Year, Hanbok and other styles. The main creative process is the use of product design software Fusion 360. It has a free-form modeling function, similar to Blender's modeling method.

I also made an introduction video for the company's YouTube channel "Behind Molang". First, I redesigned all 2D characters into 3D. Since our company is not an animation studio but a character commodity company, most of the 3D creation process of characters is the process of making plastic models, such as Fusion 360 (some are designed directly in Blender). When creating images in 3D, as mentioned above, instead of using texture mapping, we change the color of the object or use Illustrator to create the image, which is created in accordance with the process of making dolls and doll models.

Is animation different from product design?

Seungho Jeong: Making animation is very difficult, after all, that is not my major. Although product production and animation look very similar, there are still some system differences. Therefore, I have to learn by myself and complete the animation creation, so I simplified the character movement as much as possible.

Can you share your creative tips?

Seungho Jeong: If you want to create on a hard surface, Fusion 360 is recommended, which can be modeled for the accuracy of the size, which is very convenient. In addition, the ShrinkWrap modifier is used to attach the image to Blender without any texture drawing.

Who is your Favorite artist?

Seungho Jeong: Absolutely my boss Hye-Ji Yoon, he is the character designer of "Molang". And Molang's animation is currently being played on Netflix, which is receiving the attention of the global audience! I respect my boss very much and want to be a well-known creator like him.

How To Create An Old Camera In Blender?
How To Create An Old Camera In Blender?
The best cloud rendering services provider and GPU & CPU render farm, Fox Renderfarm will share with you a Blender tutorial.This article shows you how to create an old camera in blender. The production process refers to an article by a Christian Wachter artist and introduces some new processes and complements the production techniques. 1. ModelingLensThe camera lens is a curved surface, but the arc surface created by the latitude and longitude ball will cause errors after subdivision because of the triangular surface. The more scientific method is to use a box, first add a subdivision modify and re-cast, and then scale an axis to get a lens arc surface with perfect topology. Complex PartsFor parts with complex structures and small parts, they are generally not subdivided, and it is enough to simply chamfer them with high precision. In order to save computer resources and processes, these finely divided parts can only be chamfered with high precision. 2. UVHere are some of the next-generation game production processes, such as multiple objects sharing a set of UVs. In this way, whether you export the model to the third-party software to make the texture, or after the texture is created, import the blender and manage the texture material in the blender. 3. TextureThe texture is selected to use the substance painter. When drawing the edge wear, in addition to using the SP's own program texture, some more serious wear is manually drawn in the sharp part of the model, and the gradient wear of the gear adjustment knob is defined. 4. Material What is worth noting in the material is that because the camera lens has an anti-reflection coating, the reflection of the lens is blue-violet. The top half of the picture as below.In Blender, I tried to simulate a dispersive material using the red, green, and blue color overlays, but the effect was unsatisfactory and the rendering points were extremely large. As shown in the lower part of the figure below.Finally, use a Fresnel as the basis of the gradient, change it to a blue cyan gradient, and mix it on the surface of the gloss to simulate the material of the camera lens. 5. SynthesisAfter De focus rendering is complete, select to blend in Blender, as shown in the two images below, and change the gradient on the Z channel to control the post-defocus effect. One makes the rear part of the camera slightly out of focus, and one makes the floor behind the camera seriously blurred out focus. 6. Deformation and HueFinally, add a little lens distortion to it, and use the color balance node to give it some stylized color. Fox Renderfarm hopes it will be of some help to you. It is well known that Fox Renderfarm is an excellent cloud rendering services provider in the CG world, so if you need to find a Blender render farm, why not try Fox Renderfarm, which is offering a free $25 trial for new users?
