Model placement

After the low model is completed, place it according to the set camera angle in the entire scene. The position and size of the model need to be exactly the same as the original image. After the placement, the ID is separated according to the material. Note that the name of the material needs to be the same as the name of the model. Then add a shader, and finally export the scene resources to Substance Painter to make textures.


Before making the texture, we need to make all the UVS of the low mode well. Note that the accuracy of the UV needs to be consistent with the whole scene. After dividing the UVS, match it with the high-poly to make the two models completely overlap and bake the normal, And then open the exported model resources in Substance Painter, and bake the remaining textures in Substance Painter.

It should be noted that the texture of the house needs to be made with seamless textures, while the billboard UVS needs to be done in Substance Painter for the content and colors of the advertisement, and then mapped to the model.

Let's share the basic process of material with the shark head.

  1. For the production of basic colors, the shark head is divided into several parts, eyes, teeth, black part, and white part of the shark head, as well as the tongue, gums, and oral cavity.
  2. Create different layers and give black masks, and use the UVS fill in the geometry fill to select the range. It should be noted here that when the model is made and when the UVS is split, it is necessary to think about the wiring between different materials on the same object in advance. When making shark heads, there is the wiring between different materials, so that we can cut along the line when we develop UVS. And we can choose the range while making the material. We can also add a brush tool to draw after using the mask, select the range or make the ID map in 3ds Max, and select the color in Substance Painter. Specific materials are selected according to different models and materials.

In the basic step, not only the color, roughness, and metallicity of the model shall be adjusted, but also filters, color levels, etc. shall be added to the background color according to the material of the object to enhance the texture of the object. Use some procedural textures or masks, combined with brushes to draw dirty marks. Carry out some detailed descriptions, through procedural textures, generators, etc., to increase some surface details such as scratches, damage, stains, dust, etc., which can be adjusted by adding a brush.

Due to a large number of scene props, the workload is heavy. The Marmoset toolbag was used for test rendering at the beginning, but the effect was not very good, and the screen display was slightly shiny and rendered. There is also a certain difference between the atmosphere of the whole scene and the original painting. Finally, the V-ray renderer is used, and the still frame rendering scheme is adopted, which can improve the rendering quality of the scene.

After learning some basic rendering operations of V-ray, I decided to rearrange some parts.

  1. Texture: Due to the difference between the V-ray texture process and Substance Painter's PBR scene channel, it was tested many times in the early stage, and finally the texture was mapped to the correct path one by one.

Lighting: V-Ray has a rich variety of lighting. The main light source I use is V-Ray Sun, and there are some auxiliary light sources, area lights, and point lights. I encountered many problems when adjusting the light, such as choosing the type of light, controlling the intensity of the light, and the placement of the position. The most important thing is to gradually test the effect of the shadow.

Texturing effect:

Environment fog: The environment fog is a difficult problem in the scene. The environment fog is arranged in the last step before rendering. The parameters are also very complicated. After debugging for a long time, I also asked the teacher some questions, and finally found that the main thing is to adjust the height of the fog. The three parameters of distance and color are arranged to have an effect similar to the original painting.

How to create a stylized Cheongsam girl in ZBrush and 3ds Max? In this article, the best render farm and cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm will share with you the tutorial. For part one:How to Create a Stylized Cheongsam Girl in ZBrush and 3ds Max(1) High polygon model/face/hair/clothing wrinkles When you've carved to a certain extent, you're going to ZBrush to make a high-polygon model. First of all, I add a new hem to the model that needs to be added with subdivision carving. Most of the automatic hem of ZBrush can already meet our manufacturing requirements. If there is some dissatisfaction, it can also be matched with part of the edge ring hem of ZModeler.When carving wrinkles, I usually turn on the Lazy mouse function, which can make the carved lines more smooth, avoid intermittent lines, make the cloth look cleaner and more beautiful, and can also be matched with some Alpha brushes, so that the wrinkles are more detailed and richer.!How to Create a Stylized Cheongsam Girl in ZBrush and 3ds MaxWhen making hair, it is recommended to use simple geometry first, with the SnakeHook brush to quickly make the outline of the hair, for the subsequent hair production to provide a good basis. When using the SnakeHook brush, you can also turn on Sculptris Pro mode in conjunction with it, so that there is no obvious distortion in some places where there is a large change. !How to Create a Stylized Cheongsam Girl in ZBrush and 3ds MaxAfter adjusting the simple outline, you can use the hairbrush to brush the hair out in clusters. Before brushing the hair, make sure that curve mode is turned on, lock the starting point, and then it takes a lot of patience. Of course, the best way is to observe how the real person's hair twists so that the hair will naturally look good. Details need to pay attention to the scalp coverage and to avoid some places "bald" off. In this case, the hair production is not close to the tangent of the scalp, but first grows up, and then falls down. Paying attention to these details, the hair will naturally look good.Finally, we use the "Automatic grouping" in the "Polygon group" to get rich, well-rooted hair, and then use the Move Topological brush to pull out some of the hair and make small broken hair floating outside to make the hairstyle look more vivid and flexible. It should be noted here that the hair pulled out should still float away according to the direction of the overall hairstyle, do not let the separation distance or angle be too large, otherwise, it looks easy to fake or not natural enough.!How to Create a Stylized Cheongsam Girl in ZBrush and 3ds Max RenderingSo far I've only made models, not added materials. In this case, Keyshots are generally used for rendering, because the model without materials rendered by Keyshots will look more delicate and have a good light and shadow effect. Normally, I will first set a warm light main light source from 45° down from the upper left, and then match a cold light auxiliary light source from the back to the front from the right, so that the structure is more vivid.!How to Create a Stylized Cheongsam Girl in ZBrush and 3ds Max
