Join Zaheer Mukhtar for an in-depth discussion in this video Blocking out the door frame, part of 3ds Max: Stylized Environment for Animation.
- [Instructor] The last two parts for the blocking-out phase…would be blocking out this arch,…or the door frame,…and then this decoration at the front.…So I'm going to start with this arch for this video,…the door we can add later in the next chapters.…Here in my model I have copied these two planks…from the top…and just put them over here,…and then made another copy on on these sides as well.…So now I will go to the front viewport…and just bring that in the middle…and go to the Create panel,…and I'm going to click Tube…and notice that I have my Height Segment one,…Cap Segment one,…and Sides being set to seven.…
I'm going to create a tube on the side…and give it a bit of width here,…and then some height…and right-click to end the selection process.…Press P on my keyboard to go to perspective viewport,…and just having a look at my model.…Then I will press T on my keyboard…to go to the top viewport,…go to Modify panel…I will right-click…and convert that into Editable Poly,…and go to my Polygon Mode…and I'm going to select these polygons.…
First, Zaheer explores artistic ways to block out the basic forms of your structure, such as using exaggerated proportions and irregular, tilted shapes. Next, he shows how to add details to the forms. Then he demonstrates how to add the more stylized elements including textures, imported materials, color refinements, and lighting. He wraps up the course by wrapping up the workflow, making final render passes and preparing the scene for export. Along the way, he covers art creation, modeling, compositing, and more.
