Join Zaheer Mukhtar for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of 3ds Max: Stylized Environment for Animation.
- [Instructor] Although this is the end of the course,…I believe there are many things…that you can do and you must do.…Some of things I would recommend here…is that taking the same model…once you have composited everything…and learned the art of composition as well…and compositing different layers,…what you can do is apply an FFD modifier…on different parts of this model,…including the top part here and this part over here…just like we did to make some changes to these areas.…
Again, apply an FFD modifier…and make this even bulkier and try to add…some more angles here and go to the extremes…of stylization by changing the shapes…and making everything even bulkier than currently it is.…I will also recommend that you do use…the other technique of texturing that I mentioned.…One was the hand-painting technique.…If you feel that's kind of difficult…and time-consuming, you can take simple textures…and apply filters onto them…and use them over the same building…and see how you get the result without using DDO.…
And I'm sure the result will be absolutely stunning.…
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.
