Join Zaheer Mukhtar for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of 3ds Max: Stylized Environment for Animation.
- [Instructor] As we go through this course I will try my best to explain everything in depth and clarify any confusions you may have, but I will assume that you do have at least some basic knowledge of 3ds Max. If you're not familiar with V-Ray I will be explaining its setup and use briefly in this tutorial. I will also assume that you do have some basic knowledge of the Adobe Photoshop interface, and should be able to perform some basic operations in it. Although I will be creating my final textures in Quixel Suite DDO, but I assure you that you can follow me until the end of this course without even using DDO, and instead rely on other techniques of creating textures in Photoshop, which I will be explaining in this tutorial as well.
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.
