Join Adam Crespi for an in-depth discussion in this video Colorizing the grain and planning for stains, part of Maya: Game Prop Creation.
In this video I'll add color into the wood.…I have got my knots in and the wood has been warped and changed.…So I have got good variation across the grain, variation both in width and also in…value, making sure that there are some dark and light areas in here.…Here's how I'll make the color really come to life.…I'll press Ctrl+Shift+N to make a new layer, and I'll name this new layer, Color.…I'll slide it underneath my original layer 1, which I'll rename to be grain.…I'll pick my Color layer and pick the color of the wood I want to have in there.…
What I want to pick actually is not the fully rich, saturated wood that I'm…intending, but rather a paler version. In this case I'll work with a warm orange.…I'll fill this in with the Paint Bucket, and then I'll set the over layer, the…grain, to a Color Burn. There is the wood grain showing up.…Now I realize this is scorchingly vibrant.…It's burning in the color based on the value of that image.…What I'm going to do is pick that under color, press Ctrl+U and pullout the saturation.…
