cmiVFX - Concept Character Design Maya and Vray
In our latest cmiVFX video guide, we’ve joined up with instructor Clifford Green, Senior Lighting/Look Development TD from Zoic Studios. Zoic has created visual effects for vast amount of popular movies and TV Shows such as Breaking Bad, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Spider-Man 2, and much more. In this guide to 3D concept creation in Vray and Maya, Clifford will lead you through the world of 3D concepts and he’ll explore the challenges within the constraints and the limitations of 3D concept creation. We’ll work with a high-end metal shader creation using advanced Fresnel Curve functions that are missing in today’s 3D software packages and we’ll see how to apply this to our concept. We’ll explore subsurface scattering and the creation of a photo-realistic skin, and finally, we’ll cover the lighting and and we’ll learn how to integrate our concept into a full photographic finish. By the end of this video, you’ll have a clear understanding of 3D concept creation and you’ll be able to create complex concepts within Maya and Vray. So lets jump in!
