Step by Step Process How to Create a Game-Ready Character
using Zbrush, 3ds Max, Substance Painter, Photoshop, & Unreal
In this course, you will be taken through the entire process of retopologizing, unwrapping, baking and texturing a full body game character. We will start by decimating and exporting our character out of Zbrush. Then we will make a low poly version of our character using 3ds Max. I will go over the importance of having clean topology that will make your character easy to animate and create UVs for. After going through the process of retopologizing, we will unwrap our character. We will unfold our mesh so we can create textures that will fit our 3d model. I will discuss what makes a clean UV set, how to optimize your UV texture space, and the fastest and the most efficient ways to create your UVs.
After we unwrap, we will be ready for baking and texturing in Substance Painter. We will go through the process of extracting our details from our high poly mesh so we can use them for our low poly mesh. We will create realistic skin, wound, scratches, metal, leather, and tattoo by using different types of brushes, stencils, filters, generators, and smart materials.
After texturing, we will put our character inside Unreal game engine to check out how our character will appear in an actual game. At the end, we will create a nice visual presentation of our character in Marmoset Toolbag and Substance Painter. If you are determined to take your high res sculpt all the way to a completely production ready mesh, then this course is for you.
