Character Design and Modeling for Next-Gen Games

In this DVD, Vitaly Bulgarov walks you through his process for creating highly detailed organic-mech characters using XSI®, ZBrush® and Photoshop®. Vitaly explains his 2D/3D concept design process, then shows his process for creating clean detailed meshes within XSI, as well as the sculpting process in ZBrush. Finally he shows how to add character and life to the hard surface and make a presentation of the final high-poly model using ZBrush and Photoshop.

3D Design for Production

 

In this lecture, Vitaly Bulgarov shows his process of creating a fully rendered 3D design for production-oriented pipelines. Using the example of an alien bust, Vitaly goes through the main steps of creating a sci-fi character design from scratch. He begins by making a quick bust sketch in ZBrush®. He then creates a detailed suit design in XSI® using the block-out as a guideline for the proportions of the alien bust. By doing this, Vitaly shows the techniques and tools he uses to create complicated surfaces like multi-layered metal plates, rubber pads, tubes, and attachments. Solving design on the fly, without making any preliminary sketches, he builds a fully detailed mesh for the helmet and suit, explaining why certain design decisions are made. Once the model is complete, Vitaly takes it into KeyShot® for raytrace rendering and then brings the renders to Photoshop® to finalize the design, push the overall look and bring more personality to the character by adding final textures and detail enhancements.
