build your own dystopia concept

Learn how to use Photoshop to create photoreal concept art with this tutorial. Use a ‘photo bashing’ technique – working from photos and literally ‘bashing’ them into new forms by using digital paint – to create a base to paint over. You will also learn how to decide on a composition and where to position the focal points in order to create an interesting concept that tells a story. Creating a realistic painting in a short amount of time is sometimes very difficult. Using photos as a base will help you to manage this problem and give you the chance to create two or more of these concepts in a short amount of time. This tutorial will explain how to use this for your own projects and push your Photoshop…

design your own fantasy vehicle

In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to quickly model a large-scale fantasy ship. The first step involves thinking like an engineer, looking for efficient ways to build the ship. Next, we’ll focus on modelling. For this, I will explain how to get the initial parts built, then how to use them as an example for the rest of ship. This will include not only its structure and style, but how it connects with neighbouring sections. Remember to follow along using the project files provided to get the most out of this tutorial!

construct a robot with your photos

Before we begin the tutorial, close your eyes and imagine a robot that has ninja assassin skills. Its parts are made of bulletproof metal and carbon fibres along with bulletproof glass and here you will learn how to bring this super-cool character to life!

We will use various Transform tools, blend modes, adjustment layers and painting techniques in order to create a dynamic scene with this larger-than-life mechanical robot. An advanced knowledge of the Transform tools, adjustment layers, blend modes and Brush tools is required.

sculpt dynamic forms

The tools in both ZBrush and 3ds Max are very handy, especially when it comes to sculpting anatomy. Over the next few steps we’ll discover methods in these programs to sculpt a heroic character. For the creation of Beowulf, our main character, we will start from a base mesh, where we will focus on how to obtain a dynamic, heroic pose. At the same time as this, we will be trying to model a masculine and well-defined, muscular anatomy, using the default sculpting brushes in ZBrush along with some other customised brushes in order to achieve different types of effects. Then, we will learn how to use more advanced techniques like ZSpheres and DynaMesh along with simpler ones, such as masks and Mesh Extraction, in the design and creation of the sea…

awaken a beast with zbrush

In this tutorial we will go through the steps to create a posed and detailed creature. Starting with only a sphere we will create the rough form of the creature and use ZSpheres to add limbs. We will also make use of readily available Insert Multi Mesh brushes to add features to the creature. After posing the creature we will use Polypainting to create basic materials and textures on the model. Finally, the 3D renders will be taken into Photoshop to finish the composition by adding lighting effects and textures. We will also cover how to export and render the model in KeyShot from ZBrush 4R7. Concept The aim of this project is to create a detailed and expressive creature living in its natural habitat.
