Rob Tuytel presents a new Blender E-book, titled 'Old Masters Unveiled'. After his earlier project 'The Golden Age', Rob continued to develop his technique and learned how to closer approach the old Dutch painting techniques. The e-book is now available for purchase for $35 or $55 including an additional characters pack.
Over the past six months I have written an e-book about creating 3D environments based on the techniques of the old Dutch painting masters. The book is titled Old Masters Unveiled – Creating 3D environments.
I started writing an e-book about 3D environments not to impress, but to inspire new 3D artists. I discovered that you can create good-looking 3D environments just by following your passion. Understanding this process was a long road with a lot of obstacles, and in particular the last one can be avoid, so this was my motivation to start writing this book.
A couple of years ago I changed my views on creating environment scenes. I was looking for a new style that would bring my work to a higher level. I began to study some books about the old environment painters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer, van der Heyden). They inspired me and changed my views on creating 3D environment art.
In this e-book I reveal the techniques used by the old Dutch environment masters. I do this by modeling a scene, showing how we can create scenes by using some of the painters’ techniques.
The book is not about learning modeling techniques, but about learning how to build a scene with passion and inspiration. Therefore it should be interesting for artists who are Blender users as well as 3D artists who work with other 3D programs.
For an additional $20, Rob throws in a character pack. He comments:
It is important to note that a lot of Dutch masters didn’t paint the people and animals in the scene. Although they were very talented at creating environments, creating characters requires a totally different way of working. Therefore they asked other artists to paint the characters in the artwork. That is why i included a extra E-book version with a Character pack. I created a introduction video to show how this looks like.
