Tutorial: Model And Pose A Character


3D Artist Magazine just republished one of their paper magazine tutorials on the web. In this one, Jonathan Lampel renders a soldier character in Blender for a sci-fi action shot. Jonathan uses Blender, Substance Painter and Photoshop.

This tutorial will provide an overview of the process of creating an armoured sci-fi character and rendering him out in an action pose. It is intended to show how to approach such a project, and how to get past the major obstacles that are typically encountered while doing so. There are shortcuts and tips mentioned along the way to help speed up your workflow and to reduce the time you spend on what could otherwise be very tedious tasks. We will be using Blender as the main 3D package, along with Substance Painter for texturing and Photoshop for extra colour correction at the end.
