In this course, you will learn everything you need to know to create the final results that you see in the images and trailers

11+ HOURS!

This course contains over 11+ hours of content – You can follow along with every single step – The course does inclose a few small time lapses, this is just to speed up very repetitive tasks, the rest is done in real-time. –
We will start doing the low poly modeling in Blender, then we will move on to the high poly where we will use Zbrush to clean up our booleans. After that, we will be doing our UV Unwrapping and prepare our scene for baking. We will be doing our baking inside of Marmoset Toolbag 4, upon which we will move to Substance Painter where we will create our final texture. And finally, we will render our end result back again in Marmoset Toolbag 4. Everything in this tutorial course will be explained in detail.


This game art tutorial is perfect for students who have some familiarity with the tools Blender, Substance Painter, Zbrush, and Marmoset Toolbag 3/4– Everything in this tutorial will be explained in detail. However, if you have never touched blender or substance painter before we recommend that you first watch an introduction tutorial of those programs (you can find many of these for free on Youtube or paid on this very website)
