The Gnomon Workshop :Look Development with V-Ray for Maya with Stephen Delalla
Duration 10h 27m Project Files Included MP4
Look development is the art of giving emotion to a model via textures, shaders, lighting, and even compositing. It is a very exciting time as you get to see your model take shape, and the story you are telling begins to fall into place. In this lecture, Stephen DeLalla will be covering his entire look development process with V-Ray for Maya. He begins with a newly modeled asset to discuss proper preparation. Since there is a need for consistency among shading work, Stephen explains how to create a look dev scene to use for all render tests. This same scene is used during our asset work, and also during an in-depth look at creating realistic shaders for cloth, metal, wood, glass, concrete, stone, and leather. After applying a set of base shaders to the asset, we take a render into Photoshop for a quick paint over to design the color palette of the asset.
