Futuristic Character Design Tutorial
Futuristic Character Design : Senior concept designer Maciej Kuciara takes you through the entire futuristic character design workflow. Learn alongside Maciej’s professional Apprentices as you practice everything from loose sketching techniques to advanced final render procedures. Maciej will show you how to solve unique design challenges with consistency and speed.
1. Choosing the Right Path
Starting with a sample creative brief and reference collection, Maciej will walk you through the early stages of a futuristic character design, including project-planning and software choices. You will learn his process for creating thumbnails from shapes, form, and lighting, as well as iterating on initial designs.
2. Minimum Viable Concept
By building upon your thumbnail sketches, you’ll be able to make complicated choices with little consequence. Maciej will show you his best practices for honing in on a preliminary idea with very little time invested.
3. The Simplicity of Complexity
It’s possible to create complex designs using some of the most primitive objects, and Maciej is going to show you how. By using 3D modeling tools, we will dive into making design choices on top of a posed character. We’ll also draw quick notes on top of our 3D sketches to solve possible problems before they become roadblocks.
4. Power of Fusion
Maciej will show you how to take your 3D sketch from the previous lesson to the next level using Fusion 360. You will also learn some kitbashing do’s and don’ts when it comes to testing your initial designs, by creating simple lighting keyframes.
5. Pushing the Limits
Unfinished designs and missing details can easily break the impression of high quality. While continuing working with Fusion 360, Maciej will discuss the rewards and pitfalls of pushing the limits of your designs. We will also explore how Marvelous Designer can simplify your creation process and save you time in the long run.
6. Lights, Camera, Action!
Making a great design is one thing. Selling it is an entirely different story. In this lesson, you will Learn how to finesse your design with great composition and lighting. Maciej will also explore how the pipeline discussed thus far will help you create high quality iterations in no time.
7. Modular Compositing
Modularity is a bliss. Maciej will start with in-depth breakdown of shaders and quick mapping. From here, Maciej will break down and explain render passes inside of Octane to use in your final illustration.
8. The Devil is in the Details
How do you decide when your painting is really done? Maciej will show you the importance of touch-up details which can make or break the final result of your painting, including special effects and color grading
