Discover how Maarten Verhoeven created ‘Red Myst’
The Gnomon Workshop has released The Making of “RED MYST” With Maarten Verhoeven, a complete guide to the digital sculptor’s workflow in ZBrush and KeyShot.
The workshop, which provides 157 minutes of video training, follows Verhoeven as he creates a creature concept from scratch, including creating 3D clothing in Marvelous Designer and post work in Photoshop.
Discover a highly optimised workflow for character design in ZBrush and KeyShot
In the tutorial, Verhoeven reveals how he creates one of his dark, mysterious character concepts, using an optimised workflow to sketch, sculpt and render the design at impressive speed.
The videos cover his entire workflow, beginning with a simple sphere in digital sculpting software ZBrush, and using custom brushes to help sculpt and detail the character more efficiently.
Verhoeven also shares his workflow for setting up fabrics in Marvelous Designer, and setting up HDRI lighting and rendering the character in KeyShot, using Photoshop to apply the final touches to the image.
As well as the tutorial videos themselves, viewers can download Verhoeven’s custom ZBrush brushes and the KeyShot materials used to create the concept image.
