- How to find a concept
- The detailing process in blender (modelling, texturing, lighting, render & post processing)
- Adding the final personal touch to your render (plus my own style)
CONCEPT: The initial idea
Inspiration: Looking for the gold mine of ideas
Here’s the video summary: (Watch it on YouTube)
Research deeper: Polishing your idea
GIVE IT SHAPE: Photoshop/GIMP
KRITA/Photoshop/GIMP/Blender Grease Pencil (or the old school method: Paper & Pencil)
Now jumping into blender!
Focal Element: Identify & Start
“An artwork is a visual machine. It guides our eyes to the focal element”
So you need to find the focal element and start off with working on it. In this example, the focal element is the bubble with the tree. So, I will start modeling the tree first.
Now, Start Refining
Render: (Use Render Layers if necessary)
- Testing the Blender Camera Presets
- Render at higher bounces (in the ‘light path’ tab)
- Render at 50% resolution and at low samples (100 to 200)
Don’t leave the render without a little bit of post-processing. It may prove to be the difference between a success and a failed artwork!
Moving the stuff to GIMP/PS
- Add some lens glare effect.
- Do some color corrections using the Cyan, Magenta and Yellow sliders (Hey, ‘cyan’ sounds like my name)
