In this tutorial, we will learn how to model a product, in this example a mini soundboard, from concept to the final render. We will learn how to take a simple 2D sketch and turn it into a realistic model, ready to be presented as a pre-visualization mock-up. We will learn how to create a simple studio lighting setup to present our model in, by using the powerful V-Ray Blend Material to create highly-customizable, non-destructive shaders. We will also learn how to create a wide variety of realistic yet simple shaders using the V-Ray Material. Finally, we will look at the powerful Render Elements that V-Ray has to offer, to create our final image in post. By the end of this tutorial, you will have the knowledge to create your own concept models and get some beautiful renders for your product pre-visualization. Software required: V-Ray, Maya 2013, Photoshop CS6.
Introduction and Project Overview Hi, my name is Oasim Karmieh. I am a freelance digital artist. I work as a lighting artist remodeler, and 3D illustrator for animated films, print and commercials. In this course, we're going to create a realistic concept model of a mini sound board. You'll learn how to 3D model a product starting from a simple 2D sketch, create a studio lighting set up to present your pre-vis model, and I'll show you how to create a wide variety of realistic yet simple shaders using V-Ray material. You'll also learn how to use the powerful V-Ray blend material to create highly customizable, non-destructive shaders, and finally we'll look at the powerful rendered elements that V-Ray has to offer. By the end of this course, you'll be able to take a simple 2D sketch and turn it into a realistic 3D model, ready to be presented as a pre-visualization mock up. I'm really excited to share these techniques with you, so let's get started.
