Don't miss this one - especially if you are new to 3D-Coat.

If you haven't seen the first "From Scratch" series, I suggest you watch these first - but you'll probably be able to follow along, even if you haven't seen it.

File size: BIG!

The Proverbial Pirate


And now, the all new, Part 2, covering efficient use of AUTOPO and UV mapping & unwrapping:

File size: Not quite so BIG

The Proverbial Pirate Part 2 - AUTOPO & UV's



I hope you enjoy it,

It's important... turn off symmetry... make your model come alive.
And then? What about retopo? You have to brake symmetry after retopo... meaning, another app to do the fine sculpting. Repeating myself. Repeating you, actually. :)
Your best was "keep seeing your model from all possible views (or similar) ". I wish everyone can understand the meaning of this. To have interesting abstract geometry from all views. The deeper meaning of sculpting.

Michalis:

What about it? If the face is not truly symmetrical, neither should the topography. You simply prefer to work with symmetrical topography first. Let's see how much trouble it is to create topography that can be animated on a model which is not symmetrical, shall we?

Great video, I learned quite a bit.

Also, you have the best narration voice of any tutorial I've ever watched. Are you a professional voice over?

Thank you. I have done some professional voice over work, long ago in a different era. Glad you learned something.

Hi, Greg.

I am presently doing your rat from scratch series. Excellent timing and voice over. It is quite apparent that you have done voice over work and have a clear and beautiful tone. Some of the best presentation work I've seen in a tutorial. Your efforts are much appreciated by someone who has been wanting to learn 3DC for a long time. I look forward to watching this new series.

Hello, Iam a fairly new user of 3D-COAT. Iam coming from ZBRUSH. I know many people like to compare programs but for me 3D-COAT and ZBRUSH currently the best at what they do and they go about it really differently. One huge thing when going over to a new program is tutorial availability and Iam so happy to see such awesome tutorials for 3D-COAT. Of all the tutorials I have ever gone through (I have spent so much time viewing tutorials from digitaltutors for Maya, Zbrush, etc!) this narrator of these tutorials is the best I have ever heard. The clarity and speed of these tutorials is absolutely awesome. My vote for the absolutely best tutorial maker ever! Thank you. :)

I learned a lot, as well. I would suggest putting your control tips at the very start, so that we can follow along. Thanks for taking the time and effort to put this together.

It's about time that the old pirate be revisited.  So many new gizmos and gadgets and techniques to show.

 

I'll see what I can do.
