3RD Eye Blind (ZTool Download)
just finished a new little mini project for myself and I thought I would share my work with everyone.
First I was snooping around on the Freedom Of Teach website and I saw there was a “CG Practice Model Download”. I thought it might have been the hi res model that they used to generate their 3D print, but it was just an base mesh with no detail. I’m not sure why but I just stared sculpting on it. ( really didn’t need to start anything new at this point.)
At first I was going to do just another organic model but I was rather impressed and inspired by the hard surface modeling that FoOD and Sebcesoir have been generating inside of Zbrush lately. So I gave it a try and here are the results.
I used masks quite a bit. The clay tubes brush worked rather nicely for building up flat surfaces along with the flatten brush and of course the smooth brush to clean up some of my mistakes. I also used the lazy mouse with the standard brush and a custom alpha for generating strait lines.
我用了相当多的遮罩。Clay tubes刷子配合flatten刷子做平面效果很好用，当然smooth刷子可以清理我的一些错误。我总是用带lazy mouse的standard刷子加上自定义的alpha制作狭窄的线条。
I found that using some of these custom alphas that I made with the standard brush, with lazy mouse turned on and a lazy step of .01 gave me rather nice results for long smooth thin lines.
I also created a few custom Material Capture shaders for sculpting.
我还为雕刻建立了一些自定义Material Capture shaders。
I built a Photoshop file that makes it kinda easy to generate new MatCap shaders. I things on layers to control the over all shading of the material, you can get custom control of a shader if you want to build a MatCapwith this file.
我建立了一个Photoshop文件，这很方便地生成新的MatCap shaders。我用层控制所有的材质shading。如果你想建立一个MatCap的文件，你可以得到一个自定义控制的shader 。
After the model was complete I used Zapplink and Photoshop to build a base color texture. I also wanted to learn more about lighting and baking that to a texture in Maya. So for the color and lit version of the texture I created several passes that separated out the lights, the shadows, Ambient Occlusion (created in XNormal) and then cavity mapping created with ZMapper.
在模型完成后我用Zapplink和Photoshop去制作一个基础颜色贴图。我还想学习更多的关于在maya里的灯光和烘焙贴图。所以在颜色和发光的贴图上我用了几个要点，分离出lights, shadows, Ambient Occlusion（在XNormal里创建），而cavity贴图用ZMapper制作。
When you load the .ZTL file it will be filled with the color white and have the MatCap Grey material already applied to it. If you would like to apply a different material to the object turn on MRGB, choose the Flat Color shader and go Color>Fill Color. You can now pick any shader you wish to view the model with.
当你打开.ZTL文件时，模型会带有白色和MatCap Grey material。如果你想应用不同的材质给模型打开MRGB，选择Flat Color shader再使用Color>Fill Color。你现在可以挑选任何你希望的shader去查看模型了。
If you load the color texture I provided I suggest using the MatCap Pearl Cavity shader to look at the model.
如果你导入颜色贴图，我建议用MatCap Pearl Cavity shader来查看模型。
If you use the color and lit texture that I provided then you will need to apply the Flat Color material with the texture applied to view the model correctly.
如果你用颜色和灯光贴图，我建议你可以用Flat Color material来正确地参看模型。
You will also need to flip the texture vertically.
I hope you enjoy!
