Robot Workflow by panick Robot Workflow by panick
People have been asking here and on other sites on how I went about doing this robot. Thought it would be easier to show.

Now this is more like a little sneak peak at my work flow, then a full step by step tutorial(That would be impossible to get down into one picture). This is more for people who already have some basic knowledge in Zbrush and standard 3D graphic software.

If you have more specific questions please feel free to ask and I'll try to help. :D

this has helped a lot! I am not yet really familiar with zbrush, but this concepts really prove that this tool is epic! Thanks for sharing!
The baked alpha was a really nice tip.
By the way, so you rendered the baked map as image right? and used its alpha/transparency data as a brush?
so I can also make my own from photoshop? ( like make shapes and having their edges blurred , which will have an indented effect?

Quick question. Why would you use alpha maps instead of for example projection master with the tools you had previously made? Does it look different or is it just preference?

Very sweet workflow tutorial, really like the idea of creating height maps in modo - hadn't thought of that one! Going to try it after I finish typing this. Many thanks for your time - very cool :)

You are something beyond comprehension, man. Not only does it take great skill to create models like yours in the program, it takes a brilliant mind to create models like yours inside it to begin with.

I'm so glad I've stumbled upon this. I'm still learning Zbrush but just reading this made me learn a dozen new things about the program. One day I hope to accomplish something similar to this. : )
Thanks!

This was really insightful, I have had a few daliances into Zbrush before but never anything too detailed, thanks for the tips :D

I just have 1 question, you use Modo to make your alpha maps right? Could I not just paint those in photoshop or another painting program?

:iconseiferzed:
seiferzed Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
nice ! i never thought it could look real textured just by playing with some photoshop effects , which makes me wonder if you can take the resulting texture from photoshop and paint it back in zbrush so it can have this dirty metal look in real 3D in Zbrush

Thanks for sharing! I work mostly with Mudbox because I never got the hang of Zbrush's interface, but the principles behind stamps and alpha maps are the same.
It was a big help to see the technique explained in detail like this!

:iconpanick:
panick Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Yup exactly. The method is more or less the same. I'm sadly "stuck" in Zbrush since I started with that, at least for sculpting. I'm gonna use Mudbox more for texturing.

Glad you like it:D
