Patient zombie concept. Did a bunch of SSS renders to comp in Photoshop, I went with a simple 3 point light setup, the background was later comped in photoshop as well. I did 3-4 sss renders, a standard grey shader and an alpha matte. Hope it's not too obscene for you peeps.. but I mean if you watch Walking Dead, this is really not that bad at all.

Here's another concept I did. The idea started from a doodle. I had to quickly execute the sculpt to capture that image in my mind's eye.

Amphibious, subterranean, bug-eating pygmy creature. Tribal... I think. Ingestion happens in that orifice on his belly where insects are slowly dissolved by stomach acid. The spindly hook claw is for digging out insects in those hard to reach areas.

I hardly did any post in photoshop with this render. I rendered 2 different sets of SSS passes and a bone material pass. I then blended the SSS layers and masked out the bone material for his head. I'll post more shots soon.

  ;D oof, fantastic!
Dominic, can you explain how you go about getting your models from Z-brush into KS with regards to all the UV's remaining in place?
Do you do it with UV master?

Cheers! M
Title: Re: Dominic Qwek's Art Dump
Post by: evilmaul on February 21, 2013, 12:58:13 pm
nice job Dominic!
out of curiosity how much post processing have you done on the final render and whats your impression of KS4 so far?
Title: Re: Dominic Qwek's Art Dump
Post by: DominicQwek on February 21, 2013, 01:14:42 pm
mjb- Yep, I use UV Master and then decimation master to lower the polycount with Freeze UVs turned on.

evilmaul- Most of it is rendered in KS4. I can use a spec map now (thanks to KS4) and that helps a ton, seriously what we need next is an SSS intensity map, and a gloss map and we're golden for organic work. The only post processing I did on this piece are color adjustments and filter to make it look more raw and grungier. I also painted in some blood splats, grime and bg. Loving KS4 a lot, like I said, the inclusion of spec map is a huge help for organic work, and there are no more green artifacts.
Title: Re: Dominic Qwek's Art Dump
Post by: mjb on February 21, 2013, 01:32:30 pm
Dominic, if you don't mind, I might need to pick your brains about this a bit more. I havent tried bringing a zbrush model into KS as yet and will have a go over the weekend.
If I get stuck would you mind a few questions?

Title: Re: Dominic Qwek's Art Dump
Post by: DominicQwek on February 21, 2013, 02:09:34 pm
Thomas,

SSS Intensity map - A map to control how much translucency shows up in areas, instead of a flat value across the model, we would be able to paint a greyscale map to indicate which parts should have more translucency and which parts have lesser.

Glossiness Map- Greyscale map to determine how tight or broad the specular highlights are.. Evilmaul, you want to chip in? You're the surfacing guru. :P
Title: Re: Dominic Qwek's Art Dump
Post by: guest84672 on February 21, 2013, 02:29:59 pm
Gloss map - isn't that the same as a specular map?

Intensity map - interesting. I can see how this can be useful for organic models. On the other hand, it would be determined by the thickness of the model in certain areas, or not?

By glossiness map, do you mean a map to control roughness? E.g. Fully white having roughness 0 and fully black having roughness 1. Or maybe the other way around? :)
I can see a lot of potential for worn materials as well...

The concept of 'translucency intensity' map seems interesting.
I can see it makes sense for organic models. Organisms are typically composed of multiple biological 'materials' that have different physical properties (reflection, refraction, IOR, translucency...).
I take that in zbrush you typically model your creatures as 'single parts' and not as 'assemblies' (sorry, I'm a CAD guy ;)).

Dries
Title: Re: Dominic Qwek's Art Dump
Post by: DominicQwek on February 21, 2013, 02:41:04 pm
hmm the spec map controls how intense/strong the highlights are and the gloss map should control how broad or tight the highlights are. That way you could do things like fake sweat or wet areas and it does not have to be modeled in, you would set the sweaty areas to a higher gloss and be able to control the spec intensity apart from the dry areas of the face with the spec map. Not sure if this relates to how KS renders but its the same for most 3d packages, thats how it is as far as I know. I could be wrong

for sss intensity map, the problem is sometimes you get sss in areas you dont. Sometimes I notice I get the right amount of SSS on the ears but realised it could be slightly lesser on the rest of the head, having that sss intensity map just gives artist more control. This is also available in most 3d packages.

Thanks again, Thomas.
Title: Re: Dominic Qwek's Art Dump
Post by: evilmaul on February 21, 2013, 04:36:28 pm
cool!

well I honestly, at least for the things that i do, dont feel the need of having a SSS texturable channel as it would go against the philosophy of the package of being phisically correct. All the shaders out there are just hacks and in all the honestly they more or less and despite how many channels you texture, look like silicon more than skin. Henrik shader to me is the best translucency shader now commercially available.
As for the glosiness yeah that could be mappable too for the kind of effects that you highlighted...in this case it would be the roughness channel being mapped I believe.
Anyway regardless of all of this...great job on the shark guy :)

Post by: DominicQwek on February 22, 2013, 11:42:12 am
For concept work, I find myself having to render two different SSS shots and masking between the two. That said, I agree with you about how Keyshot is a physically correct render and its philosophy to have real world shaders. It's just one of those good to have options available. I do think its one of the best SSS shaders around too and super easy to use which is a huge plus and time saver.

cool!

Here's another piece. Rendered in KS4 and PS for touch up. Shaders for his accessories took little to no time thanks to the material library. :)

Domorian Warriors are fierce, tribal creatures, born into a warrior caste. Some veer far from their tribe, with a thirst for adventure and an eye on the bounty. Domorian warriors are known to have a nasty temperament and are often the first to start a fight.

Here's another piece rendered in KS4. Last design of the series inspired by the space opera genre. I wanted to portray a wise and stoic character. A teacher of sorts... or perhaps a sage herding livestock out in the desert plains.

Thanks Marco. I tweaked his expression some more for the 3d print. Hopefully he'll look less scared :)

The plugin does not export meshes with subd levels at the moment, you'd have to collapse your levels. And as for HD sculpt meshes, I don't think it does that either, afaik.

yes I does not do that and also for whtever reason at home I get a msg saying that the model doesnt have UVs and/or textures and it wont push it to KS. Didnt run into this at work tho.

Thanks Numioh.

Here's my latest piece.

Category IV Kaiju, codenamed :Hachiwara. I grew up watching giant monsters terrorize cities. Needless to say, watching Pacific Rim was like being a kid all over again. As such, I was inspired to create a Kaiju of my own.

I've been using the Zbrush plugin and it just saves me the hassle of having to export and import OBJ's. I can't imagine not having it as a part of my workflow now!

These textures are amazing!  Even though I'm a KS power user, I have no experience with figures, so here's my dumb question-  How do you and the other artists like evilmaul apply the materials, and in what format?  Are areas selectively mapped like I do in SolidWorks?  Is it just one huge dump, which I doubt?  KeyShot should do a webinar just on figures!

As far as the texturing goes, it is all done in ZBrush. And the GoZ plugin brings it all over into KeyShot.

A 4-eyed monkey alien?. Perhaps a pirate or a smuggler... or the crook you want to look for when smuggling contraband items across the Enrovian space border. Let's call him Gruek.

It's crazy how I didn't have to unwrap UVs or export maps from zbrush for this piece. All polypaint was transferred using the Keyshot GoZ plugin, body, eyes and hair. The rest is rendering different passes in Keyshot and comping in Photoshop.

Post by: TpwUK on August 30, 2013, 01:49:08 am
Well you certainly don't want that nibbling on your ear! Excellent modelling Dominic, pluck a few of those hairs on its head, they just look a little too uniform, or change some to be either darker or lighter just to add randomness to them.

cool Dom, like the peach fuzz.
is this interactive render?
I found that somtimes very small one are hard to sample and they appear just like bright spots on the surface. I hope that when we will have curves, this problems that smaller polygons have , will go away.

Thanks all.

Phillipe- these are just personal art pieces.

TpwUK- you're right about that. I'll have to look out for that next time.

evilmaul- yeah, that's the problem you see here. Even when I have really high settings for his peach fuzz, it still does that bright dot look. The longer strands are usually fine. This is not interactive render. Anyway, I definitely learned more things regarding fibermesh and rendering them in Keyshot, thanks for your advice!

Ya I'm doing that. It's just hard to pixel peep when the window is small. I had to rotate my monitor so that it's vertical in order to use the realtime window for a portrait piece. Fortunately, it didn't take too long to render!

Hey all, Here's my Sculpt-Off entry. Sculpt-Off was hosted by Pixologic at 3d Printer World Expo. Contestants had 90 minutes do finish a bust and it would be printed the next day. I did not win that 3d Printer but it was one of the most challenging and fun experiences in my life. I decided to take my creation to Keyshot and do a final render.

Here are a couple of illustration technique exploration. I used Keyshot's toon shader to create subtle line strokes and rendered passes to comp in photoshop. After which I recreated some brush strokes in photoshop.

Some of you may know I produce my own resin kits. Here are pre-vis shots done in Keyshot to give a good idea of how the 3d print would look like. I do this for all my 3d printed pieces now. Having a proper camera along with realistic lighting and materials is one of the ways I use to identify if the details will  hold up for print.

Not sure if I posted these before but seeing as my previous image links do not work now, I'll post them again.

I created a series of gumroad tutorials on creature concepting and how I use zbrush and keyshot to create realistic creature concepts. These are some of them. You can find my gumroad tutorials at gumroad.com/dominicqwek (http://gumroad.com/dominicqwek)

A series of alien skull designs.  Rendered with stone materials in Keyshot. The HDR lighting editor was used to create custom lighting for each of these skull.s

These are some fascinating creature designs with a very nice subtle hint of H.R. Giger. Keep the monsters comin'!
