Transparent Creatures Tutorial

Happy New Year!

For those of you curious about the new Transparent Creatures tutorial available now, here's a trailer to wet your appetite!

This tutorial will show you how I am able to start without an idea, and quickly render a creature to completion featuring transparent skin layers and organic forms. Sculpting the design from a sphere in ZBrush, I spend my time building up a foundation of anatomy and surface details. Working with Subtools to build out additional organic parts such as teeth, eyes, and organs. I discuss how I work with Polypaint to create convincing skin textures, and how I adjust my render settings in ZBrush to produce my final images. Finally, I share how to composite your renders in Photoshop, preparing the creature for final presentation.

  • 8 part video series (2 hours and 53 minutes)
