The new features facial expression is very unique and the first launch in apple. I have used this expression, and I love to use this. this is very funny and look like the original. but sometimes it refuses to express then i prefer to go Apple Support Australia.

You may want to credit Critical Role and Sam Riegel for the character creation.

Creating Sand Rocks in Substance Designer
7 December, 2017
News

Substance Academy and Jonathan Benainous have shared a new guide that goes over the process of creating amazing “sand rocks” Substance material with the help of Substance Designer. The artist discussed some of the production challenges and talked about his Substance workflow to help you build high-quality materials.

 

Here is a small piece to get you excited: 

ROCKS:

After creating a paraboloid and spreading my shapes, I inverted the result to create a wavy organic effect. I reused a paraboloid to crop the main shape of my rock.

I then used a succession of Slope Blur Grayscale, Directional Warp, Gradient Linear 1, and Level nodes to get a rock primitive.

Now that I have my rock primitive shape, I use a succession of blends to merge them together. The Transformation 2D nodes allow me to place the shape in the right position. The Level nodes are here to adjust the elevation of the two shapes blended in Max.

Using the rock primitive shape previously created, I sculpt into the main rock, subtracting shapes here and there to get as close as possible from the reference.
