I am very impressed! It is easy to see you are on your way to a well-deserved wonderful future.
An absolutely great read, thank you for this. Really lays a foundation on how to go about the learning process.
Hi Matthew and Mr VFX, I’m currently researching this topic of decomposing images into shading and reflectance layers. I would love to learn about what you are trying to use this for to learn more about applications for this technology.
Magdalena Dadela was kind enough to upload a free Marmoset Toolbag 3 scene setup featuring her amazing Goblin. She is a true master of character art, so this is a great chance to learn something.
This is a Marmoset Toolbag 3 scene setup. You can open the scene and find out the material settings and lighting for yourself. The majority of textures are in 2k resolution.
Extract the ZIP file and double click on the scene file to open. All the textures should be linked and ready to roll.
