Ian Worrel is ready to share his knowledge.
Do you remember this awesome Mystery Shack from Gravity Falls created by Art Director Ian Worrel? Now you have a chance to learn how to make one yourself.
IAMAG is offering a course where Worrel will walk you through the process in Blender, Gravity Sketch, Photoshop, and Substance 3D Painter.
This eight-part video tutorial demonstrates the process of hand-painting textures in Photoshop that are then applied to a 3D mesh using the projection mapping technique in Blender.
"While this diorama is 3D, it mainly operates as a 2D picture with limited camera motion. I like projection painting because I can lean on my 2D skillset with a bit of 3D dimensionality for added effect – I suppose one definition of 2.5D," said Worrel.
Some videos in the course are step-by-step process demos, and others show the creator talking over a time-lapse screen recording. The tutorial doesn't cover software navigation, so you should be familiar with where to find your tools.
The chapters include:
- Design and Blockout
- Layout and Animation
- Texturing and Lighting
- Rendering for Paint-Over
- Painting and Projection Texturing
- Scattering Cards and EFX
