Technically, the artist needs to (and does) credit the author of the artwork he referenced and only mention what and where from the character is. Given that, this is a 3d/gaming/technical thingie-ma-jibs website that does not (and probably shouldn't really) reflect on the circumstance of the character itself, but concentrate on creation and techniques used in creation. The name of the character is referenced, but nowhere on the original art the name Sam Riegel is mentioned. As much as critter community is nice and welcoming, this part of "CREDIT THIS OR CREDIT THAT" irritates me. IMHO, Credit is given where credit is due. This 3d model was made with learning purposes only, whereas the original art is being sold. Instead of commenting "GIVE CREDIT" comment "COOL ART OF SAM'S CHARACTER" or "GREAT CRITICAL ROLE ART". All that said, this is an amazing rendition of the original artwork of the character of critical role. As a critter, I love both this piece and the idea of other critter being so talented! Peace, a member of the wonderful critter family.
You need to make it clear that this is an interpretation of someone else’s character and credit them (Sam Reigel, from Critical Role).
As great as this is, it’s not actually “your character” so you should really credit Sam Reigel of Critical Role who created this character, and make it clear this is your interpretation of it, because you make it sound like it was all your idea.
Grzegorz Baran, an artist from Ubisoft, released a mind-blowing guide to photogrammetry which is a result of over a year of his photogrammetry research. The 166-page document covers all key points for building photogrammetry-based PBR textures.
I wanted to scratch my photogrammetry experience together and create something, that would help to save somebody’s time, learn on mistakes I made and best practices I found.
I covered entire process in details from surface capture towards baking, seam removal, tweaking to getting final, useful, tileable in all directions high quality PBR material.
Key software I use: Agisoft Photoscan, ZBrush, Substance Designer and Substance Painter.
A preview of the guide from ArtStation:
The pack with the document also contains:
- _final_tweaks.sbs – Substance Designer graph the artist used to tweak materials
- plane_uv1to1.fbx – simple plane with 1:1 uv he used in Substance Painter to tile textures.
