In this DVD, Laurent shares his techniques for detailing and refining the model he started in Creature Modeling for Production. Using 3ds Max, Deep UV and ZBrush, Laurent demonstrates the pipeline he uses every day at Blur Studio to add final details to a high-poly model based on a Carlos Huante design. He discusses how to achieve clean UVs with Deep UV, and how he adjusts volume proportions in ZBrush. He also shows how to create alpha maps in Photoshop® and use them in ZBrush to easily add surface details such as veins, bumps and other skin textures. Finally, Laurent shows how to export normal maps from ZBrush using the ZMapper plug-in and how to use the normal maps and cavity maps in Max for a sample render with Brazil.
