The Gnomon Workshop: 3D Character Design

The Gnomon Workshop: 3D Character Design
Software used: ZBrush, Keyshot, Maya, Photoshop | Duration: 128 min | 880 MB


In this DVD, Josh Herman guides you through his creative process for redesigning an iconic character while keeping the original character at the heart of the design. To keep the design process fluid and evolving, Josh moves between ZBrush, Photoshop, Maya and Keyshot, using each program's strengths to his advantage and to help overcome creative roadblocks. Starting in ZBrush to get the initial block-in and begin the design process, then moving to Keyshot and Photoshop, Josh shows how he is able to quickly define the look of the character. After the look is achieved, he retopologizes the sculpt in Maya to create clean geometry, then returns to Keyshot to keep the design process flowing into the later stages of modeling. Lastly, Josh uses Keyshot to create a series of final presentation renders, concluding in Photoshop where he adds the finishing touches. For those interested in the art of character design and character modeling, this titles offers an opportunity to watch how 3D tools can be used in an efficient, and effective, workflow.

The Gnomon Workshop: Performance & Acting Creating Believable Characters

The Gnomon Workshop: Performance & Acting Creating Believable Characters


In this lecture and demonstration, In-Ah Roediger shares a step-by-step walkthrough of the process of working on a short animation that requires lipsync. She covers all the basics, from shot planning and getting your reference material together, to polishing your curves and animation in order to give it that extra push. This is an effective example of how one would approach a shot in a studio environment that is running a full feature production. In-Ah provides hands on advice from years of working on animated features and VFX shows, and illustrates her animation workflow in full detail. Assuming a basic knowledge of animating in Maya, this title will help you further your skills to a professional level and get those acting performances and lipsync shots to feel spot on.

Gnomon Workshop - Global Illumination and Caustics in Maya & mental ray

Gnomon Workshop - Global Illumination and Caustics in Maya & mental ray | 1.3GB


In this lecture, Frederic Durand demonstrates a variety of techniques for using Global Illumination and Caustics within Maya and mental ray. Global Illumination and Caustics rendering techniques use photons as the method to create natural lighting phenomenon. Photon based lighting allows light rays to bounce and create complex effects that are not possible with other rendering methods. The training begins with an introduction on Global Illumination theory and quickly moves into how to control the basic GI render settings. Fred shows how to balance accuracy, intensity and photon emission to create fast, production quality renders using Global Illumination alongside of Final Gather. The technical and artistic challenges of caustic lighting are covered in great detail. Materials such as glass, shiny metals and translucent plastics are used as case studies. Compositing is addressed as an integral part of any lighting workflow, as it helps to work more efficiently, while rendering in passes is critical to any successful lighting strategy. For those interested in mastering mental ray, this title offers invaluable techniques from an experienced industry artist.

The Gnomon Workshop: Visual Development for Feature Animation

The Gnomon Workshop: Visual Development for Feature Animation
Software used: Photoshop | Duration: 130 min | 1.85 GB


The ability to convey story and emotion through imagery is vital for developing the look of a film or game. Good design is guided by a cohesive style that reinforces the storytelling and mood. In this lecture and demonstration, art director Gil Rimmer guides you through the creation of a visual development piece; from the first stages of idea generation and reference gathering, to rough staging, blocking and composition to set the stage for the big picture. The process focuses on the readability of shapes, storytelling and stylizing the individual elements in the image to enhance the mood, developing the environment, character and props to come together in a clear visual style that supports the main story idea. Gil then concludes with his unique rendering techniques, while enhancing the lighting and visual effects to bring the piece to a polished finish.
