Stylized Creatures - Orc Head Project
Key Features
This complete project covers the modeling and texturing of an orc head, so if you're into fantasy creatures this is the perfect tutorial for you. Follow along as we begin this project by setting up image planes to use as reference to guide us in getting the right proportions for the orc head. During the modeling process we use NURBS and you'll learn to work with this geometry type by scaling and moving hulls, inserting isoparms and detaching surfaces.

Orc Head



When the model has a good base shape we convert it into polygons to add details to the face. During this part of the tutorial we work with a number of polygon modeling tools like extrude, cut face, sculpt geometry and split polygon tool. You'll also learn how to convert from polygons to sub-d's to gain even better control over your shaping and be able to add very fine detail. When our orc head is complete we dive into the world of texturing and begin learning how to lay out an effective flat UV map in the UV texture editor. You'll learn some good techniques when creating UV sets for organic characters and some of the tools that are used during this process.

The final UV map is brought into Photoshop where you'll learn how to paint and build up a realistic skin texture using layers and various brushes. Finally we work with some of Maya's procedural textures and shaders to create the textures for areas like the teeth and rings.
