Complex UV Layout in Maya
Over the last couple of years UV layout in Maya has changed for the better. In this course we're going to be taking a look at some of those changes as we UV map an entire character

Divine Divinity The NeverEnding

Hi guys, after working for 5 months on a TV Show and no time for other personal creative stuff, i finally found some time to do my own project.

I`m starting on creating my own short film named: Divine Divinity The NeverEnding.

Here is the first character i have finished head his name is Kester.

I used, Maya for modelling
Zbrush for basic texturing and placements
Photoshop for final texturing
Maya for fur and SSS.

i still have to do the eyelashes

Next up the bodyworks. My aim is going to be a touch of old deep sea diving suit, with a bit of a modern touch up. Maybe a little bit of Bioshock but not much of it user added image

The environment is on an island. So lots of nice greens and braun collors. Which i like to use at this moment.

nice bodysuit! very very cool!

not sure about that nose though - to be honest, it's looking a bit shapeless.

Here is the first texturing. Now its fairly dark, so the next render with the helmet textured i`ll spend some time lighting it better.

But this is the style i`v textured it atm, this is how i have invisioned it. Only not so dark user added image
