Lesson 7

7. Advanced Keyshot Techniques

  • instructor

- Jama Jurabaev

  • apprentice

- Anthony Jones

In the final stage of the 3D workflow, Jama will show you how to set up production-ready render passes and settings. Using texture projection workflows, you'll learn to create unique designs for characters and environments.



Create at least two variations on an environment design with distinctly different moods

I tryed to do Jamas advance Keyshot Techniques, but I did use ZBrush to build the environment. It was faster for me as I am more used to ZBrush.
After that I took one of my aircraft designs the Goose (build in Alias), one of my creatures (ZBrush) and my character Niefa (ZBrush) and put everything into Keyshot. After that I tryed to use Jamas Photoshop techniques.
You see Niefa just getting of the Goose and enjoying the beautiful sunset over the donut mushroom fields on Aeon...

Homework for the lesson 7

My homework for week 7! I had problems with heightmaps but it turned out good at the end. Can't wait to put all the knowledge of all weeks together in the final render!

I learned a great deal and am happy with the results!

Lighting Reference for Version 2 here:

Here are some environments made using this technique. I tried to keep it simple. First image is of a sorta misty mountainous area, and the second is a sort of tropical beach with a big ol' volcano in the distance.

The last two images are the straight renders before I applied the follow-up work in Photoshop.

Big thanks to all the people who took the time to help me out on the Learnsquared Slack chat!
