Want to get into Game design but dont know where to start?
then this is the course for you!

During this course you will see a whole pipeline and along the way you will understand what is required to create games characters inside Zbrush, I also show you how to get the assets straight out of ZBrush both High and Low poly models and into Substance Painter!!

In this course you will learn essential skills to turn your ZBrush sculpts into low res game ready assets, this indepth course covers three main programs and will be used as follows:

  • ZBrush 4 R8: Where you will build your character and texture him up, then prepare him for export into Substance painter.
  • Substance Painter: You will learn how to export from ZBrush to Substance without the need of other software, I also show you exactly whats happening for the exports to work and supply a work sheet of the protocals!
  • Marmoset Toolbag 3: We will look at how to get exported maps as well as the mesh into Marmoset and set up for render.

Important Information

This course also uses Maya it is not needed for the course but does explain more clearly what goes on with exports from ZBrush this program was used to make more clarity on what is happening.

Creating a Games Character Course The Minion! - Retopology for our Basemesh

ZBrush Game Character Creation Course Using Zbrush, Substance Painter and Marmoset Toolbag3!

In this lecture I am going to show you how you can retopologise the base mesh we just created this will forn the lowres version and it is very important to practice this technique, specially note the edgeloop flow around the mough and eyes this is great for animation as everything will pull i the correct direction when we deform or animate it, Although I do not cover animation in this course it is still good practice!!!!

6
Creating a Games Character Course The Minion! - Setting up Polygroups

ZBrush Game Character Creation Course Using Zbrush, Substance Painter and Marmoset Toolbag3!

in this lecture we will set up the polygroups, later in the course this will help us not only with isolating sections of our model but will also allow us to set up UV maps into seperate islands as well as that it will also be used as a colour ID in substance painter!

7
Creating a Games Character Course The Minion! - Creating the Goggles

Creating a Games Character Course The Minion! - Teeth

ZBrush Game Character Creation Course Using Zbrush, Substance Painter and Marmoset Toolbag3!

Lets create the teeth for our model, we want a simple mesh for this so we will start with a simple cube, pay attention to the deletion of the faces we do this to cut down the number of polys and simplifiy our model, the rule is if you cannot see it delete it!! (but be carefull if youe animating some faces might be visible on deformations, just something to be aware of!)

12
Creating a Games Character Course The Minion! - Hair

ZBrush Game Character Creation Course Using Zbrush, Substance Painter and Marmoset Toolbag3!

Lets add the Minion Hair to this guy, later in the course your see that we only use one side of the hair and mirror it so we use less texture space, as both are identcal we dont need to produce two UV maps positions.

13

29
Creating a Games Character Course The Minion! - Fox Skull

ZBrush Game Character Creation Course Using Zbrush, Substance Painter and Marmoset Toolbag3!

Now we are going to take another detour into another mini project this time we will take a 3D scan of a fox skull and turn it into a low resolution piece of usable geometry.

In this lesson we will export this one subtool out into Substance painter because it is just one subtool its going to be pretty straight forwards, however we will get more complex later using the naming conventions to help create out Normal Map without any artifacts projecting to other tools, more on that later.

30
Creating a Games Character Course The Minion! - Fox Skull colour ID

ZBrush Game Character Creation Course Using Zbrush, Substance Painter and Marmoset Toolbag3!

Being able to create a colour ID is pretty usefull for masking inside Substance we will now do that as well as add bolt heads to the skulls high poly tool.

31

36
Creating a Games Character Course The Minion! - Exporting maps as OBJ ZBrush

ZBrush Game Character Creation Course Using Zbrush, Substance Painter and Marmoset Toolbag3!

Just a quick side step whilst we are in the exporting and importing stage I wanted to show you how to export normally from ZBrush and merge the maps if you have set up a UV set, this is good to know as these files can still be used for Game as you have done all your texturing inside ZBrush itself!

37
Creating a Games Character Course The Minion! - ID revisit

ZBrush Game Character Creation Course Using Zbrush, Substance Painter and Marmoset Toolbag3!

I know we already did this so chances are you already have the ID map however it important to see it again, I was going to remove this lecture but feel repetition is warranted for this!
