Just wanted to share with you all a video tutorial I did for creating tiling textures and normal maps using ZBrush.
The video can be found here: http://www.cg-tube.com
Skill level: Beginnerish
It's a bit long... But covers the entire process i used to create the texture in the example.
CG-Tube.com is a website I just started dedicated to sharing techniques and resources with artists who are trying to learn processes we use in the industry, and to share tips/tricks/resources among professionals.
This is the first video tutorial, so all your feedback is important! I'd like to be able to provide the most helpful information (either by doing tutorials like the one currently posted on the site, or by having my peers or any other interested parties sharing their techniques.)
The site is still a WIP and is very simple... which I'd like it to stay that way.
The videos and resources that will be posted there are absolutely free. I'll also provide the final textures and models created during the tutorials for people to use however they'd like.
If there's one thing I've learned from being part of the Polycount community, it's that sharing is caring. Polycount has been around for as long as I can remember in various forms, and the goal has always been the same... share your shit. I'd like the CG-Tube.com project to continue that, but focus on education.
This is the first of many tutorials I hope to put on the site. Let me know what you think! If you're interested in becoming a part of the project, shoot me a message!
There are no memberships required to view or use the content.
The video will stream using flash and is at 1080p resolution... even though the quality of the capture isn't too great at times... The video currently ways in at 2 gig... if anyone has any problem watching the thing for any reason let me know and I'll fix it... This is kind of a test run here
Lots of stuff planned for the site, so please send us your ideas, we're doing this for you... so if you want to see a particular video tutorial on something, or a feature for the site, let us know.
also please mail your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
until we get our mail situation figured out. Or post them here to share with the group
