Texture AAA game characters
This course will cover how to create believable and realistic characters inside Substance Painter. During this course we will go over how to create complex materials from scratch. Texture a character while working through primary, secondary and tertiary reads, as well as painting believable skin and the maps required to supplement the shader creation in Marmoset Toolbag. We will address good practices when tackling some of the more technical aspects of texture creation for games which ranges from UV map creation, to baking our high poly sculpt to our low poly model.
By the end of this course students will have taken multiple pieces through the process of texturing, as well as taking them to the final stages of look development and presentation. The purpose of this course is to provide students the techniques and fundamentals needed to texture AAA game characters.

I now know how to use substance painter, texture a face, and render a scene in marmoset. Incredibly useful.
