The best Realistic Vray Wood Material Tutorial!

Follow Me!by In my previous posts I did my noob’ish  tutorial on how to make a Standard Wood Material from my own experience gathered around the web. But today I want to share with you with a gem that I found browsing the web some time ago in search of great 3ds Max tutorials for Vray Wood Material. And did I stumbled upon a greatness itself? 😀 Yes, I did indeed. I won’t even try to write steps of this tutorial,…

Follow Me!by So we did prepare all of the textures that we need for Wood material in tutorial Part 1. Go see and read it if you haven’t read it already. So we can be on the same page 🙂 So let’s make some wood! 😀 For starters create a simple shape, say a simple box mesh inside your Viewport. (If you use a box mesh don’t forget to apply the UVW Map modifier from modifiers list  and choose Box mapping layout)…

Standard Wood Material in 3ds Max Tutorial Part 1 (Creating Textures)

Follow Me!by As you may (or may not) already know, that I have modeled my own apartment in 3ds Max. Logically I had to built quite a lot of objects that require Wood material. As I did this with the idea, that I had to import the whole mesh into Unity I didn’t try to do something fancy, because Unity (and any other 3D engine, I believe) best supports (if not only) objects with Standard material applied to them. Unity simply…

Ladies and Gentlemen- My PC! Let’s talk Hardware

Follow Me!by I never thought that PC would become my main working tool. I always have looked at personal computer more as an entertainment tool than a work tool. Every laptop or desktop I ever got to myself was purely for gaming and web browsing purposes. Classic way of entertainment. My First Ever PC I got my first ever PC back in 2005-2006 when I was 17 or 18 years old, I think. Sadly I don’t remember the specs, but it…

I built my home! (…in virtual reality)

Follow Me!by As I was finishing with this grand project (previous post) I kept thinking of what should I do next. After I tried exterior/interior scene modeling I was quite sure I wanted to explore this side of 3D a bit more. So I’ve decided to build the whole apartment that I am currently living in, because, why not? 😀  It is always easiest to build something that is literally around you. And you don’t need to search for reference images, cause…

When life gives you lemons… (how I built my first exterior scene)

Follow Me!by There is a saying in my country “A woman had no problems and then she bought a pig”(Yes, it is a saying 😀). I really had no problems till I got involved in 3D. Previous work was monotonous and same old routine of same repetitive actions. And here I “bought” myself one fat “pig” and didn’t know how to manage it. Don’t get me wrong I don’t mean to interpret that saying in a negative way. Quite the opposite…

Zombies need rest too (learn to slack of)

Follow Me!by Many times I found myself being dog- tired. Usually when I involve in a project (personal or not) I can’t control myself and I work, work and work nonstop. No rest just work I mean in the evenings I just feel like a zombie, who instead of the brainz craves for sleepz. And no one likes zombies, really. I don’t like zombies… So I realized that I really have a problem in that department. I just don’t know…

The elephant and the gang! (my first decent 3D renderes)

Follow Me!by   I got to the point where I was done with the tutorial regarding 3D and was wandering if I should get me some other tutorial or just try and do something on my own. At that time a friend of mine needed someone who could do the artwork of a game he was building so he asked me if I could help him out. The timing was just perfect! Of course I said yes! Creating 3D cartoon…

When ignorance makes you blind

Follow Me!by Just when I started practicing 3D arts I realized that I could’ve begin this whole thing way much earlier. Of course I had daily job then and most of the time I was too tired even to think about anything other that how to get more rest and sleep. (the existence at its finest) I just didn’t have enough brain power (or any power at all) to think about anything else. So all of my husbands preaches about…

Explore, experiment, enjoy! (discovering 3ds Max)

Follow Me!by As I got comfortable with 3D I started to look at other alternative 3D software programs. I new some people that already worked in this industry (true professionals) and they all were hyped about such programs as Cinema 4D, Maya and 3ds Max. Long story short I choose to try 3ds Max and to see what was all the fuss about. Once again despite the fact that I was already familiar with 3D I was nonetheless overwhelmed to…
