Description

In this MARI tutorial, we will learn about hand painting textures in MARI for a character model. We'll begin this process by learning some basics about MARI. Things like bringing in geometry, creating channels and shaders, and understanding the concept of the paint buffer. Next we'll begin painting our character by laying down a base color and then building some variation on top of that. We'll walk step by step through adding paint detail on top of paint detail until we end up with our finished painting. We'll wrap this course up by learning a little about color correction and then how to export our textures out of MARI. After completing this tutorial, you will have enough knowledge of this powerful texture painting application to begin painting your own characters without the use of photographs. Software required: MARI 1.4v1.
