Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Dan John Cox, and welcome to my course Game Weapon Texturing Fundamentals. I'm a 3D artist at Capybara Games. Crafting stylized weapon textures requires a specific kind of technique to avoid having something look too procedural, but when it's done correctly, the results can be really compelling. This course will take an existing weapon model and focus on the texturing side of things inside of Substance Painter and Unreal Engine 4 where we will create a modern, believable, and stylized texture for game development. Some of the major topics we will cover include detailed hand painting of stylized textures, utilizing substance materials in unique ways, creating custom brushes in Substance Painter, and finally, creating a custom cloth shader inside Unreal 4. By the end of this course, you'll have an understanding of how to create a stylized fantasy weapon using Substance Painter and Unreal 4. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the Substance Painter and Unreal 4 Engine interfaces. I hope you'll join me on this journey to creating game textures for weapons with the Game Weapon Modeling Fundamentals course at Pluralsight.
