Throughout these lessons, we will explore valuable techniques when working in Rhino and ZBrush. We will be implementing jewelry modeling techniques used in the jewelry industry. We will also learn how to add very complex organic surfaces using ZBrush and convert it into a Rhino file. We will also be preparing our model for rendering and creating a simple turntable animation. By the end of the tutorial, you will be able to model a high-resolution jewelry design and prepare a rendering using KeyShot. Software required: Rhino 5, ZBrush 4R6, T-Splines for Rhino, KeyShot 4.
Introduction and Project Overview (Music) Hi everyone. My name is Jean Gorospe. I am a 3D artist at David Webb in New York City. I currently work as a senior CAD artist designing various models for several lines in the company. I also work as an instructor for several companies and schools. My skills set covers concept design, CAD, digital sculpting, and rapid prototyping. In this course, we're going to model a luxury bracelet using Rhino 5, T-Splines, and ZBrush 4R7. The purpose of this course is to learn various workflows in jewelry design. We will explore industry techniques that I use on a daily basis. By the end, we will finish with a beautiful model, which we can render using KeyShot to present to our client for further review. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to, one, explore and learn complicated techniques in Rhino; two, learn how to quickly build organic shapes using T-Splines; three, add sculptural details from ZBrush into Rhino; and four, apply industry jewelry techniques to your model. By the end of the training, you will understand the aesthetics of jewelry design and model a wonderful concept of your own. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these techniques with you. So let's get started with the first lesson.
