Introduction and Project Overview
Hey everyone, my name is Andrius Balciunas, and I am a CGI artist from Lithuania. Currently I'm freelancing most of the time and I'm also a part-time lecturer at Information Technology Training Center which is located in the same country where I live. So in this course I'm going to guide you through the process of how to create a female character. I'll start by explaining how I usually set up references. Then I will pose my character, show you the ways I like to create clothing and eyelashes. Then I will unwrap our models and set up lighting and skin shader for my character. I'll show you the ways I like to create skin textures by starting painting them directly on the model, and later adding details in Photoshop. And then I will end up with post-production for complete render of the character. So I hope you will learn something new in this course and let's get started!
