Create a photorealistic weapon and brush up on your modeling, sculpting, and texturing skills in ZBrush and Quixel SUITE at the same time. Throughout this course, Creating Photorealistic Weapons with ZBrush and Quixel SUITE, you'll see the breakdown of the process behind creating photorealistic weapons. You'll start with an existing high-poly model. On this pipeline, you'll cover topics such as retopology, UVs, bakes, texturing, and at the end of the course, you'll publish the final model. You will use the latest industry-standard tools and learn tips and strategies for getting the very best results. By the time you're finished, you'll have all the skills you need to begin building your own great-looking, real-time models.

Introduction and Project Overview Hi everyone, my name is Isaac Oster. I'm a character artist at Certain Affinity, located in Austin, Texas. My latest projects include work on the multiplayer and forge maps in Halo 2, part of the Master Chief Collection. In this course, we are going to build a photorealistic, low poly model using high poly geometry from Fusion 360. Some of the major topics we'll be focusing on in this course include using ZBrush to dynamesh and retopologize high poly geometry, laying out UVs in 3ds Max, making procedural maps with xNormal, adding detail and authoring materials using Quixel SUITE, and setting up the final model for publishing in Marmoset Viewer. By the end of this training, you'll be up to date on a pretty solid pipeline for triple-A asset creation and once you get this process down, you'll have everything you need to convert high poly geo into great-looking, efficient game-res models. I'm excited to share these valuable tricks and techniques with you, so let's get started with the first lesson.
