WHAT IS THIS?

This is a step by step modeling and rendering tutorial on how to create the Hex Cyber Muscles you see in the cover. The tutorial runs at normal speed with real-time narration of everything I'm doing, starting from a blank scene to the final product image.

DISCLAIMER: I used a paid addon for Blender called Curve Basher to generate the cables coming out of the tips but you can still follow along using this vanilla blender technique: https://youtu.be/gwHz3yR74G4


TOPICS

BLENDER:

  • Modeling the Hexagonal pattern.
  • Using deformers to re-shape the pattern.
  • Better performance with Collection Instances.
  • Curve Basher's "Wire Generator Tool".

KEYSHOT:

  • Super simple render setup (nothing fancy).
  • Basic Materials (again, nothing fancy).

AFFINITY PHOTO:

  • Make a basic render look awesome with Filters and Adjustment Layers (Depth of Field, Sharpness, Contrast, etc...).


ABOUT THIS PRODUCT

Duration: Aprox 1 hour of video recordings.

Speed: The tutorial runs at normal speed (there's a couple of obvious exceptions like when rendering the final image or creating all the little curves at the tips, which was a simple but very repetitive process so I spet that up a little).

Audio Commentary: Live commentary as I work on the project (English).

Software used: Blender (Modeling), Keyshot (Rendering), Affinity Photo (Post Effects).

Additional Assets: Blender Scene, Keyshot Scene, Affinity Photo Project.


FAQ

I don't own Affinity Photo, can I just used Photoshop instead?

Yes, they are both very similar photo-editing software and a lot of what you see still applies.

I don't own Curve Basher, can I still follow along?

Yes, I made a special video for those that don't have the addon (slower technique but still doable): https://youtu.be/gwHz3yR74G4
