WHAT ARE WE MAKING?

This is a step by step tutorial on concepting a robotic character from start to finish (NO TIME-LAPSES). The tutorial runs at normal speed with real-time explanations of what I’m doing, so it’s better suited for beginners and not advanced users.

We use ZBrush to create a rough sculpt of the character and explore the design, we briefly transition into Keyshot for some fast and easy renders and we finalize the image with Affinity Photo to paint some panel lines and other effects to make our final image look awesome!

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 will still apply. Using Affinity Photo is preferable if you want to follow step by step but it’s not absolutely essential.

Can I use the 3D Model for printing?

The included 3D Character Model is not a water tight mesh designed for printing, though it could be with a few modifications, but those are up to you.
