Designer & 3d Artist, Nikki Candelero, shares with us today a bit of insight gained during work on a current project. I can easily say Nikki is a certified great guy and real fun to be around with as all visitors to AD#3 in Venice last year can say. We will have the pleasure of meeting him again at AD#4, but till then he shows us how to make a realistic towel… the same way as he made it for an Italian luxury bathroom project he is working on. Enjoy this article as he describes the use of Photoshop, Marvelous Designer, 3dsmax and V-Ray.
Following up on Eduard Caliman‘s recent Mills 3D Chair Modeling How to, he now showcases how he made the Bohemian Sofa. Eduard actually did this stunning sofa designed by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso in 3ds max fully, but then went on exploring making the capitonné with Marvelous Designer and here he shares his process as well as the resulting model and textures. Enjoy!
Back in January I featured Ramon Zancanaro’s ‘Second Floor, Block 1…’ work featuring amazing 3d fabrics utilizing an application named Marvelous Designer. Ramon promised to come back and share his 3d Fabric / Cloth workflow using Marvelous Designer with us. It took some time, but today I’m happy to publish this article about how he used it to create various fabric elements in the scene you see in the image above. Enjoy!
Ramon Zancanaro mentions in his latest forum thread that he’s been “far from the 3d by long time…”, and I ask – Where Were You??? I would like to go too!!! Just glancing over his latest renders tells us it was a good place to be. This scene was intended as a cloth study, and a remarkable one in turned out.
