Release date:2022, March

Duration:02 h 08 m

Author:Gavin Manners

Skill level:Beginner


Exercise files:Yes

Explore the efficiency of kitbash libraries as a time-saving tool for generating quick concepts, enhancing background set-dressing, and adding functional details to hard-surface models. Join Gavin Manners in this workshop to learn the step-by-step process of designing and constructing your personalized hard-surface kitbash library.

Gavin’s workshop kicks off by guiding you through sparking initial ideas and crafting a self-brief. Learn the art of gathering references in preparation for asset creation in Blender. Discover techniques for maximizing kitbash parts by creating subassemblies and understand the concept of exponential idea generation.

The workshop delves into the creation of mech designs based on your brief, emphasizing the effective utilization of your custom kitbash library. Witness a demonstration of a simple lighting and rendering setup before progressing to the final paint-over process, resulting in a polished piece of concept art.

While the primary focus is on mechs, the principles shared in this workshop can be applied to various forms of hard-surface design. By the end of the workshop, you’ll possess the skills to develop multiple personalized kitbash libraries, continually expanding them throughout your artistic career.

Note that this workshop is designed for individuals with an interest in hard-surface design but assumes a basic knowledge of Blender and Photoshop. It is not a beginner’s software tutorial.

Included with this workshop are the kit created for the tutorial, the mech design 3D files, and the final paint-over PSD files, allowing you to closely examine each element created throughout the entire process. Elevate your hard-surface design skills with Gavin Manners’ expert guidance and build a valuable toolkit for your artistic endeavors.
