Author Topic: Meet Mat: Modesto Perera Entry  (Read 3019 times)

I'm a Senior student at SCAD in Atlanta, and this is my first attempt at Substance Painter. I'm rather happy with how the head turned out while I was learning the program. Currently planning out what to do with the body now.

Here is my WIP, It's in 512 texture resolution atm.

Finally worked up the courage to get back up to 1024 texture sizes (older PC).

Realized I needed to bake maps for the body as well, and everything is looking getting closer to the intended look.
I have a few Ideas for MAT's base, but I'm going to work on the body some more before I commit to anything!

So originally I wanted to do some emissive wires or circuits under the corrosion but it kept coming out the wrong way.
In experimenting with different ways I can do circuits, I ended up with this monstrosity!
I think the red is a bit overkill, so I'll probably go with the blue since it seems like it would fit this forgotten MAT much more, let me know what you think so far!

Here is the final render, I had a lot of fun with the finishing touches, and ended up changing the entire base at the end of it all, it was originally going to match his body a bit more.

Here is the model over on Sketchfab!

Welcome to the Substance club! Great first project. I like how the blue on the base seems to have oozed out of the character.

A senior art student?  Cool.  Good luck as you head out into the cold cruel world exciting world full of opportunities.

Nice work.  I hope you make a habit of sharing future work here in the "Painter - Showcase" area.


You mentioned your struggles with an aging PC.  Here is a bit of timely advice from one of my internet heroes (Andrew Price - Blender Guru).  In short, don't be afraid to invest in making yourself more productive.

Thank you! I tried to strike a balance with mixing the two while not covering the logo too much, it's not a requirement but I personally liked treating it as if it were an actual Allegorithmic product. :)

Thank you, I'm actually graduating this quarter and I'll be building a new setup after! I'm planning to make many of my materials in Substance Designer so I can scale up my portfolio work textures, and of course this MAT.
