At JB Makes Stuff, we specialize in creating high-quality 3D art for use in virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and games. Here's a typical process we follow when working on a new asset:
Conceptualization We start by working with our clients to conceptualize their project and define its goals. This might involve creating storyboards or mockups to visualise the final product and determine the overall look and feel.
Modeling Next, we use 3D modeling software such as Blender or Maya to create the individual objects and characters that will be included in the scene. We take care to ensure that all models are highly detailed and realistic, as this is crucial for creating immersive experiences in VR and AR.
Texturing Once the models are complete, we add texture to them by applying images or patterns to give them a more lifelike appearance and to add detail. This is where we define the material each part is made of, age, story, life cycle and more details that are visible on everything we see in our world.
Rigging In order to make the 3D models move and behave realistically in the VR/AR application or game, we rig them with a skeleton and set of control points. This allows us to easily animate the models and to respond to user input.
Animation After the models are rigged, we create the animations that will be used in the VR/AR application or game. We use software such as Maya or Blender to define the movements and actions of the 3D models, ensuring that they are smooth and realistic.
Integration Finally, we integrate the 3D models and animations into the VR/AR application or game using software such as Unity or Unreal Engine. This involves setting up the virtual environment, lighting, rendering and more, as well as defining the interactions and behaviors of the 3D models within it.
At JB Makes Stuff, we are passionate about creating the best possible 3D art for our clients. We have a team of highly skilled artists and technologists who work together to ensure that every project is a success.
