It’s time to take your CGI skills to the next level.
In this CGI class, Ethan shows you how to produce a render of a TAG Heuer watch that matches Karl’s image in terms of lighting, styling, and photorealism.
Rather than modelling the watch from scratch, Ethan purchases a model to work with. To purchase the same TAG Heuer model that Ethan uses, click here.
One you have your model, you’ll start adding details, textures and lighting effects in Blender, using many of the techniques you covered in our Blender 3D Basics course. You’ll even learn how to create the table, screws, wrench and other elements of the final image.
Ethan recommends the following resources for textures and imperfections:
In this class:
- Creating CGI in Blender
- Lighting a 3D model in Blender
- Texturing in Blender
- Lighting reflective surfaces in Blender
- Working with pre-built assets in Blender
