FAQ

Here are some of the questions we hear from our students. If you still didn't find an answer to your own question, feel free to contact-us!

What is 'Paint Realistic Skin Texture Using Mari'?

Paint Realistic Skin Texture Using Mari is a complete course dedicated to artists seeking to improve their digital texture painting workflow on the creation of human skin.

Does 'Paint Realistic Skin Texture Using Mari' have instructor monitoring?

Yes, in the Premium version. Standard and Deluxe versions of the course are presented in the form of video lectures only. Although students will be able to ask questions and help each other on the facebook community group.

Does this course cover lighting/shading/rendering material ?

No, apart from one single bonus lesson. This course is only intended to teach the creation of textures that can be later on used by student on their DCC of preference. However, we are analyzing the creation of another course that will cover shading, lighting and rendering aspects of the human skin in Arnold/Maya, that may be released soon.

What will I be able to do after completing the course?

The student will be able to paint textures with the quality expected from major feature films or game studios around the world.

Are the lessons compatible with Mari Indie?

The videos are compatible with Mari Indie, except for the generation of 16 bit textures (not supported by Mari Indie). In this case, the student will still learn how to create the respective maps and can always export the final texture as 8 bit file.

Are the lectures streamable or downloadable?

All the videos are played through our online platform only. No downloads are allowed, this is to prevent piracy.

How does this course compare to other courses on the market?

We understand every artist has something special to share. The “Paint Realistic Skin Texture Using Mari” brings the unique workflow by Henrique Campanha, which implements a “research before doing” way of thinking, where you have background lessons driving the main texture generation.

Is the course content aplicable to 3d softwares other than The Foundry's Mari?

Yes. Although we mainly use The Foundry’s Mari on our texture course, students will be fully capable of translating the core knowledge taken from the lectures to other 3d painting softwares of their choice.

What are the payment options available?

We are currently accepting Paypal payments only. Be sure to create an account on Paypal if you want to purchase any of our courses.

I have never used Mari, will I be able to follow the course?

SOME MORE TESTIMONIALS

What have to say experts that already commited to their artistic improvement ?

The Foundry’s Mari is one of the best tools for texturing out there and there is not much material on the web for those who want a quick start. This course is simple, well explained and easy to follow.

Mariano Steiner, Character Artist, Rockstar Games

Henrique knows his tools and goes very deep into painting realistic skin with MARI, showing us his step-by-step process and practical knowledge, presented in an understandable way. Additionally he covers the background fundamentals to clean and prepare your textures along with a short, but clear introduction to MARI. Definitely an invaluable learning tool, with easy to follow techniques and tricks to become a better texture painter.

Sebastian Lauer, Senior Lookdev and Texture artist at Pixomondo

It’s been some time I’m looking for a more specific course like this, where everything is well balanced between software and theory lessons.

Henrique Campanha is one of the best 3D texture artists out there, besides being a great professional. By following some of his tips, you will be able to not only do better skin, but create better textures overall.

Abraão Segundo, Character Artist 2nd Chance Games & VFX

…during my latest works, I felt the need for improving my texture workflow, and learn Mari. This course is not only about the tool, but about textures itself, with a great artistic background.

Danilo Athayde, Freelancer Character Artist

After watching your course, I used it in the creation of my latest character.

I thought the course was really good. It was exactly what I was hoping for when I purchased it. It gave me a quick introduction to Mari and an overview of the basics and then got straight into the workflow. It provided concise, practical information using a quality example of a production workflow, while teaching the main tools used.
