Pipeline process


Being proposed to make a handmade rock texture

Looking for images in Google and find a building rock texture


Creation of a main texture and
 different maps for the texture: albedo, ambient occlusion, normal (bump), color, etc.

Import the maps to Materialize, adjusts the parameters, improve the texture maps and generate a material.


Preview testing
Import the material into Marmoset Toolbag and applied to a 3D sphere (Quixel Sphere).

Preview rendering
Render an animated preview of the 3D sphere with the material

STATUS: done

(minor fixes can still be made if given enough support)


- undo lineart so the texture can have better 3D depth
- use better brush adjustments to avoid aliasing
- any minor suggestion from people
- apply Liam Collod's advice


The prize I want to win with this entry in The Rookies is support from the people who can see my talent.

- kind words to keep me motivated: cheering, praising, etc.
- feedback: constructive and polite advice to improve my art
- beta-testing: test the pilot-projects I make if they are meant to be used for a pipelined workflow (ex. textures)
- learning resources: sources of learning in a free-paced way, if possible
- exposure: expose my talent to more people via social and job media, or expose those people to me so I can talk to them
- texture proposals: ideas to improve textures or make new ones
- art proposals: how to improve my creativity and use it in more ways
- career advice: how to offer my talent to people
- selling advice: how to sell my art in the best way possible (Gumroad, Ko-Fi, Patreon, YouTube, etc.)
- money: commission requests, job offers, patronizing, etc. (I am eating from food coupons, ngl lol)
- everything else: any other type of support you can offer

Future projects

I want to use my talent to create anything that can make people happy.
I have been (I still am) in a blocked situation, but people is helping me survive without even knowing.
And I want to pay people back with my good intention, empathy, hope, creativity and effort.
