What is the 3D Artist's Coloring Book?
The 3D Artist's Coloring Book is a project aimed at creating a library of assets and tutorials that beginner to intermediate artists can use to practice and sharpen their texturing skills in any texturing software. (Although my main focus for now will be in Substance Painter.)
I created the 3D Coloring Book to empower artists who are struggling with texturing in Substance Painter, and show them that ANYONE can create beautiful pieces of art with a little bit of practice and guidance.
I truly believe that YOU can drastically transform your texturing skills and become the artist that you know that you can be.
No more stress, no more confusion, the 3D Coloring Book is a resource specifically designed to take the stress out of texturing and to give you the confidence you need to texture any asset.
Not everyone can create professional-level assets to practice their texturing skills.
This is why I've ALSO created a book containing tons of ready to texture, high quality assets that even a complete beginner can begin practicing with.
This means you will save HOURS not having to worry about:
- Blocking out
- High poly sculpting
- Retopology & UV Unrwapping
- Baking & importing into Substance Painter (Or any other texturing software)
The assets are organized into two unique books: PBR & Handpainting.
Is it that easy?
Simply open the Substance painter file, and start texturing! No need to worry about creating the high poly, topology, sculpting and baking. It's already done for you.
Don't use Substance Painter? No problem!
I've also provided all of the .OBJ files & texture maps so you can use these blank assets in ANY texturing software.
Each page contains:
- Pre-prepared Substance Painter file, so you can start coloring right away.
- Raw object file, so you can practice texturing in any software.
- All texture maps
- Sample Renders of each asset, to give you inspiration and direction.
"Using the 3D Coloring Book pushes me into learning more and more about Substance Painter.
Each model has a bit of a different style to it, so you'll get both variety and a helping hand in what you could do with them texturing wise, and they aren't too hard that it becomes too complicated.
You can just work your way up and with each model you'll see yourself improving."
- Rob Linssen, 3D Artist
"I love the concept of the 3D Coloring Book so much!
It's really something the community needs, and for people like myself who feel that their modelling/sculpting skills are decent but the texturing needs more work it is extremely helpful!
I can just take a model and practice handpainted or PBR texturing straight away! I think it's an ingenious product."
