Gnomon Training - Painting Realistic Skin in Mari 2.0 with Justin Holt
In this introduction to photorealistic texture painting, Justin Holt discusses how a trained eye for detail and keen sense of observation are essential attributes to being a successful texture painter in the the feature film industry. Using BodyPaint and Photoshop, Justin will demonstrate some of his easy to follow techniques and tricks of the trade in order to paint proper color, bump, displacement, specular and opacity maps. But more importantly, Justin will go through essential principles to maintaining a non-destructive workflow while painting textures to ensure a maximum amount of control and flexibility for any revisions and changes that may be requested after the maps are completed in a production environment. Additionally, Justin will complete the lecture with a quick run through in Modo to show how to quickly and easily generate polished renders that showcase all of the finely tuned texture work.
Tulane and Xavier Universities have singled out the environment as a major strategic focus for research and training for now and by the year 2000. In December, 1992, the Tulane/Xavier CBR was awarded a five year grant to study pollution in the Mississippi River system. The ``Hazardous Materials in Aquatic Environments of the Mississippi River Basin`` project is a broad research and education program aimed at elucidating the nature and magnitude of toxic materials that contaminate aquatic environments of the Mississippi River Basin. Studies include defining the complex interactions that occur during the transport of contaminants, the actual and potentialmore impact on ecological systems and health, and the mechanisms through which these impacts might be remediated. The Mississippi River Basin represents a model system for analyzing and solving contamination problems that are found in aquatic systems world-wide. These research and education projects are particularly relevant to the US Department of Energy`s programs aimed at addressing aquatic pollution problems associated with DOE National Laboratories. First year funding supported seven collaborative cluster projects and twelve initiation projects. This report summarizes research results for period December 1992--December 1993. less
