Make a Goblet

Recommended Posts

This tutorial is available as a PDF. Click here to view or download it

The inspiration for this came from HERE and HERE

 

PlugIns Needed:

NormalMapPlus

Shape3D

 

I've included some textures so there's less screenshots.  
The original starting texture is black lines/ circles and then one of the Outline Object plugins to give a white edge.

Experiment and make your own ... use the included images as templates for placing

Start with a 800 x 600 canvas >>> Add a New Layer Import the Goblet Texture 1 image that's below

Select the image >>> Click outside with the Magic Wand >>> Ctrl + I to Invert the Selection

Import the image below onto a New Layer.  The same process was done using NormalMap Plus

Switch to the First Texture layer you duplicated ... should be above the background layer

Import the image below onto a New Layer and Duplicate it

And you're finished.  Toast yourself if you made it through.  Delete the background layer.  Flatten Image.

Using different PlugIns to change colours.

@Seerose and @lynxster4 ... great results and nice how you've both put your own tweaks on it with the different embossing effects.  Honestly no need for thanks ... I learn as much writing them.

 

I was hoping to get to grips with Gradient Mapping to give realistic metal ... but it's crashed 3 times today when I've been making custom files so I'm giving up for now

 

@dipstick ... a drinking vessel is a drinking vessel ...

You are much too modest.   :P     Your efforts are greatly appreciated, because I'm learning new things, too!

 

 

Merci @Eli for the rep point!    <3

 

Impressive goblet @AndrewDavid   :)

Thanks EER

 

@Seerose ... and @AndrewDavid - Impressive results.  The bowl is a very nice touch Seerose, and love the textures.  The patina on that is great Andrew ... I hadn't thought of a two tone texture and it really works.  Nice job folks

Love the tutorial and had much fun experimenting :D.  All those dials to play with ..... Eeeek!  Amazing that you can work them out.

@Pixey ... glad you enjoyed it ... just like I've enjoyed those glossy grapes :D  Nice embossed effect.  Great shiny image

If I was honest ... personally me, myself, I only understand S3D about 25% can give, so very much more to understand about it.  The Camera Angle option for example does some interesting things.

 

My plan is to give 3 different perspectives to the goblet.

Not sure if it's wanted or even needed but I've published the xml settings for a different perspective.  If nothing else it shows the different settings needed to go from a square on image, to one with slightly more 'character'

Would be great if one could make the 3-D object (model) then manipulate it in all three axis in a 3-D space. Unfortunately that is way beyond the abilities of this otherwise excellent plugin....

@dipstick ... wouldn't that be cool.  Currently I use other programmes for that sort of thing but if someone ever wrote a plugin like that ...  the Nobel prize would be the least they deserve  :trophy:

 

Shape3D mated with the 3D Object plugin could possibly produce offspring I'd like to see :radioactive: (Not that I have a clue what I'm talking about)
