How to Paint Textures in Mari VFX Software

3D modeling is essential to modern visual effects. For many commercials, TV shows, feature films and video games, its at the heart of the computer generated VFX experience as it brings backgrounds, characters and everything in-between to life. But models alone can't accomplish the storytelling feats audiences demand. Just as practical effects required painters, so too does CG require the talented artists behind your favorite entertainment to inject color.

In this video tutorial The Foundry's Deke Kincaid walks you through painting in the powerful application known as Mari, an industry standard responsible for colorizing everything from Avatar to The Witcher 3. Watch along as Kincaid works on the Cintiq 22HD for a full look at the process.
