Tutorial: Barbarian - Xgen for Characters

17 ratings

Welcome to my latest Tutorial, Barbarian - Xgen for Characters.

This tutorial is an update of my older Xgen tutorial, with more advanced techniques and a much broader variety of different grooms. I will show you multiple techniques to help you achieve a believable groom for your characters.

In this tutorial, I will be going over my entire process when it comes to generating a believable groom for your character. The process is covered in-depth, with every step explained with narration, in real-time. 

There is a lot of content in this tutorial, but I have labeled the chapters in a way to make it easy for you to skip ahead or jump to the area which interests you most, without having to watch the entire process. I did this to make sure a beginner has all the information they need, or a more experienced artist can jump to the information they are seeking.

By the end of the tutorial, you should have the knowledge and techniques to apply realistic grooms to your own characters.

NOTE: To make sure this tutorial did not exceed a ridiculous amount of content, I do some tweaking of the grooms off camera. I always make sure to come back in the following chapter showing you the tweaks that were made to get the desired results. The foundation and every tool I use to generate the groom are recorded.
