I’ve been thinking of involving type into my workflow for a little while, to see how the process of importing a vector art file into Max works. Turns out it works out incredibly smoothly – its an uncomplicated business. The above involved a little bit of a boolean operation, but this doesn’t really add too much to the whole process.
Having succeeded with simple geometry, I wanted to see how it would work with a more complicated model (below). This one involved a boolean in Zbrush – inflating the test and then subtracting it from the figure. I just thought of a more effective way to do this (by projecting the text onto the figure before extruding it, so you preserve the curve of the figure in the text) Oh well. I believe the text here reads “Stop Thinking”, but seeing as I was relying on Google Translate who, really, can tell?
