This was a self challenge to learn Substance Painter and Designer in unison to create a highly detailed prop. This particular lute I found in a Japanese ancient art book and found quite fascinating; though there are only a handful of high quality photos of the original, I managed to piece together what each angle looked like.

All materials (rosewood, mother of pearl, amber, and tortoiseshell) were created from scratch in Designer and applied in Substance. Finally, I rendered the model in Toolbag.
