Sword and Shield Modeled

Work In Progress / 05 June 2020

I still need to UV tomorrow and hopefully block in the base color, took me the better part of a week just to model, even though this is a texturing course, it will be the least time spent in the process.

Wooden Chest Begin Texturing

Work In Progress / 30 May 2020

*WIP Art Creation for Game Final week. 

I realized that I have to go back and add some beveled edges for the corners at least. There are some normal map baking issues. and some AO issues where the geometry is an intersection.

I was learning more about how to use iD maps in Maya by using the Mesh Display > Apply Color to then export a Game Res with the colors applied. 

Wooden Crate Substance. Basic materials applied.

No Overlapping UV's


Wooden Chest HR, Pre-Sculpt

Work In Progress / 27 May 2020

Wooden chest modeled for subdivision smoothing preview in Maya. Holding edges will be deleted for the Game Res, this was to match the silhouette and to help baking before taking this sculpt into Zbrush and Sub Painter. 

3 Mode with and without wireframe.

Week 2 Turn in - Art Creation for Games - Full Sail Online Audit

Work In Progress / 18 May 2020

This week was not as challenging as the first one. There was mostly UV unwrapping to do with minimal modeling. I enjoyed this listening to music mostly. The big takeaway here was to use automap. 

UV lessons

For Curved shells - the steps are to select all curved edges. Cut. Then move and sew each piece onto a straight shell.
Unitize - First select all the edges of a tube shape. DESELECT all the edges you want to act as seems. Then move and sew

Select Continous Edge  - This is amazing
