cheers joed


right, here are the final textures for the models:
1 512x512 colormap for the dragon. Added a scaley effect on the skin to break up the uniform green. Added a horn. All hand-drawn except for the mottled effect on the wing membrane.

1 512x512 colormap for the samurai. All hand-drawn except the symbols on his jacket (front and back), the japanese writing on the sheath and the blade which was modified from a reference image.

A wireframe of the final model pose including number of tris.

Hey T1ck135! Your model turned out wonderfully. Under 3000 tris? You're crazy, dude!

Thank you for all your helpful insight and support!

I think it kind of sucks that most people used high poly models, while you kept your character under 3000 tirs. It came out very well. I think it can compete with the other models just because you did keep it to a low poly count. Nice textures too. The process of your character creation was cool to check out.

cheers joe, much appreciated

I thought that too about 2/3rds of the way into the challenge. Maybe I should have done a high res model first (for cinematic scenes) and created normal maps to put onto a low poly version.
The thing is I enjoy low poly, keeping it on the edge with as little detail as possible and letting the textures do the work.
next time though... *evil cackle*
