Some nice work there with really clean meshes, and the only real crit I have would be the addition of too much geometry on some f the more plainer objects.

All in all good work.

I was required to do 3 LOD versions for each object.

1. 1500 polygons and 512x512 texture map
2. 3000 polygons and 1024x1024 texture map
3. 5000 polygons and 2048x2048 texture map

What I have posted above are the first raw versions.

Looking pretty good.

That body paint program looks pretty interesting, how is the program to use and how is the transition between maya to body paint back to maya?

Once the model and texture are finished I open Bodypaint 3D. The process goes like this:

1. Export the mesh from Maya as an obj file.
2. In Bodypaint I import the mesh and the texture map (you can use pdf file format but I like working with jpg).
3. Using the projection painting mode I paint out the seams.
4. Save the texture map from Bodypaint and check it in Maya, if it looks good I'll call it a day.
