some more time in z, and a bit of deja-vu. I uv mapped two or three items, but am going to sculpt before doing the rest. Ive already got some texture stretching. The cloak is a real challenge to uv well for me, I think I can get away with most of the other parts. Heres an update of the 'fisherman'. I dont know why I've called him that. I kind of took inspiration from the himalayan character from unchartered 2.

just a quick afternote to this thread. Been playing around with zmapper, looking at normal maps and cavity maps. Safer I thought, than displacement. Heres some of what I got in Maya. Still not there (the model doesnt help), but a little bit.

i think this thread died a little while ago, but i didnt think it was worth starting another thread for this question, so if anyone reads this....

... i heard on a tutorial last night that displacement maps behave better on sub d surfaces than poly surfaces. can anybody validate this?
