Hey everyone. Quick update with a latest preview of how the scene is going.
I dived into UV mapping and some materials.
Half of the panels still don’t have textures. I went with silver/chromium look tied up with some gold and golden trims.
Today I managed to go through four of the panels and texture them. I laid them out on the same UV texture set so they share bitmaps.
I’m still not completely happy with the detail, noises and colors on them, but I’m setting up everything with smart materials so I should be able to easily tweak all of them. I just need to UV map the rest tomorrow. Fun. :)
View of just the mapped panels plus the gate frame:
The background I started with a trim sheet so I can easily introduce some patterns later on. Though arguably it will need some geometry there too as to not be too flat.
I’ll need to work more in order to balance the amount of detail on each panel through their textures. I want some panels to have golden elements too but I am going slow in order not to overwhelm it. Also I want to map and texture to the existing level the other 5-6 panels and then I’ll start trying the same changes uniformly on all of them.
I also want to bake some normal stencils and decals that I will then stamp directly on some of the empty surfaces for some extra detail.
Thanks for reading.
Any comments are appreciated,
