Learning texture
« on: June 21, 2014, 01:12:27 pm »



Ive been playing with max lately and trying to understand the UV mapping process. So i got that piece of machenery from sketchup warehouse, imported it in max and tried the get the uv for one wheel  and then texture it. On the left you can see the the original untextured wheel. I ended up remodeling the wheel (twice) cause it had some defects that could not be fixed easaly.

Dont know if ill do the whole vehicle but it will be good drill before i take on Pyton's btr80.

Can't wait. I've been wondering about those shiny gloss Outerra wheels for a while, now.

Yeah its a small mediaval town, again found on sketchup warehouse. I did some texture in sketchup but kind of got frustrated after a while with the tools available for texturing.

Tried out some more ideas for texturing. I had to do it on a simple object, cause it's too easy to get confused with a complex UV and all the layers in photoshop. I'm really happy with some of the effects like the rust with the smear around it. It almost all came out in an accidental way at the end of the process, by switching on and off some layer. So i'm not sure i could replicate these effects starting again from scratch. I will have to study the photoshop file to try to understand what i did right.

Now i need to get some welding on this thing.

I worked on the speculars and normals mostly at this stage. I think the welding is convincing enough though i'd like it to have it with sharper edge.

One thing that i'm really happy that i discovered, again by accident, is how to make slightly rounded corner using the normals. It's easier to see on top image, but it makes a nice soft highlight where two angles meet.

Its nicely convincing .... the best welding i ewer saw was the work of Igor Gorkovenko:

The details are pretty crazy! there's what, 3-4 millions polygons in there? This is a great welding reference. I will sure use it.

I wonder if he used displacement map for the textured stuff or if he added these in sculpt 3d

Not sure ... he said on a forum, that certain stuff was made in Z-brush, but im not sure if he used it just to bake a really good texture-set out of it applied in a better rendering software, or its the real deal in insane poly-count.

Hey thanks AH-GD, these are kind of references i like to find.

Think i got it right this time (the welding). It's really not obvious when the weld in the middle of a seam and in a concave angle. Took me a while to figure it out, though I find it works best when the sun is at a 45 degree angle.
