Hey guys, thanks for the support. Tbh I had a bit of a rough time falling asleep last night cos a was kind of worried/upset that I might get flamed for "copying somebody's idea" when I did no such thing. I had checked the workshop at 4 a.m. before I started working to make sure there wasn't one already made. By the time the other artist messages me on ploy count at 10 pm to show me the same link Vlad posted, I had already finished making my LOD 1, UV, and had 90% of the texture/materials done. I figured I had already gone to far to just stop so I finished it anyways. I figured that at the end of the day, if people don't like that mine came out a bit after the fist one then just just won't vote for it, and if valve doesn't like it then they just won't accept it.
I ended up running into some issues with the uploader not recognizing the geometry in the fbx file so I wasn't able to take in game shots last night. But I had already finished the workshop thumbnail and whatnot so I can you you that if you wanna see a bake.
Baked in xNormal, rendered in Marmoset. Had a bit of trouble cramming it into the poly budget but it came out alright.
Sadly I won't get a chance to work on it till either really late tonight or most likely tomorrow so ill update the tread then with some more pics and a link to the workshop.
