After getting a 360 and wasting a good 4 months of my life away, I got back to work and finished up an old project.
What I Don't Like about this Piece:
-I should have mirrored the normal map. Didn't know a good method at the time. Will certainly give it a shot next project.
-Realtime Rendering. The thing looked pretty decent inside Source, but I'm still having a hard time getting it to look good inside of Max's viewports. Definately has to do with my lowpoly geometry and normal map.
- It's not made of win.
Hellboy's revolver, The Samaritan. Made the movie version, coz it makes a 'little' more sense that the hilarious, yet awesome comic version. Learned a lot doing this thing, and could spend another week tweaking it, but I'm gonna move on and make something a lot more pretty-like.
Many more pictures of the gun, including a 360 Turntable Render
on my hilariously shitty website!
Thanks for any comments and criticism! I like my criticism like my sex, with coffee beans and a sock.
(Oh, and I'll post higher res shots of the texture work soon.)
