I got some days of from work so going to try to finish this scene.
The idea is about a Goblin who makes a magic clockwork.
I have him pretty finished for modeling and is just about to start to UV-map him.
Then I will do the background.
I want to have about this feeling in the scene.
This was my sketch when doing the head
And here is the wireframe of work in progress
And also got some questions.
Think I am going to Nomalmap him. This is my workflow who might not be the best. I do half the piece then export it to Z-brush. There I add details. Then export the normal map to maya and apply it. Then I mirror the geometry.
-Sence no UV can overlap I waste kind of much texture space due to the fact I cant tile.
-It is kind of painstaking to do a color map in photoshop who match the normal map.
-If I do other way around and paint color map first and sculpt after that inside z-brush you can hardly see what you are doing.
So the questions.
-Shall i make a high poly sculpt inside Z-brush instead then export the obj file and use transfear map inside maya?
-Is there a better workflow then the one I described above?
-About my model, how is the use of polygons..too much too little detail.
