This is my first post here, i follow the forum for a while, but never posted anything.
My english is not so good, i am sure the text will be full of errors
Well, i do not have much experience with modeling, texture and especially with game art but it is something i like.
I use zbrush (learning) and sometimes i do some sculpting with real clay.
I created a flying insect in zbrush to try to make a low poly version, bake maps and display in the 3ds max viewport (im using Xoliul Shader *I LOVE IT*)
this is still WIP
I'm having problems with specular, still not sure how to set a good specular and gloss. I've read quite a lot about and understand the process but i'm having difficult in practice.
but I'm trying to solve this by trying different things and training
-High Poly Zbrush (I started with ZSpheres in ZBrush, i think it is more intuitive to start with high)
-Retopo(low) and UV 3ds max
-XNormal (normal, polypaint to tex, cavity, AO)
I'll put some screens here and i hope to receive some criticism
Low version with 2831 tris
this was the rough sketch (the notes are in portuguese)
Low poly max viewport with Xoliul Shader
(I want an iridescence effect on the wings and also in the eyes. I used the gloss map to give that effect, but do not know if that's how it is done)
