let the texturing commence!!

decided to use bodypaint over zbrush for this texturing job as its a medium closeup of hugh and wanted it to really pop and seams seem to always be an issue in zbrush.

ok a few hours of look dev on my textures and here are my results that im happy with. good times. good times.

oh and here is a pose test for the whole scene that im planning on. maybe just one character will remain of the victims of my feme fatal. a poker game gone wrong maybe?

just a quick first pass render in maya with normal maps and low poly models. looking a bit gritty as far as normal maps go but some love and time with them should be all it needs. i also dont want to texture these models just let the polys and normals do the talking.

nearly done modeling the jacket and most of the clothes now. not easy to pull the detail out in the mini picture but if u click it u get a better feeling of whats going on. big love to my followers :D

Let the destruction begin. hahahahaMWHAHAHAHAHAAHA *que organ music* which is actually playing on TV as I type. spooky. C&C always welcome as per usual. ive gone for the bad chop shop look. different coloured paint on the doors and boot. and seperately modeled peeling paint. i think the floor is distracting however so cobble stones and sidewalk are my next step.

re-think of the colour scheme there. will add spec and interest maps to liven the paint up once im done playing and decided on a colour. any input on that would be great.

also the ground needs a few hours of love. i was thinking cobbles.

have a few days grace before rendering and tweaking starts in ernest so i thought i would throw some hardbody modeling into the mix, keep it fresh. without further ado i introduce, the circa 1957 Chevy Bel-Air saloon. sex on wheels.
