Polybook - Palo Piktor

Hello,

Looking at all that nice progress in your polybooks a decided to create one too. Maybe it will help me in more consistent work despite lack of time. 

For this year i made a decision not to create new projects until i complete the ones i have already started, otherwise it is a wasted time exept course exercises.  I also try to be more active here in the community to help others. Hope you will find here something inspiring, helpful or just interesting :)

Thanks for visiting :)

  • Do you remember this my reaction ?

    ppandoraspencil Hi Duncan. I appreciate your feedback, thank you very much. It will be easy to fix texture stretch and for the sofa i think i will sculpt some details.

    Well, i was wrong. It requires more work than expected and after couple of trials to create low poly version from it i decided to go from the start once again. It will take much less time to build it again from ground up than to try to fix. Also i dont like the meter area.

    Based on a new knowledge from creating gun for fps shooter which i watched couple times, i have now much better model with less geometry and ready for bake .

    Here is a new version of dosimeter device with all the details. Please, let me know what you think.

  • New version of dosimeter lookdev.


  • tthepainter  hello ! u r going heavy with rust dust .. i have the impression that there is no more reflections !?

    very good modeling and workflow btw

  • tthepainter definitely an improvement over the first one! The rust looks sweeeet 😃 As from what you've told about the game (dark underground facility, weird life forms) I think it will be a old and dirty facility right? Bit of an abanded / apocalypse feel to it? That's the idea I had in my head when you told it, and this amount of rust fits that feel.

    I do also notice, like Malhomsi, the dull reflections though. Your first model had more reflections on the paint an such, I think that would improve the look a lot.

    Good job! Keep it up 😊

    mmalhomsi Thank you for feedback. I think i will have to better balance rust on some parts. Yeah good point, i will reduce roughness for metal parts.

    smurfmier1985  Miranda, thanks for the feedback. It should be really rusty, but mmalhomsi is right. I forgot to bake higher res normals and downsize it to 2K. I had the feeling my UV layout needs improvement. 

    Here is a comparison of uv layout before and after. Bad news is, i will loose my textures so far and have to repaint them.

     That empty space marked with arrow is occupied with a glass which is flat plane only and therefore i didnt bake normals for it.

     

     

  • tthepainter the new layout is much better, now you're using all the texture space :) good luck with the painting! good practise ;)

  • smurfmier1985 Thanks :)

  • While waiting for dosimeter decals to arrive i switched to archviz to create textures for the oven. Substance painter viewport screenshot.

  • I have created new wooden material for cabinet and doors.

  • Testing my custom materials created in substance designer. Screenshot from blenders viewport.

    4 x 4K textures divided to bottom part, upper part, counter top/ back panel, decorations and inner parts.

    I still need to create a glass material and inner parts for upper cabinet.

    I have also prepared material for handles. I decided to model more of them to have some variety between them and not just one copy for all handles.

  • First render

    Added glass material, placed handles, lights for countertop, basic scene lighting setup. More to come :)

  • tthepainter Looking good!  The wood sections feel a bit much to me personally.  Maybe a nice cool (as in color) marble counter top could help to balance it out.

  • silentheart00 

    Hi, Silent. Thanks for the idea, but it will stay as is :)  just like in the refs i have. The combination is really pleasant in real life. This is very subjective.

  • Remember my dosimeter model ? It was quite some time ago since i last worked on it.  Finally i can now present you with the final approved version and a sketchfab version https://skfb.ly/6KUKO





  • tthepainter Fair enough.

    Maybe there could be a Version B...

  • tthepainter love the final dosimeter! Good work

  • tthepainter The Dosimeter model is pretty slick - should be great in your post-apocalyptic game.  Pretty cool :)

  • tthepainter Very cool! 👍
