Turret by samdrewpictures Turret by samdrewpictures
Made for a tafe assignment. The idea was to make a turret in any style for an RTS game, with a tri limit of 3500. The best 3 of the class win a prize of some description. :D

Hope you like ittttttttt

Programs used; Maya, xNormals, Photoshop, Marmoset

If you're interested you should check out my friend/classmate Renee's turret too; [link]

Anything you want to know in specific? The best overall advice I can give is probably to work non-destructively (layer masks!!), think realistically (does an edge that never gets bumped on anything need heaps of scratches? nope) and less is more (noisy textures can get ugly fast).

Actually that model had a lot of scratches.

But on the masks, do you use them for scratches too?(fill the layer with bright texture and then remove everything with the mask?)

Yes it does and if I were to re-do this I'd definitely change that. I made this nearly 2 years ago now.

And yes I do use layer masks to do scratches, rust, grunge, dirt etc.

this is just... cool XD
it's great how you kept the tri-count around 3k and making that insanely cool texture making your model top-notch :D
how long did it take you to create that texture?

Thanks a lot :)
I can't really remember how long it took. This was made a while ago, but looking at it now I could probably bust out a similar texture in <1 day.
