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]

How do you make those awesome looking textures??

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.

No problem mate :D
by the way I've been meaning to ask you, did you ever do any training, like online training? digital tutors, gnomon, eat3D or 3Dmotive? because your work is epic!
or did you just self teach for ages?

I studied game art for 2 years, and I've watched a lot of dvds from all of those.
But i'd been using photoshop for like 7 years or something before I even touched anything game art related so I guess that helped.

I've used photoshop for like 6 years, but mainly for making signitures/wallpapers/banners lol
and cool, I need to get more training to be honest.
it sucks that the universitys near me dont do game art/design.

Yeah check out nDo2 for that; [link]
It's very good for that kind of thing, but I'd still prefer getting my normal maps from high poly sculpts and bakes.

Thanks, I used Marmoset to set up the lighting and post processing and then take the shots of the final renders.

texture is awesome. But i don't like gun barrels, moreover, it's just my personal hobby so don't pay attention to it.
