Default (Sword)New Texturing Style - 02-15-2012, 10:45 AM

I have been messing around with blender and gimp a lot lately. I found out I could export the UV layout of my models, which I figured I could use this in gimp to do my texturing instead of doing it all in blender. Well, it worked, and I believe i'll start doing all my objects like this. It allows a more crisp texture and allows more freedom to edit the texture. So here is a new sword I modeled using a few new techniques I found out about.

Not bad. Could use some optimization, though. 1.2 megs is kind if high for a single model.

Haven't had one of these for a while...

Feedback...

Practice Sword 1

Pros:


Great Texture
Good Center Axis
Cool Style


Cons:



Overall

95/100 by Chrome Games


There wasn't much wrong with this model. I didn't want to give it a 100, because it just didn't feel that easy to rotate and manipulate. It's very good, but it just quite wasn't there.

If you mean to the game engine and physics, sadly no. I only get to spend a few minutes here and there since I work full time and normally lots of over time on top of that, I rarely get to spend the time on my hobbies

EDIT: and Mr. K, Since you are the model connoisseur, have you thought about making tutorials on how to increase model quality in a well structured and well thought out written or documented series?

In terms of modeling there are thousands of tutorials for this out there on the interwebs somewhere. If you mean specifically to suit Alice, then I haven't but I could.
Problem is, if it's teaching how to make objects I can only do it in 3ds Max, Maya, and Hexagon.

How about to optimize models for the use of Alice? Such as creating proper origins, converting/creating "good" (opinionated of course) looking low poly models, splicing(splitting, parenting etc..) a model to make for easier use in Alice in general?
