Recommended Posts

darn, this is soooo excellent Enrique! Great process and great result, I love those shields. Blender + Gimp : :) sweet potential indeed.

Here are the .PSD files for those who want to color them :)

Contains: bronze and metal variation, normal map (want to test how they look shiny and normal mapped in game) and a mask for easy area selection coloring. They're already scaled for in-game use. If someone wants the 512x512 files just ask for them ^_^.

Tips: For showing metal parts, just erase bronze layer parts. For player color, erase bronze parts, desaturate the same metal parts, and convert white to alpha.

ah, I thought you worked on Gimp mostly.

It was done in GIMP, I posted .PSD versions so photoshop users could also use them (GIMP also supports .PSD files) :P

and i was post some shields for the Game(that have Alpha PSD) and other from other purposes .

in Zip are Woodeen Shields, and Bronze even Iron/Silver. with my own Eagle. is important have many Eagles for represent mostly of Ptolemy┬┤s Pharao.

is a shame best Eagle are copyrighted. and is a new version of ancient(rebuild). can someoneelse can doit Eagle in 3d with best Caracteristic of otherr, i dont think that Infrage the Copyright. and again my mistake for Flirckr i think all downloadable have copyright.

Excellent work on the PSDs, Art Dept Leader Enrique! ;) I think #12 can be the basis for a new Macedonians civ emblem. (y)

Everything is awesome, except the Eagle (#2, #13, #14), methinks. I think Lion's eagle has a better shape. Lion, could you post a PSD with just the eagle on its own layer all by itself? Just the vector (no layer styles).

Tried my hand at adding a few to the game. They look great man.

:) happy to see they look great. Have you tried normal-mapping them? I think the bumps would look great with the specular effect.

Committed tons of new shields. Great job so far guys. (y)

Normal mapping is very difficult to see, so much so that it's not really worth it to put them on the shields.

Meshes for oval shields (thureos and wicker variations) done. Tarantine shield base texture finished. Added kepher and eagle emblems to the metal shields I did before for ptolemies. Thureos .PSD template due for this afternoon.

Meshes and some of the possibilities of the template:

I'm going to need references/info for weapons/helmets/hats.... whatever props the ptolemaic units are going to need (if they're not borrowed all of them from greeks that is)
