===[COMMITTED]=== Musk ox (model / texture enhancement)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I launched Atlas recently to see existing animals, and I noticed one who looked a bit "weird" to me : the musk ox. In fact I found the texture a bit too "hand-painted" (sorry for the random English <:) ). I think I can put the accent on the fur aspect of this animal (so the texture will be totally new, and seamless of course).

I also though it could improve the silhouette to add extra tris on its belly with some fur texture with alpha...

By all means, go for it. There are a number of animals that would improve a great deal by having a better texture.

Try to keep the texture size reasonable though, and make optimal use of the image surface. The design doc advises 128 or 256 px for units (though that may be based on slightly older specs). So I'd guess that would be the same for an animal (as they aren't too different in size or in needed detail).

Thanks for wanting to work on this.

Ok so here is the reworked texture, nearly ok for me (I think I'll change the horns texture again, it looks *weird*):

Feel free to comment and suggest -_-

Looks cool =D Indeed there is something wrong with the horns, and I think there is a seam in the rear leg, are you planning to have alpha transparency ?

 

Btw since you are pretty good at it, can you consider recording your process / making a tutorial ?

Yeah @stanislas69 it's an idea, I could effectively make a tutorial, to share some tips B)

Progress of the texture:

It's previewed with 512 texture, and yes I used alphatest.xml for crispier alpha.

I have new friend from my country who wants to help us, maybe can you gift me little list that we must upgrade from units?

 

sorry for off topic

Thanks for your comments guys, I just wanted to say I'll be away for more than a week, due to holidays !

After that (still in holidays, but with internet access :P), I'll finish this animal, then start another, maybe the horse as you wrote.
There is a lot to do, but I guess the best is to ask because some threads seem old but are still relevant.

Of course! especially animals, I'd like to texture (and model) them.

In a previous thread, there were several requests about some of Micket's models...
