"TF2 Sentry Gun" Modeling - Day 7

by

We've finally come to the end of the modeling section for the TF2 Sentry Gun project. In the seventh and final day, we'll finalized the model by building in the last few remaining pieces in preparation for the start of UVMapping.

In this tutorial authored by Chris Tate, you will learn how to model, uvmap and texture a high poly version of the level one Sentry Gun from Team Fortress 2, using a combination of blueprints, images and video reference. This tutorial is aimed at intermediate to advanced artists, but any artist, regardless of skill level should easily be able to follow along.

    In the second and final part, you'll UVMap the Plesiosaur using the free program Roadkill, and then move back into ZBrush to texture the model using ZBrush's awesome Polypainting features. From there it's onto baking and converting that polypaint data onto the UVMapped model, using xNormal's outstanding projection tool-set. And finally, you'll construct the shaders back in Maya.Read More…

    "TF2 Sentry Gun" UVMapping - Day 3Thumb
    Today we'll continue to concentrate our efforts on uvmapping and work on completing the rear leg sections. This is without a doubt the most challenging part of the model to Uvmap (Yay!) So we'll dive right in, and begin by manually optimizing our high-res meshes. This step will not only reduce the of amount geometry in the scene, but make the mapping process much more quick and efficient.Read More…
