Smoke's models

Hey there,

I've just started modeling and well.. I love it! I've made some basic models for you, I hope you like it!

I'm also taking requests because I don't really know what you guys need.. Don't think they're the best, but I'll give it a shot. Also, don't ask me to create a amazing giant statue or something, because I just started Tongue

RE: Smoke's models (Taking requests)

Keep working : ] You need to take heed of "texture stretching" though.

Download this:

Apply it to your material called lambert 1. That way all "new geometry" you create will have this material assigned to it as well.

Then as you create your UVs, make sure the "squares" are "square-shaped" (equal lenght on their sides). You can also try to have them of approximately equal size all across the model.

RE: Smoke's models (Taking requests)

Sure you can! Well, seeing as you're a maya user, you'd render out an AO map from Maya itself, google it, you'll find all the info you'll need! - Creating an Ambient Occlusion map in maya

A specular map is something you can create in any image editing software, basicly what you'll want to do is to make a black and white verision of your texture ( Specular maps can be coloured aswell but lets start simple with a black and white one ) Now you're going to want to make every area on your texture that you want to be shiny, white. And all the areas that won't be shiny, black. Grey for somewhere in between, the more white the image is, the more shiny it will be. Hope that helps!

So I just have to take an brush tool and paint everything black or white? And won't it ruin the texture?

No it won't ruin the texture, you save it out as a seperate file, you just want to make sure to use the same UV layout so that you can paint the correct objects white/black/gray/whatever

RE: Smoke's models (Taking requests)

Have a look at this picture right here! Top right is the diffuse map, under that you can see the specular map for the guitar, the metal parts are completely white to give off as much shine as possible, whilst the wood is more of a gray tone because wood doesn't shine quite as much!

I usually set up my naming conventions this way.

examplename_diff.dds <- Diffuse maps
examplename_spec.dds <- Specular maps
examplename_nrm.dds <- Normal maps

More examples!
