For those of you that dont know, [url="www.polycount.com"]Polycount[/url] and [url="www.cgchat.com"]CgChat[/url] are having a friendly competition between themselves. The comp is to model a futuristic War General, and you've got 5000tris and 1024 worth of texture space (including normaal, bump, spec and just about whatever else you want) play with.
I've entered and joined the CgChat team, who are doing the 'good guys'.
This is my mesh so far, i'm going for a Amreaican Civil War era look, with some sci-fi mixed in, though i think most of that will come across in the texture.
I'm not entirly happy with it, and I blame that on the fact i havn't done any character modeling in almost a year, and that i havnt modeled for normal mapping before so i'm not entirly sure of what im doing.
That, and I'm that great a character modeler to start with. Still, i enjoy it and i'm not going to improve if i dont keep doing it.
There's two and a half weeks of the comp left, which means it's about time i moved onto the high poly wether i'm happy with it or not, since it's taken me this long to get the mesh done with all my other distractions. Hopefully i'll make the deadline though, even if it means comming straight home from work and barricading myself in front of my computer for the next couple of weks.[:)]
