View Full Version : First low-poly char model, textured
04-16-2008, 08:17 PM
Hi everyone, I'm new here and would like to get feedback on something I've been working on. This is my first character model, done low-poly. I unwrapped and texture painted it as well. Basically I'd like to know what went well and what could be worked on, both for the modeling and the texture. I've heard from friends that the face seems a bit pale, so I'll probably add more to that. I'll probably add additional images, like turn-arounds and such later today, as this is the only image I have right now. Thank you for viewing!

looks nice to me, but the texture is way too symmetrical imo and you used up alot of UV space. for example; the face is exactly the same on the left as it is on the right, and yet you unwrapped his whole face in the map. if you want him to look symmetrical (which i think would be okay considering how low poly he is) i would mirror the right or left side of his face in the UV and put it over the other side so you use half the amount of uv space and get the same exact effect youre getting right now. that way you could cut the size of the texture down a bunch. what is this for? just fun? pretty good so far

Thanks for the tips, yoyo! I did this for a 3D class, but would like to learn more on the subject, so I will be working more on this on my own time. I didn't follow much on tutorials, and didn't really have a lot of knowledge on the subject of modeling characters and so forth. I pretty much worked with information and tips my friends had given me, but I understand what you mean, and I will take that into account on projects I have in the future :) Thank you again for the critique!
