Wanted to share a prop I've been working on. I've used this piece to get better w/ my spec maps and normal maps. Crits and feedback welcome!

You can view a turn-around of the prop and its maps here (as well as my lame first attempt):

Great Box. I don't really have any criticism, i just imagine that box in a game, and think you've done a great job.

If this box was real I would keep it in my room. One thing you might want to still think about, (though I assume your done) is where water has dried more than other areas that have been wet and have water stains. http://www.sindone.org/images/scient/alone.jpg

SHEPEIRO great now add some eye holes and an interioir, i demand it. Interior, check! Eye holes? Pro booleans here we come. Now all I need is a character to put under the box :)

Nice box :)

I don't think that you need to cut the main part of the box as well, unless you pull those parts around a bit. It'll be nice to see the waterstains. Will this be going into anything, or is it just by itself?

Thanks guys!

Synthesizer, the top flaps look a lot better in the turn around. Then you can actually see there are inside flaps as well. I'm just doing the piece for the portfolio for now.
