Learn the complete pipeline for creating a game asset from start to finish! In this course, we’ll take a nostalgic dip into the past by recreating an authentic 1930’s home radio. We’ll begin by constructing our high polygon mesh (often called sub-d modeling), utilizing several methods to create the base mesh and accompanying finer details. Once that is complete, we’ll use our original high poly as a base mesh to create our low poly mesh.
We’ll then UV unwrap the mesh to create clean UVs. We’ll take the info from the High Poly model to render out our normal maps, and the UV layout will be used as the schematic for creating the texture in Photoshop. We’ll complete the radio asset with finishing touches in the material, which should provide a complete “A-to-Z” foray into the 3D art creation pipeline.
