Hi all.

It is my first 3d-model where i made UV, textures, render. A few years ago i made lighthouse in Cinema4d, but drag&drop a materials in Cinema4d is not considered  ;)


I used a following programs:

NVil  - for modelling and fixing UV + adding edges after texturing.
Unfold3d - for unwraping.
Gimp 2.8.4 -for texturing. A few years ago i tried Gimp but it seemed terrible and non-comfortable. I spent a few hours to understand this editor is better   . I using only diffuse map - 1024x1024.
Marmoset Toolbag - for rendering.

unfortunately, I did not do a good metal without specular. I've spent on these metal strips about 3 hours, but...
 
A comments and questions are welcome  ;D

Nice low poly, I would a use the "H+lmb" to smooth it out a bit.
I just learned about the "H+lmb" an hour ago.
 I tried the marmoset toolbag , but I do not have enough memory to run it. (4gb)

Nice low poly,
Thanks!

H+lmb = Ring Edges on default. But it is model used Smooth Group. Just very low poly - cylinder with 8 slices.

I have 2.5 gb RAM, Geforce 8600GT, Athlon 3000 - this is a very old computer :). Probably, your model has many of the polygons. How many a polygons in scene?

texuture could use a little work, looks like a straight up photo reference, with no local details. also are you going to do a specualr, gloss and normal maps for it?

I am using the 8400gs, I might try the toolbag again and see what happens.

Sorry, i dont understand :( Is it bad or good? =) You mean that i need a little to add a details?

I will plan middle-poly whith chamfer etc. I will be to learn how to do gloss map. Unfortunately, I did not do a good metal without specular. I've spent on these metal strips about 3 hours, but...
For normal map i need hi-poly --> 1000 faces. I'll see.

johnnybevo,
I read message into your thread about H+LMB. I need was to switch on vertex mode. It is cool, thanks!

You are very welcome.

I am downloading the toolbag right now.
I also took a look at the gallery on their website, that was impressive.

by local details, i mean there is no edge wear and scrapes, or any occlusion or rust and dirt build up in the crevices such as around the metal straps that hold it together etc. Also need to material definition going on.

Passerby, the barrel in the "clear room" for repairing HDD

To all:
I tried to add a little light on an edges. Which a variant you like? Or the original better?

In my opinion, the texture resolution is way too high for such a lowpoly model. There's also some distortion going on, presumably from making each loop a straight line in UV space. Can you post a screenshot of the UVs? The look of the barrel could profit, if you'd make each of the 8 sides a single board in the texture, so that the planks meet at the edges. With low poly meshes like this, I wouldn't aim for a photo realistic texture, but rather use some comic style.

Yes, i see it too  :(  The barrel is angular and i  straighten uv, and so here is distortion(up and down of the barrel). How to work with angular UV into GIMP? Scale, Perspective?

I can't to draw :( If only to use any a artistic filter.
Thanks, Vaquero for  criticism!

Looking very good.

I think those do look better. Makes the metal stand out more.

Which of the two? Dark or Light?
