text is 4000 ive got the polys down to around 12000 now sound any good ?


how many objects this sort of size could populate a scene very roughly in say a ps3 game (like crysis 2 mush have a million polys in the levels)

well, it's hard to say as far as how many in total(scene)

but, 12,000 for the boat is great. Make sure you are counting tris.

Throwing my hat in the ring...

My "Character modeling for Games" class has me doing a character that I've decided should look like someone in particular. Here are the current Wips. Let me know who you think it is, so I can decide if I'm on the right track.

Well, I don't recognize a likeness in the face, could just mean I don't know the person you're modeling it after, I do however recognize the overall design as Marc [BlueFley] Brunet's "Blanche" character. Her arms are looking just a tad thin, otherwise looking good.

Warlock, thanks for the crit. I did forget to mention that it's not my concept, but since I basically never concept, I don't think anyone would think I was trying to take credit for that. I collect concept art, and sometimes the file in my concept art folder is just called Hi_Rez_01 or something stupid like that, so I didn't know who's it was.

Here she is starting to get UVs for the low poly mesh. I like to set up two rainbow gradients, one darker and rotated 90 degrees, checker boarded to figure out UV space. It's a pretty easy setup for in MAX, give a shout if you'd like to know how I make it (and can't noodle it out in your head).

I rarely keep up in here anymore, I mostly tend to hang out in Polycount. But here is a recent render of what I am working on: The Imperial Fist Fellblade: Iron Breaker

warning : flaccid goat penis..

posting anything in here is usually the kiss of death for me but since I've done virtually nothing but rigging and telling developers how to write a 3d engine for the last 6 months I figured I should prove I still know which end of a wacom pen does what...

concepting as I go (oh dear...)
