Old School

Game Art Challenge #21
Subject Ė Old School



Thread Naming: Your Name Ė Old School
Keep all questions in this thread

Never forget where you come fromÖ.

With the release of the PS4 and Xbox One, video game graphics have never looked better. But letís not forget where these games started. 8 bit video games got us going. Games like Super Mario Brothers and Donkey Kong, kings of their respective day look like crap now. Letís change that. Letís take characters and vehicles from those old school video games and give them their well deserved face lifts. Letís see what an old school game would look like now.


Due Date: Sunday March 2nd 11:59pm GMT

Idea:

Pick oneÖ

Character Ė Take an old school video game character and recreate/redesign them with more up to date game specs. Think Atari, Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis.

Vehicle Ė Take an old school video game vehicle and recreate/redesign with more up to date game specs. Think Atari, Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis.


Poly limit:

16,000 Tris Total. You can do whatever you want with these, just donít get carried away and donít exceed the 16,000 Tri Limit. Remember, the limit tells you where to stop, there is no minimum, so use as much of the limit as you see fit. If 16,000 tris is too much for you, use 500, or 1,500. Itís ok, I wonít mind.

Textures:

-1 x 2048 Color Map
-1 x 2048 Reflection Map
-1 x 2048 Specular Map
-1 x 2048 Specular Color Map
-1 x 2048 Normal Map
-1 x 2048 Bump Map
-1 x 2048 Opacity (transparency) Map
-1 x 2048 Glow map
-1 x 2048 Glossiness map.

You can chop it up into multiple smaller textures.

Textures can be hand-painted or you can use photographic sources. Do what you do.



Pedestals/Stands:

You do not have to create one, but if you do, understand that there is no texture or tri limit. You can go as crazy as you want, or keep it basic.


Restrictions:

-Joint entries are OK for this challenge. You can work with a concept artist, thatís it. You must do all modeling/texturing yourself, that includes any and all sculpting.

-Your entry must be specifically created for this challenge. Do not use any pieces from previous personal works.

-There are no lighting restrictions.

-All Game/Render Engines are allowed.

-You must create a W.I.P Thread to show off your work in progress.

-If you submit a final entry, you must also vote when the time comes or your entry will be disqualified.

Final Pictures:

Required In The Final Post (1 post per entry):


-1 A link to your W.I.P. thread.

- 1 x Winning shot. This image should consist of your subject depicted in its most awesome angle.

- 1 x Beauty shot of your subject. Feel free to put multiple angles of your subject or just one big version or your subject on this page. You are free to do whatever post effects you like on this image. Be careful how you do this though, simple is often better. Itís up to you.

- 1 x Construction shot of your subject. Feel free to put multiple wire frame shots or just one big wire frame shot on this page. It is up to you.

- 1 x Texture sheet that includes all your used sheets squeezed into "one" sheet.

Sounds fun. I'll try to enter this one, my main problem is that I wasn't a big gamer back then so I missed about 99,9% of all those great games :P

I'll search around the internet for a bit and see if I can find some oldschool game that I liked (I can't remember). I don't really want to do the painfully obvious ones such as Zelda or Super Mario and I think it will be more fun if I personally enjoyed the game.
