Hello all! As part of a university module I got to try out weapon design from concept to final model.
I prefer to see myself as a 3D artist, so designing a weapon and sticking to the 2D design was quite a challenge. I eventually re-designed this asset towards of the module, with much more preferable results. Overall, my the 2D work lead towards the result you see here. The overall design was heavily impacted by the limitations of the 2D work, but displays the baking workflow to its full potential.
The final presentation is still something I am proud to show off here, but hopefully I can advance on my weapon design in the future! room for development.
