This week has been a huge learning process for me. So far I’ve learned more about texturing with Maya, Photoshop and Illustrator using Alphas, different layers and transparency values as well as working on learning more about planar mapping.
I have completed one model (Flower C) so far but I plan to work more on it depending on the feedback that I receive from the team this Sunday. I am currently working on a fallen tree concept to take a break from layering flower models and that involves learning more about planar mapping and making sure that I understand it so that I can apply it to other models that are being textured.
Next week should be even better and I should be able to produce more models that week since I have a better idea on what I need to do. I know that I am going to ask the team if I need to focus on texturing, producing defined models with low poly counts or both. Depending on what they decide for me to do, I will focus on that on the upcoming models that I will be making.
Until next week!
