Blockout Party!

Blockouts are a 3D Artist’s Best Friend. What do I mean by this? Its like an architect plotting out his ideas on paper… Its like building with lego blocks but better… Or really its like creating a plan in 3D. Once you finish your blockout, you’ve no commitment to finishing it OR better yet you have an asset list and a decent floorplan. Wanna see more blockouts? Got one or more to share? Join the Blockout Party! Checkout more blockouts and post yours here!

WIP: Lauter Italian Baroque Baby Grand Piano (post 1)

pintrestimagereference

Addicted to these ornamental details, I’m creating this beautifully crafted decade year old Luater Baby Grand Piano. Sold on Antiquepianos.com for $40,000 (and knowing I’ll never have a real one of my own), its a great choice for practicing how to model in high detail, export multiple maps, and using a PBR workflow with Substance Painter 5 or Quixel. Considering I was, at first, extremely intimidated by this piece, below you’ll find full 3D views of my current models and a video quickly demonstrating how I went about it. If anyone would like to know anything, I’ll be happy to talk about it on my post at polycount.com or feel free to contact me. I’m looking forward to using these wonderful new texturing tools and watching my piano progress, so be sure to check back for videos and updates! <3 Happy Spying!
