Standalone asset description:
This asset was based on about 50 photos that I took of an actual small building in Hyde park London.
My aim was to achieve a battle-torn and lonely feel to this, lit only by moonlight and torch fire, and to make it with a variety of techniques rolled into one.
Triangles: 10312, Materials: 5, Channels: 2, Textures: 9
Modelled in: Maya, arches sculpted in Zbrush.
Rendered with: Mental Ray
I sculpted the archways using zbrush and sampled to low poly game-display mesh. And painted a dirt map on a second UV channel.
This building has two UV sets; one for the colour and normal maps, the other contains unique uv space for the overall dirt texture.
