Warhammer Building

Just started on a building from the warhammer online concept art today for practice! This is about an hour and a half-2 hours in, just roughing it out!

Gonna finish the rough today, then Zbrush some details in and hopefully get it done in a few days if spare time permits!


Got another hour to work on it today. Almost done with my base mesh, clocking in at 5000 tris now, I just need to add the eagle to the door, some lanterns, a sign, and the one front window area. Then it's on to zbrush detailing!!!


Finished the Base Model! Total cumulative time 4.5 hours! On to some High rez work and normal map generation!!!


Got some time to start playing around with texture ideas. Figured a basic stone brick with a muddy brown grout would do the trick, just something super simple and repeatable. Also decided to break up the cornerstones with a lighter smooth stone texture for now. Stairs aren't UV'd and I'm not sold on them sharing the cornerstone texture just yet, we'll see. Gonna texture my way up this thing from bottom to top! Spent a few hours on it so far, Mostly playing and test casing stuff.
