Brummbar by smurfbizkit Brummbar by smurfbizkit
Created for the C&C3 total conversion Mideast Crisis 2;

Info:
Concept and model by spyVspy, uvmap and texture by myself

Easily one of my favorite textures I've done for MEC2.

You can find a detailed write-up on the creation of it (emphasis on our texturing workflow) here; [link]

Doesn't share much with the German tank it takes its name form, but it's beautiful nonetheless.

ILU TANKS!

Dude, all this work for MC2 is just AMAZING!
I REALLY like the texture style, keeping it really sketchy.
In this bottom picture, it makes the model look as if it were DRAWN into the scene in Photoshop or Painter, not rendered in-game :O

Everything is just so nice about MC2: the setting, the models, the textures...

All I can say now is WOW!

The texture needs a lot more contrast in my opinion. It's shouting for AO!

:iconsmurfbizkit:
smurfbizkit Featured By Owner May 28, 2012
Do you have any examples of more contrast? In hindsight (this was done a while back) there are a lot of changes I'd make but more contrast isn't one that occurred to me.

Well, I would at least render an AO pass and a lighting pass (with skylight/GI setup in max or maya) and merge them into the diffuse map. This tends to improve the contrast a lot. I made the experience that although the unreal engine (which I work with most of the time) has some kind of AO itself, some tweaks in the diffuse maps emphasize the details and the shape a lot. Have a look here: [link]

smurfbizkit Featured By Owner May 29, 2012
Yea, my workflow includes baking lighting into a separate texture. I used to fix it up and use it as a layer itself, but these days prefer to just use it as a guideline and paint it in by hand. I find that if I do that, I have more control and the benefit of it looking less procedural.

I do agree that it might've helped to have taken another pass on the highlights (especially along the sharper edges such as the front turret panel).

Only the diffuse shown there, has normal and spec map too. Didn't think it was worth showing (to see similar, see the M1A3 I did...same methods).
