I have reached the end of the low poly group game project. Unfortunately our group can’t put our assets together because of certain reasons.
On to a more positive note, I have finished making my low poly assets. The first thing I needed to do today was add colour to my assets. This was quite easy as I already knew what colours I wanted my assets to be.
After I had coloured my assets it was time to do some rendering. When I was doing this I decided that I was going to do some wire-frame rendering because I thought that it would be interesting to see what my assets would look like if I could only see the edges. To make my assets be rendered as wire-frame I had to change a few render settings. I changed from Maya Software to Maya Vector. I turned the fill option off so the colour would be gone and turned the include edges option on so that the edges would be seen. I also changed the edge style to outlines. This is what makes it wire-frame.
I think that the wire-frame looks really cool. As you can see in the pictures above, the wire-frames can be in 2 different ways (normal and triangular. I prefer the triangular version because I think it looks better.
After I had done wire-frame renders I was going to do normal renders. One of the renders would have only the tree’s in it and the other render would have the rocks in it.
Overall I think that I could have rendered these better as they don’t show that well in the image. I think that this could have something to do with the way that I had lit the scene.
If I was to go back to this project or start a new project similar to this, I would definitely do things differently. I would create more assets as I don’t think that I have enough. I believe that the assets would be different if I did this again. I would make sure the assets were completed to a high quality by taking more care when I was modeling them. I would also take more care when rendering them as they don’t look like they are a part of something. If I was going to render these again I would have a white background so my assets are more visible.
I enjoyed working in the group that I was in. I think that we worked well together and got on really well. We didn’t have any arguments or major disagreements. I believe that we communicated with each other very well.
This project will benefit me in the future as it will allow me to make sure that mistakes I made in this are not repeated in future projects.
