UV texturing adventures

Hey hey!

Here's a quick look at my first foray into UV texturing (with some rushed lighting)! We were given a few car models to choose from and had to UV map one of them. The models themselves were crappy, which made it harder to unwrap. Also, the fact that it was the first thing that I'd ever unwrapped didn't help matters much.

All in all though it was a good experience. The next model I unwrap won't be nearly as overwhelming as it would've been had I not started off with this crazy model, I'm sure.

I've included the UV map and the textured UV map for those of you interested in more than just eye candy. If I can help anyone learn more about drawing, painting, or any aspect of 3D that I learn as I go, then that'll make my day :)

The model itself belongs to its respective owner, not me. In no way did I have anything to do with it's creation. Thought I'd mention that just in case ;)


For the moment, I'm working on a couple of my own models which I'll post some process for once I get farther along on them. Oh, and once I figure out how to upload video to my blog I'll toss up my first animation assignment!

Until then...lates!

Hey Dave,

Thanks for the birthday whishes. "HIGH FAIVE!" (you gotta see the Borat movie! I saw it last month through a free MySpace screening, hi-larious)

Hopefully we meet up this weekend and see TNBC in 3D! Has Jeanette mentioned that to you?

Tell her to reply to my e-mail!

BTW I'm quite impressed with what you are doing on Maya. You may need to help me refresh my memory on with stuff like modeling and texturing.

My school didn't have much time to teach texturing (very well) and the majority of our modeling class was for NURBS. What a waste of time that was!!!
