Weekly Drill 23 - Retro Electronics
I didn't have much time this week to work on this drill, but I wanted to have something - just to practice and to show some admiration for one of my favorite retro game devices: the Dreamcast Visual Memory Unit (VMU).
I had one when I was little and the only (non-demo) game I had for Dreamcast was Sonic Adventure 2. The VMU had a special feature with that game. When you raised and trained your Chao in the garden, you could also import them into your VMU and play/care/train with it like a Digimon or Tamagotchi. I thought that was the coolest thing, especially because I raised my chao to be strong fighters that way. haha Good times.
Modeled in Maya, textured in Substance Painter and Photoshop, and rendered in Marmoset. I didn't have time to further clean up after the render, but I think it looks pretty OK raw. Thanks for taking a look!
