Bad News Steampunk Gun
My first thought for this weeks drill was to recreate one of Percy's guns from Critical Role. When I was researching I found a concepts for his gun Bad News, with a steampunk style. I chose this concept because I wanted to try something new and outside my comfort zone.
This project definitely had its challenges and there are a few things that I would change but I did learn a lot during this week. One of them being the importance of taking a break from staring at your work.
I modelled/sculpted the low and high poly mesh in Maya and Zbrush. The textures were done in Substance Painter and rendered in Marmoset Toolbag. I also used Illustrator and Photoshop.
I think the best part of this week was creating the crystals. I sculpted the high poly in Zbrush then brought it over to Maya for retopology. I had a lot of fun texturing them in Substance Painter.
