Hey everyone! First time joining the #RookiesWeeklyDrills and I'm super excited to do my best in this.

I love Fortnite style and I am a great fan of all its beautifully made skins. Since there already are a lot of Disney/Marvel/Star Wars related content in the game, I thought about bringing my idea of what I think would be a super cool theme to add.

I grew up with Toy Story and my life wouldn't be the same without it. I want to honor (hopefully) the great work of those artists that brought this movie to life and recreate Buzz Lightyear's winged backpack as a Fortnite Asset.  

Here's my ref board at the moment 

And my first shapes blockout in Maya! 

I'll try to be as constant as possible with the updates. It's a busy period but I really want to create this and finish strong :) Thanks for watching! See you these days 

Finished with the Low Poly and the Subd Model. I'll put together the High Poly and UVS and hopefully start texturing tonight! :D 

Mesh is 4.2k Tris and UV are Mirrored in a 2048 texture sheet. I'm also adding a decal sheet for the few stickers Buzz has on his backpack. Those Decals are going to have a 512x512 Texture sheet size :) 

I'll move onto the bake now

Bake looks fair enough! Time  for some color finally :D

I wanted to keep texture very simple to avoid steering away from the "plastic toy" feel. Simple gradients and some handpainted scratch. That's really all 

After a very thorough research on Pinterest I was able to find Buzz's sticker decals. This is a layout of the 512x512 Texture sheet base color.
