Learn Hand Painted Texturing for Game Environments

Explore the techniques for modeling and texturing this stylized cabin using hand-painted textures!

In this course, we're going to be exploring the process of modeling and hand painting a rickety old cabin! We'll start off by reviewing the concept art and blocking out some base shapes, and from there jump into the wonderful world of UV unwrapping. Next, we'll be taking a look at the different stone, metal, and wood surface types we'll be painting, discuss and decide where we can save some texture resolution by sharing UV space, and then get moving on bringing the texture and visual look and feel of this low-poly cabin to life!
