Once things calm down I'll add all of the SIGGRAPH info I mentioned in my last post. There was no wifi on the train and we arrived home a day later so it was definitely cause for catch up!
For now I wanted to share some of the work I've been making.
I found out about the Mari Texture contest a few days after the deadline when I picked up a copy of 3D world magazine. At the time I had not known how to use Mari, but soon after I picked it up. So now trying to make some more realistic pieces I decided to try my hand at this guy. The model was provided for the contest and it was unwrapped as well. The winners are beautiful and I admire them so! I hope this turns out at least near as nice!
