Small update, I’ve refined the padding shape a little, tightened the gaps between the cushions, and fixed alignment issues left and right.
The last picture is the updated high-poly, and I also used blender’s new denoiser for the render so it takes less time (not that it is of any use for the model itself, but hey fancier picture), I need to use this more/remember that it exists.
I also modeled a big chunk of the low-polygon mesh. I haven’t tried rendering my normal maps yet or done any preliminary unwrapping either. This is a bit dense geometry-wise for a piece of structural mesh but it should be very easy to optimize on the lower LODs.
I’m still debating on re-adding the lower hatch on the door. Simply because it means I don’t have to create a texture variant for the door itself and only have to pad the inside 😛
(Well, the hatches also add a lot of visual appeal to the door’s otherwise flat surface)
I have finally decided to start working on a padded cell variant of my modular cell unit.
The design is VERY inspired by the amazing art of tangdraws. Go check his work, it is just that great. Somehow the tan padding has this sort of “Alien” (the movie) vibe?
I’m trying to get a good layout for the padded tiles, none of the internal dimensions of the cell are falling quite “right” to get a perfect grid, so I’m cheating here and there.
The left side of the door still upsets me…
The door itself will probably look like the regular cell door from the outside, without the bottom hatch, but I want to keep the middle hatch to give prisoners a “chance” to escape.
