Normal something

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!!

Finally back with another QBT and today's is about a topic that bugged me for a while. Nothing wrong with Blender, I just didn't get it until today.

Now, I've been a huge fan of node textures for a while and I've noticed that on node textures they don't always come out right in the normal department. For those who don't know what normal maps and normal influence and depth maps are, here you go:

Progress 006 - Bookshelf added with books and some ornaments.

Obviously the golden spheres are not good enough as ornaments throughout the shelves in such a huge number, so I threw some out and added some abstract birds (that translates as 'looks like something else', lol).

It was also the first real attempt at UV texturing. What it is is what you would use to paint onto a 3D shape. You unwrap your object as if it was made out of fabric so it lays out flat, then you paint over those folds. The ...

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
