We'll show you the creation process for low poly weapons with a strong emphasis on hand painted texture maps. We'll begin by modelling a sword in Maya 2011, show the unwrapping process, and take you step-by-step through creating hand-painted, stylized textures for both a sword and a shield asset. Following that, we'll dive into 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.
