While attempting something called "Active Imagination" this morning instead of doing my 'usual' meditation, I had this cool scenario/vision come to mind where a juggler/jester handed me this object. I noted that there was a "design painted on it in red" but I couldn't exactly make it out, so the design is just what came to me while I was in painter. I did a little sketch which I've also included.

I modeled and textured it as an Uncharted style "examine the item" level of detail, or along the lines of inspecting an item in Skyrim.

Rendered in Painter with Iray and I also chucked it into UE4 and did an in-engine screengrab.


Hexy rock face

I noticed a neat looking stone wall texture in a screenshot from Warface and decided to try creating a facsimile of it in Substance Designer.

Just normal/roughness for now but I'll jump back in and add the moss and base colours.

...And the bathroom faucet

This morning I decided to recreate my bathroom sink faucet as a modeling warmup, and since it isn't the most complex model I brought it into Substance Painter and did a quick pass to see if I could get the watermarks and fingerprints to show up.

The photo was taken after for comparison and I see that the handle could be a little thinner and the base a little longer perhaps, but overall it was a fun little warmup!
