Below is a watercolour texture I did as a test for one of the 3D locks in Echoes.
I thought, that it was a good idea painting the skin of the gate in an isometric view and asked a friend of mine, Erwin, to test it on the 3D element. It turned out, that we had some communication problems – my friend didn’t know that the 3 D scene was already prepared with the right camera angles in place and so the he spent painstaking hours and hours un-skewing the image and filling in the holes in order to get a plain view.
As you can imagine, He wasn’t very happy with the workflow and suggested another projection method, to which I’ve sticked to untill today. So, stay tuned. 🙂
