When it comes to texturing, the enthusiasm I hold for my models falter significantly, and prompt me to usually stop or abandon my ideas after a couple unsuccessful tries. This time though, I really want to make it work. I want to have my project coming out looking as well as it does modeled with textures.
So if anyone can help me, I’d be grateful.
Firstly, let me show you the model.
It’s a model of the EarthGov Gunship from Dead Space 2, it can be seen chasing Issac Clarke around in various chapters of the game. You also may have seen my post in the Works in Progress section as well.
Here is an image of the gunship:
Alright, here’s what I need help with.
The Gunship is mostly composed of paneling which I need a scratched white surface. With darker spots around the edges and it needs to look slightly worn.
I have no idea how to do this, so far I’ve been UV unwrapping it onto a texture I grabbed off the net that looked mostly what I want it to look like.
This is what I get:
To get a better idea about where this fits onto the spacecraft, here’s another image
It looks nothing like I want it too. It has no ‘depth’, its got this strange lighting effect that I couldn’t fix by changing the lighting settings around. And it just doesn’t seem to ‘fit’ into the rest of the spacecraft’s look. I don’t know how to fix this. I tried looking into some tutorials, but after watching a 40 minute one which never seemed to get anywhere at all, and hence made it confusing to follow. I gave up. If I could have some step by step instructions or some kind person to show me how to make these panels fit in I would be very grateful.
I’ve tried changing the lighting around, but I’m no genius with that either, and the changes I did make didn’t seem to make much of a difference in the effects I was getting with the ship, so I was stumped there too.
I also tried applying the texture to different plates, but not to much avail. I am horrible at doing anything with textures, but I really want to make this work. I will attach the files for the model here if anyone wants to take a look at it and tell me if I’ve got anything wrong with the setup to begin with.
The file download link is here with attached textures ect:
If you take a look at this and can help me out, thanks a bunch!
