First Ever Reskin - Some Shotgun Shell Model
« on: May 03, 2012, 12:15:51 AM »
I was just messing around in Photoshop earlier, and I started to make this piece of crap. Is this decent for a first skin? The black line near the bottom there looks big, but it is really only 1 pixel in width; the original of this creator of this model stretched out the UVs for some reason. I haven't started working on the top and bottom of the shell yet.

Is there anything I need to improve on? Scratches, metal, etc.?

By the way, does anyone know of a better way of getting UVs off of a model other than using the "Export UV Map" option in Jed's Half Life Model Viewer?

(To view the image in all of its HD-ness, click on the picture, then click on it once more in ImageShack, and finally, right click on the image and click on "View Image", which will then allow you to zoom in.)

I think the palette of the texture is kinda all wrong, the white reflection on the gold part is kinda pink, other than that it looks pretty nice to me
