By the end of this course you will be able to create low poly models for games and bake some basic maps.

When creating a game you need to deal with a problem called polycount. You must keep your assets low in the face count to make sure your game is playable on different hardware. 

So in this course you will learn how to approach low poly assets creating and also learn some modeling techniques. You will aslo learn how to prepare your game asset for texturing. Finally, you will get the idea of how the low poly object is compensated by using map projections.

We will first start setting up the reference images in Maya to model the boat from. Then we will start with the basic geomerty and move step by step for a good-looking asset. Then we will UV map the modeled boat and prepare it for maps baking and texture creation.

Introduction

Low-poly modeling (creating a boat)

1
lesson01

We will begin with setting up reference images to model from. It can be very difficult to have no ones.

It is also important to set up them correctly.

2
lesson02

In this lesson we will create the basic shape of our boat.

3
lesson03

This lesson is about adding details to the boat. We need to do that to give our boat a more realistic look.

4
lesson04

In this lesson we are going to make a high-poly version of the boat. We need it to project the details onto a low-poly version in a later movie.

5
lesson05

We will ad more objects to the boat in this lesson.

6
lesson06

In this lesson we will model the paddle for our boat.

7
lesson07

In this lesson we will start UV mapping our boat. We need the UV map to create texture maps for the object. UVs are a 2D representation of a 3D shape.

8
lesson08

This time we will make a UV layout. 

9
lesson09

We can mimic the high poly details on the low-poly model. We can do that by baking a normal map. So in this lesson we are going to do this.

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
