3D Visua – Bug

New 3D task: Make an insect.
For this task we had 3 types of insects (a grasshopper, a wasp and a rhinoceros beetle) and
had to combine elements from the three of them to create a new insect that still looked realistic.
I feel that the problem with this one was that many people chose the same elements though…
Luckily I didn’t add wings, unlike many.
The big challenge during this task was the UV-map. I still haven’t learnt how to make the different
pieces line up nicely and form a shape. My problem was that you had a bunch of messy pieces and
had to figure out which one was which.
Some new things I’ve learnt:
You can put the UV-map pieces on top of each other. This way you only need to make a small sized
texture image (as all stacked pieces will get the same color).
If your 3D object is mostly symmetric you can spare a lot of time by only making one side &
then simply mirroring it.
