I'm opening this thread in order to find some help for the Team Avalanche project - I'm essentially pasting this thread
, but I would like to reach more people within the qhimm forums. I would appreciate if this thread is not
re-posted elsewhere - previous attempts at getting help outside this forum have gotten little but unwanted attention (aka troll party).
Back to the topic: I would like this thread to be more specifically dedicated to what I would call “texture jobs”.
On the one hand, it is my understanding that there are many people out there who are familiar, if not somewhat proficient, with Photoshop and 2D design, probably more than people handling 3D modelling. On the other hand, there are many aspects of texturing used in 3D modelling which could use much help from 2D artists.
In order to create realistic, believable urban environments, 3D modelling artists often need to populate a scene with man-made objects, and many of these objects bear labels or covers with an elaborate design. Here is a short list of items where the texture would require a small job of its own: books, soda cans, posters, magazines, food packaging, paintings, spray can, vehicle dashboard, etc.
Of course, a 3D modelling artist could spend the time for designing these textures. However, given how understaffed we are in the 3D modelling area, I do not think it is the best use of time and resources, especially if there are available 2D artists who could lend a hand. In that respect, any support we could get would be very much appreciated.
Below is a list of textures which need to be done, the list will be updated as jobs are completed and new tasks will have to be carried out. Other 3D modelling artists are welcome to post job requests in this thread. Detailed descriptions for each job can be discussed in the thread, or in this thread
