Thank you for your comment! I will work on the rendering at the end. Here you have a reflective material on everything just to help me to see the imperfections while modelling. I will retopologize a lot of thing at the end and so, create AO/Norm/Glossiness… maps with substance painter.
The fight against my “perfectionist side” has begun, but it is a long way to go. Sometimes, I have to be more perfectionist too… For exemple: I already understood that some details on the normal maps are cleaner when you draw it directly in 2D and not by baking high poly models. About this, I consider that I wasted a lot of time in modelling the “C” shapes on the disc… It’s difficult to have such clean result by modelling, but creating this in black and white to be converted on normals for the low poly model can be done in a minute… To be a perfectionist is also to select the most optimized method in terms of quality/production time. I’m happy with every improvement I make, but it makes me look back and blame myself for a lot of bad decisions. It’s an internal conflict ^^, it’s painful to grow
Personnaly, I am capable to see what needs to be changed, too… Maybe I could earn a lot of time by modelling faster, and inspecting after to fix things here and there. Because the slowness come when I try to be perfect from the very beginning. This childish willingness to do everything right the first time! “I have to grow up!”, it’s the main theme of this ticket. ^^
I already know that thing about the human perception. I often turn my creations in grey levels in order to have a fresh look on the contrasts in order to see if everything is okay during the final touches. And yes, the disc in my precedent screenshot isn’t perfectly readable behind the wheel rim for now.
Now let’s talk about my current situation: I put this project on hold for a while to learn VRay, because I think it’s something I have to know for an job interview very soon. And I will be far from my computer for the holiday season because my family live far away from my city. So I will get back on this in january.
See you soon!
And happy celebrations to you and all the readers!
