Asset Production Progress 4

This week I have moved on to texturing, the first decision has been to decide colour palette. After a few variations on colour schemes that have a contrast of light and dark I have settled on a dark blue-grey base with white and orange highlights. This will align with the bold look I am aiming for.

I have also decided to create a camouflage pattern for the barrel of the pistol. After investigation I was surprised to find a method to create the pattern by “rendering clouds”in Photoshop (Alvarez, 2016). The process relies on manipulating the levels of the cloud render, which is repeated 3 times. Each of the three renders are given separate colours and a base colour is also added.

Another effect which I have used creates a deteriorated and worn look, commonly referred to as “grunge effect”. While  reference photo with a worn texture can be used as the base of this effect I have used a simple approach with a mottled brush shape and have erased away part of the colour to create the intended effect.

I have also added to the worn look with  greying of the edges of the pistol, and the addition of subtly worn areas.

During the process of using Photoshop I have become more familiar with filters which I have enjoyed exploring. Also on a small note, simple things such as using the eyedropper to locate a colour you would like to change very slightly have  Photoshop a more comfortable experience during the texturing phase.
