So here’s the result. Vue actually does struggle with the geo. I’ll have to explore creating normal maps in ZBrush. I’m trying to minimize the number of different steps (and apps) I use to create a finished result.
I’m very happy with this one. It’s not that great but then it’s only a few hours work, and a lot of that was fiddling around with the software. I feel that I’ve got a handle on the whole process, and some of my recent work isn’t half bad.
