This is a 5 part tutorial from Jimmyon with total length of 60 minutes teaching low polygon modeling for game meshes. He is using GIMP and Blender 2.49.
From the introduction of the video:
This tutorial is made with blender 2.49 but the technique im teaching you here is very easy to use in 2.5 as well, so don't turn off :)
i recently made my first real tutorial which has a total length of 60 minutes and covers all basic elements of low poly design.
Its optimized for Blender 2.49 but its not a 'Click that button'-Tutorial, its a tutorial teaching you a technique on how to proceed with low poly objects and the BGE.
It covers 8 important points of low poly design (3d-gamedesign)
- Basic modelling advices
- Unwrapping and UV-advices
- Baking AO-map
- Bringing it all into TheGIMP
- Texture Painting
- Normal Mapping
- Material Setup
I would say the difficulty of this tutorial is quite low, but you should have some experience and skills in blender aswell as a good memory so you dont forget what i say in that long tutorial.
