High poly to low poly 3d workflow


Here's a highly detailed tutorial series on preparing assets for realtime use - including retopologizing, baking normals and additional texturing in Substance Painter.

This is a video tutorial series in which I show the workflow on how to create a game asset from the high poly model to the low poly version.

I hope you like the series, you can download the models and textures for free from my Patreon account.

1. Sculpting the high poly model with Blender

2. Retopology with 3D-Coat

3. Alternative Retopology tool: Blender & Retopoflow

4. Manual UV Unwrapping with Blender

5. Baking normal maps with Blender Cycles

6. Texturing with Substance Painter

7. Export the textures and import to Unity and Unreal Engine 4

    • Thx and yes, I understand this. In my next series I will come up with character creation and I will use a combination of texture painting with Blender and normal painting with Substance Painter.
