Example text

48 Let’s get started with the texture map creation. First, open up the reference photos from the project files Chapter2\CH002_Textures and paste the components that you’d like to see on your texture map into a new Photoshop file. Once you have the main components for the sides, crop the image and save it out. Next, flatten the image by going to Layer > Flatten Image. This step should give you with a nice canvas to start to work on. 49 Next, use a combination of the Clone Stamp tool (shortcut S) and the Healing Brush tool (J) to cover up the parts of the texture map that we don’t want.

Still in Editable mesh, select Extrude from Edit Geometry, then click on the center polygons (select them if they have been unselected), and drag the mouse toward yourself. This will create the extrusion. Obviously, if you had clicked and pushed forward when extruding, you would have created the same form, but as an addition to the geometry rather than a subtraction. Next, just scale the polygons to create the indentation on the top. Now, we need to create a handle. We’ll use Boolean again, as it’s nice and quick.

For this tutorial, we will use some reference photos. These photos have already been provided for you and can be downloaded from the Web site. Please refer to the introduction of the book for details on how to get these. To build this model, we will be doing slightly more modeling than the first tutorial and a little more complex mapping; but don’t worry, we’ll guide you through this, step by step. We will use the reference photos as a guide to model from, and we will use them again to create the texture map.
