Despite being tired, I came home and used Photoshop to make a normal map of the brick wall. This is just a filter in Photoshop that I applied to the skin I created earlier. Here is the normal map image:
For those of you new to 3D modeling, this will give me some depth in my final image. I had intended to create a displacement map, but I need to be able to subdivide my model and the strange shape f the model is causing me all sorts of problems. I may have to give up on that in the short term.
So now I’ve added it back into the scene. I’ve also added a few materials to the stairs. So this is where I am at so far.
I might need to make the normal map slightly weaker. I may also do some work on the stairs. They are using the same materials and so the wear pattern is identical – which I find irritating.
Next, I need to work on the doors and windows.
I don’t believe that this will be a fancy art-nouveau door, but art-nouveau nevertheless.
Thanks for reading :)
