Description
Never kill soldiers. Why? They might blow you up just by using their hat.

Please Thumbsup if you like, and if you don't like it just please tell me what I can fix in it and don't just swear.

Thanks,

@Marceline: Thanks for the crits. I understood crits 2 and 3 but I couldn't quite understand crits 1. Also, for crits 2, how can I bake lightning information in? Can you lead me to a guide?

Cont.


3: The material/shader. Again why is there no lighting information? This would really benefit from a normal map, or phong map, or both. Even if you bake a really simple high poly for flat normals, the lighting will give it some life, right now it’s just flat.

Look at Swizzle’s texture guide, pretty much all of these links;

Post here and if I can get to it I can do a paintover for you.

This critique is designed to help you better yourself as a modeler. That being said here are this issues with it:

1: The shape itself. I am going to assume this is intended to be a bomb. The bottom part of it, the part that touches his head, just looks kinda mushy, almost like a deflated balloon.

2: The texture. It almost made me sick to see the comment about wanting to ask Valve if you could use a 1024. The maximum texture size on a hat is 256. If you cannot get the detail you want in a 512 even; you are not using your texture space effectively. If a detail you want is not coming across then the detail is too small. What is up with the colors? The overall color is flat and desaturated, but the color on the end is way too saturated. They don’t even match the models they are on. What is up with the yellow stuff? I have no idea what it is and it only reads as distracting noise. Why is the wireframe baked into the texture? There is not lighting information baked in.

@[DTGC] ObligatedCupid1: Can you explain further? Like what is the sagged part exactly; since the middle part is the actual helmet and it has to be fatter than the model.

Kinda looks sagged in the middle, maby make it more upright?

Ok I will... anyone knows how to upload a newer version of the hat? I want to upload the newer version of the hat with better texture to the same folder. Is there a button or something like that?

Use a colour from the tf2 colour palette, looks bright and washed out right now.
