my textured assets so far in unreal

spent today learning unreal and decided to see what my assets looked like 

i also worked out how to make the little red lights on the tv and the camera glow on and off, and the vending machine has a slight glow that goes on and off but its barley noticable

head update

iphone 4 WIP

i modelled this with using 68tri's with diffuse map added...i had to curve the edges and use chamfer on each edges thats the reason why my tri count is that high....i still need to add bump n spec...what you think??

Prison Reference


re textured....added normals but not the spec...steve told me it wud be easier to add something like that on the udk!! anyway i reduced the asset to 14tris ;)

severd head wip

Faulty Electrics Particle test #1

I've been attempting to create a particle effect in UDK for faulty lights/electrics. For some reason it wouldn't let me save the package so wouldn't allow me to view it in level, will have to do it again in labs, but here is a video capture of it. Let me know whatcha think :)

break_glass WIP

86tris....diffusee, spec and alpha added but i havent added the normals yet!! what do you think?
