I textured this Imperial Guard type bot for a royal family in a solarpunk world. I wanted it to be ostentatious, yet menacing, while still being the sort of bot one would not be completely surprised to find at the right hand of the heir to the throne. The bot would guard them as they enjoyed themselves in their domed pleasure garden as often as they were out attending their diplomatic duties.
I created the main materials used for the bot in Substance Designer. I textured the bot in Substance Painter and painted in height map details there as well. My main concern was adding the graphic embossing on the mask and keeping the colors similar to what I imagined in the reworking of the original concept.
Ben Keeling, my instructor for the class at CGMA modeled the robot mesh and created the maps, and provided invaluable guidance to me as I learned how to use the software. The class was challenging, and very worth the effort as I've now learned Marmoset Toolbag 4, Substance Painter, and Substance Designer.
