Our Iterative Pipeline
Although each asset is unique and not all projects will require the same stages, below is a common example of our pipeline for creating a single asset.
One of the most important parts of our workflow is our constant communication with you throughout the process.
All jobs begin with an initial meeting to discuss the asset required, for example, looking at the style of the game and any concept art, hardware requirements, budget, sizes and dimensions, and any other pertinent information.
Once accepted, we begin working on the asset in iterative stages. With each stage, you need to approve the work before moving on – ensuring complete happiness with the resulting asset.
The first phase of a material is to block out the large form shapes, such as the bricks in a wall material or the slopes of the surface in a ground material. This creates the core foundation on which the rest of the material.
Following on from our large forms, we create smaller forms and details, such as chips and cracks in the bricks of a wall material, or mounds of mud and branches in a ground material. This phase is where the material starts to take shape and come to life.
Once the medium forms are complete, we move on to the finer detail. The fine grain of the brick and grout in a wall material or the individual pebbles and clumps of mud in a ground material, really making the surface pop.
Once the shapes and details are complete, we move on to creating the actual colour of the material. When using PBR, the base colour is often referred to as albedo texture map, due to holding only colour data and no lighting information. Using PBR correct values when appropriate, each layer of the surface is coloured and blocked in. Once the basic colours are complete, we add more detail through natural variations, as well as any dirt and wear – always taking care to tell a story.
Microsurface refers to the surface details and how they react to lighting. This can be using roughness/metallic or specular/gloss texture maps, depending on your engine or environment. Taking all the details we have created so far, we block out basic values using real world data as a base before adding natural variations, taking in to account the story of the material; what it has been through and how it has been handled.
At this point our asset is complete and a review will take place, giving the opportunity for you to request any last-minute changes to the earlier stage before the final approval. Once approved; textures are packed, files are named appropriately, and everything is zipped up for easy delivery.
