Alright! So I am working on a piece for the VGRemix with a mashup between Pikmin and tabletop games like Dungeons & Dragons and Heroscape. The idea is to have the diorama look like a built game board with Pikmin pieces on it.
Right now I just finished Captain Olimar and Louie. Lookin good! The helmet idea wasn't working, so whatever. I'll just have the little lights float above their heads. It works.
Here's my latest progress:
Here's the lighting I have now for my scene. Looking pretty good, so I'm going to press on with this and bake it into the individual textures.
Hope you enjoy this thread and project! I know I am, and it helps me from running in circles until Pikmin 3 comes out.
