Hi there people of polycount. I recently started a monthly challenge that someone posted up. The challenge is about taking a piece of concept art and making it in a 3D package and importing the assets into UDK.

Basically I would like lots of feedback so I can approach my next project with better understanding. If you want wireframe shot of something just ask and I'll get it to you asap

Note: I'm using Maya for my modelling and texture baking.

The concept art which I painted over to identify repeated props and how many I needed to make

I started blocking out the scene. Got a bit carried away with the mechanical section. None of it snapped to the grid.

I have learned alot during this project especially baking textures (although I'm still getting unwanted errors). Maybe next time I'll use Xnormal as I here it produces cleaner bakes (my normal bakes are a bit weak and sometimes doesn't catch the detail at all) or maybe a combination of maya's transfer mapping and the xnormal plugin in photoshop. Anyways enough rambling...

My progress (a bit more in depth) is also on my tumblr...
