I thought I should give handpainting a try. So its just confirmed that I love this! I can do this all day long every day.
Planning to land on around 3500 tris for this, and Ive set the texture size to about 2x1024 diffuse and alpha. Quite early stage atm, just started today.
Also, most of the stuff is just blocked in and not at all optimized!
Anything you like? Dislike? Just shout!
