I made a quick blade in Maya and unwrapped it get get going in Substance Painter again after a long time. The only thing that amazed me more than how much I remembered was how much I forgot. The guard and scales are premade materials in Substance with some dings and wear for good measure but I made the blade from scratch.
I followed Flipped Normals YouTube video on getting into Substance but I was wondering if there is anyone else out there that's tried and true for you all when getting into Substance as stone cold beginner. The tutorials from the Algorithmic seem a bit steep on the learning curve, for me at least.
Any c&c on the blade is welcomed as well! Thanks!model
