Lowpoly mini Mass Effect scene - hires tex version by Pyroxene Lowpoly mini Mass Effect scene - hires tex version by Pyroxene
A while ago I wanted to make some little low-poly retro versions of Mass Effect characters. I was gonna do like 3, at most. But I got carried away, so here's a whole bunch of them.

I was originally going to render these at a very low texture resolution, but I got too attached to my 512x512 work textures, so I kept them in there. I still put up an additional version of the scene with all characters at 128x128, because that was originally the point after all. You can see that version here: [link]

I'll upload some closeups of individual characters over the next few days. In the mean time, have some Shepard: [link]
(Edit: got around to posting them all, if you wanna see them, they're in the gallery. :))

PS: Yeah I know it's a bit of a mix and match of different versions of the characters from different installments in the series, but I didn't take it that seriously, so there. =P

(Edit again: since a lot of people are asking: I used Blender both for modeling and texturing.)

(Last edit: since the journal I posted the source files in is off my main page now, here's a link to them: [link])

I've always liked low poly art but this picture specifically makes me wanna try it. I've not touched blender since my programming class in highschool though and I've never made anything more complex than furniture. Texturing was what always gave me trouble, I always got confused laying everything out. I was the best in my class with anything 3d related and I really wasn't any good.

The whole ME series you did was adorable and you've got a pretty damn sweet gallery.
