Project 2 is all about matching a texture from a stone to a complex CG model and compositing it into a scene. Many of the examples use the Stanford Dragon. Fortunately, I know of a similar website that have several amazing scans of statues.
Deux Chiens de Meute à L’attache is a model found on Three D Scans that I believe features a lot of interesting complexity. (Click here for more information). The scan is comes from the artist Georges Lucien Vacossin crafted in 1911 .
The download is a OBJ file of a 2,499,989 tris of great detail and no UVs. The next step is to export the model to zBrush to convert the mesh to polys and reduce the face count. One idea to help bring the details but keep the face count low would also be to use zBrush to make bump and displacement maps.
I'm excited to start this project.
