    Feedback is absolutely welcome if anyone would like to comment on the progress so far or has any suggestions for how it might be improved. Please let me know!

    Hello!

    For this art challenge I intend to make a pirate book. I’m going with a working title of either ‘Forgotten Shores’ or ‘Lost Shores’ for the book. The idea behind this was to give the book a sense of pending adventure, that what the book holds might be secrets to treasures in lands unknown!

    Time depending I also hope to make some flavour assets to create alongside the book to make it into a little scene, possibly some doubloons, a candle and a dagger. I’ll be working on the book until completion first so that it can work as a stand alone piece if I run out of time.

    Edit: For anyone interested. I’m a big fan of pirates! Check out the link below, it’s some of my previous work on sketchfab, a pirate grave!

    Super quick mood board to show what I’m thinking of creating. I love these chunky sort of Blizzard style books with a bold colour palette and a centrepiece (focal point on the centre front). For my book I’m going to have a compass on the front. I really like the keys dangling from the book in the image above so I’m thinking of having a skull and an anchor charm dangling from my book. I’d also like to include some studs, buckles, ribbons (book marks) and some pages hanging out the sides.

    I’ll work on a base mesh for the sculpt tonight and hopefully have some progress to post up tomorrow.

    Does anyone know how I tag this thread with an image like all the other entries? Apologies, I just joined an hour ago to do this challenge, I’m totally new to this and forums in general. I’d love it if people see a thumbnail of my progress as I make this.

    Edit: Sorted now. For those who might want to know. I just update my first post with an edit at the top of the post with a screen shot of the current progress of my asset 🙂

    Nice! What I imagine a Blizzard pirate book would look like 😀

    Super quick base colour and material pass. I’m probably going to play around with the palette a fair bit.

    Progress on texturing. Updated colour palette, some small details like an idea for the title and compass details in. Still plenty more texturing to be done!

    Texture updated. Still in progress. I’ll be working on the pages soon.

    Looking really good so far!

    I would throw in some more color variation, especially when you look at your references. I think the metal could use a bit more work there. But on the right track, can’t wait to see this finished 😀

    Thanks for the feeback Mortem. I totally agree! I’ll be working on a another pass of the texture this weekend, hopefully.
