3D Modeling – Boxes Mostly
I recently started doing some freelance work with a game publisher and they inquired as to whether or not I did any 3D modelling for product shots. I said I had done some over the years the old fashioned way in Photoshop but had not done much actual 3D modelling or rendering but that I would be happy to learn. I have since built out 20+ boxes for them and have been really enjoying it.
Not just straight boxes though, moulded embossed tins as well. Plus cards, plastic bits, dice and wooden bits too.
I have also started on a personal project to build out all the standard Game Crafter boxes so that I can potentially offer the service to designers who want product shots of their Game Crafter project. So far I have only modelled the “Small Pro Box” and the “Mint Tin” (made from scratch). I used the artwork from my game Donut on the Small Pro Box and I just made something up for the Mint Tin.
