Mongolian Gutter Ball
« on: June 28, 2010, 02:36:05 pm »

Hey folks. Bit of a story for ya. My sister is in the Great Dark Horde (Mongolians) in the SCA. Her and a few of her Horde buddies decided to get together and make a bowling league. They named themselves the Mongolian Gutter Ball. My sister asked me if I could make some sort of 3D graphic so they could print them out and iron them on the backs of shirts. I wasn't really given any specifics, and almost infinite freedom on this project. My idea was a bowling ball with the GDH symbol on it, in the gutter in a bowling lane. After some thought, I realized the most Mongolian response of a gutter ball would be a flight of arrows.

I am now done with this project, and will not be revising it. All the same, I appreciate any C&C, as I can use lessons learned in future projects. Thanks in advance.

The details look great but I think it wouldn't look good on a shirt.

You should use a higher res texture for your textures and UV it to its correct position, that will give your model a much better quality look. I use texture sizes 1024x1024, 1280x1280, 2500x2500 or greater
