WEEK 7: Texturing & Shading 1 - unwrapping more complex models, continued

We'll pick up where we left off last week, finishing up the unwrapping of our fire hydrant model.

Always keep in mind the importance of grouping your objects to make them easier to paint. We'll (hopefully) get started with a little painting today.

I'll give you a little background about ye olde hydrant to get you thinking about how to make it look really nice and beat-up. Maybe we'll even pay our fire hydrant a little visit in RL. :o)

This assignment isn't due for a few weeks so you'll have lots to time to paint it and apply a couple of new kinds of maps.
