PART 3 – GUITAR PEDAL : LOW POLY, UVS AND BAKE
And we’ve reached the end of the guitar pedal prop! Let’s get these UVs unwrapped, normals baked, and materials on!
MODO and Substance Painter, together again … And xNormal, for added flavor.

Pushing Points Topology Scripts For MODO
I thought it would be fun to take someone else’s high poly mesh and break it down to game res, as if it was assigned to me at a studio or game company. Scott Pearce, an artist on my Discord, was kind enough to donate his ”guitar pedal” mesh to the cause.
This small series of videos will show my approaches to organizing the high poly, creating the low poly, doing the UV unwrap, and baking out the normal maps.
Have fun watching!
Hi! I’m Warren Marshall!
I’m a freelance, hard surface 3D artist living in North Carolina. I specialize in hard surface work but I can do pretty much anything from environments to props.
I worked at Epic Games for over 15 years and started freelancing after that. Since then I’ve done prop and environment work for some fun projects, including We Happy Few from Compulsion Games and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. I’ve also done a bunch of asset packs for the various marketplaces.
I have experience with Unreal Engine 4 and Unity and know how to put assets together quickly that look good in those engines.
Here’s a link to my Art Station page where you can see a bunch of my latest work:
