This tutorial will take you through every step of the creation process, so we will start by setting up rotoscopes within Softimage to use as reference. From there, we will use a variety of polygon modeling techniques to create low-resolution and high-resolution versions of our asset. Once that stage is complete we will use the Softimage Ultimapper to transfer all of the hi-res detail back to our low-res mesh using normal maps.
