Objective

We need a Weapon created in the Voxel art style.  The Asset should use the default color pallet [HERE] with unique patterns/stripes/ribbons of the player color placed.  

Be sure to follow our standards for models Here

 

And we need this model animation ready as well so all moving parts need to be separated in order for an animator so assign a rig.  Follow the steps Here

 

While we want impressionistic and minimalistic approach review references to try to portray detail

Use the RPG-29 as inspiration and name.

Updated asset

RPG-29 with a missile.  Still need to import to blender and correct proportions

Research:  this counts time I spend looking back and forth for reference, 'till its memorized.

Calculations:  Jonathon's copy was 10 voxels
                     high at the "barrel." 
                     The model seemed              
                     incomplete.  I kind of liked the "scrunched" style, but felt it needed elongating, to capture the R29 a bit more accurately.    The RPG29 barrel in life is 100 cm or 1 m long.  This is reasonably close, I believe, for the overall scale.  I have a human figure pegged at about 1.5 to 1.75 m in blender.  This is within the normal average male and female height.  The tank
was scaled at .1 as were the trees, (from voxel to blender.)
          
My logic for voxel scaling is try to keep the squares as large as possible to maintain the style of the game and eliminate polygons.  So, even though I have the advantage of more voxels for detail I tried to keep them in pairs or 4s whenever possible. (which would be .5 scale after .1 and set.)
To roughly capture the dimensions it needed
to be 90 voxels long based on 8 voxel diameter for the barrel.  So to equal 1 m in length, scale .1 as in the tank set to 1 and then scale to .9.  (If it would have been 80, it would have been .8 to be a meter in length.)  Not that these have to be perfect, but its helpful to have a general direction indicative of the objects minimal characteristics to keep things to scale.
Anyway part of this time was spent reasoning this out and won't take as much time.  Experimental Markings 1 SIDEExperimental Markings 2 SIDE

finished RPG version 2I was going to submit another version but there was very
little difference.  Please let me know if you would like more
simplicity or if its minimal enough.

Hiya Jono. I thought this agenda was finished. Are you still working on it?


Hey tessa yeah this agenda is pretty much 99% completed ive just been absolutely slammed I will try to turn it in quickly


Yeah, I knew you were busy with work. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't finished and not turned in. (I've done that one more than once lol)
