RPG Inventory Icons - Curvy 3D 4.0

Post by Simon »

I find sculpting much easier and more accurate than drawing or painting, so I used Curvy to make a set of inventory icons for a Sci-fi RPG game.

The vast majority of the work here is Slabs, with a Cubes and Cylinders. Sometimes Lines and Lathes. There is very little sculpting with brushes - just a bit here and there to add a natural look. When I needed to make more complex shapes I tended to use Curvy Maps (displacement) and Voxel Intersection (Booleans). When I get really stuck I use a Loft with thickness - Helpful for shapes that bend in more than one direction at once.

And a few of my favorites zoomed in:

This should be one of the first images a visitor to http://www.curvy3d.com sees, IMHO.
Any estimate of the total time spent making all of these items?

About 2 days, I worked through them in large batches reusing materials and sometimes shapes too (eg: similar bottles)
