Create a triple A quality FPS kukri knife!


Step 1: Modeling & Unwrapping

The modeling part covers the scene setup followed by the low and high-poly modeling in which we make use of advanced actions, modifiers and tools to help us create our kukri. After the modeling process we will jump straight into the UVW Editor and focus on the importance of an optimized UV-Layout to get the maximum out of our texture.

Step 2: Baking & Texturing
In the Substance Painter 2 part we will then bake our normal map as well as other important support maps. Right after that you will learn how to create an ultra realistic texture for our kukri. Learn how to create our base layer materials and how to use procedural textures, masks and generators to form up the wear and tear on our kukri resulting in a photo realistic appearance.

Hey everyone, like I was saying in the tutorial. I usually work with the chamfer modifier in combination with turbosmooth.
Working with OpenSubdiv is not really my territory and I had a few people already pointing out that I should make use of the CreaseSet modifier since those go hand in hand.

My friend Eric Max just created a short tutorial about it which is the best I've seen on that topic, check it out:
