Low poly Maru

15 Aug

I’m trying to get more 3D work in my portfolio. Here’s a low poly scene of Maru the cat playing with boxes. (just a mockup – not a game)

436 triangles
3 textures @ 128×128 each

If you aren’t familiar with Maru, here is his channel on YouTube. Prepare your heart strings.

    I really love the low-poly & low-res texture look! What program did you use for modeling this?

      I made this with Maya, but you can use just about any 3D program to make low-poly/low-res.

    Awww man I love the low-poly, unfiltered look SO MUCH

      Yeah, I’ve been really inspired by Kenneth Fejer lately. I can’t figure out how to do unfiltered textures in Maya so I actually had to make the 128×128 textures huge so they would be fuzzy. Would love to figure that out.

      “Maru in Boxland DS” Maru has a dream about a land of boxes.
