Hey Firstkeeper-
I'm on my planning phase for my 3d Models. I was wondering about the difference when painting a high poly model sculpt as a base and a low poly game model straight on as a base.

Unless I plan on using Normal Maps on the Low-poly, is there any difference between the two?

I know World of Warcraft models don't use Normal Maps- but the Heroes of the Storm Models do.
Thank you very much! :-)
Your work has always inspired me and i always go back to your DA Page when I question myself "What type of art do I want to create?" :-)

Hi Tamara, your work is very awesome, after seeing the tutorial in vimeo i just thinking if you still using photoshop to texture or use 3dcoat or what software you prefer to use for hand painted texture?
