I’ve spent a few weeks taking a course in MODO with the intention of learning how to make icons in a quicker, easier-to-edit way. This would also allow me to achieve a more uniform perspective and lighting than I was achieving by working solely in 2D in Photoshop or Illustrator, I finally have some work to display.
I set myself the challenge of creating a collection of icons for a sword & sorcery game. I decided to pick daily rewards, as this allowed me a good amount of freedom in what I chose to model in the sword & sorcery genre.
I researched some other games’ daily login rewards or ‘choose your prize’ scenes and laid out my own wireframe. After this I worked up a polished scene with my new MODO icons on display in a contextual way.
I hope you like the results and i’m looking forward to posting more 3D icon work in my next project post.
