This week I have been tinkering with designing modular rooms for using with the labyrinths when it comes time to design those. In the images below, you can see some ideas I am working with.
Original Room from Labyrinth 01, Eagle:
Top Down View of the same room:
3rd Person View:
Top Down View using Pillars instead of Blocks:
Third Person View:
With these top down views, you will not be able to see the ceiling within the dungeon, but I am going to have one created for when you are in first and third person views.
So the texturing is complete bunk at this point, but I am learning. Just now getting used to adding different materials to a model, moving the material around and scaling it properly too. Setting seams for a UV unwrap is a skill all of itself, another thing I will be marathoning info-graphs and tutorials for. Below are the three textures I am using in their most basic for for Labyrinth 01.
Top of the Walls:
All of these are super basic, I am going to be:
1.) Working on detailing them with the Hand-Painted texture tutorials I have found plenty of.
2.) I will also be running these through the Substance Designer program (https://www.allegorithmic.com/) to get some nice procedural texturing going so things are not so sterile and clean.
3.) Crazybump will be used to create the Normal, Specular and other maps.
