Nice idea.

If you use a thicker line width on the hex' ... you can always run the stitch plug-in to make it look more

*edit: maybe bevel selection could make the panels stand out more ?

Nice tut, good idea too. However, i think this needs expansion, like the suggestions welsblue mentioned. Then it'll be a great tut. :)

I'd also edit the title so it say "football" not "fotball". ;)

On the shape 3D part, When I change the Texture Scale to 0,700, It changes back to 5.000 and makes it look like a pool ball, ???

Edit: Oh nevermind, On your version it is 0,700 on mine its 0.700, Well nice tutorial, I'll post my result when I finish :D

It might be the fact you changed it to "0,700" not "0.700" (notice the comma and the decimal point).

If not, then i don't know. :)

Fixed spelling. Added clarification for American users.

No biggy but you missed out the typo at the start of the post...Where it says "Fotball" instead of "Football" :)

Good point. :-) Done.

Thats a really nice ball, i like it.

Thanks for using my tutorial.

I'll look at your suggestions and see if i can put them into the tutorial.

No worries. I liked the idea and am using it to make some good footballs (IMO :P )

I think your biggest thanks should go to david.atwell for not locking this, and making the changes :wink:

Wow! Great tutorial!

That's my try:

(A bit different)

And That's how I used it:

Hidden Content:
A screenshot from Toribash, mainly a fighting game but with a mod:

Before:

75249374_full,r,470x470.jpg

And after:

75249356_full,r,470x470.jpg

Yes, the light is a bit wrong, but it looks much better than the blue ball!

Again, great tutorial!

Thanks everybody for the feedback.

And nice ball there wiirus.

This is sorta breaking rules 5a and 6 in the tut guidelines

I don't feel I break any of these.

Firstly I was not in rush, I took me good time to write and make this.

But it must be a little difference to play with effects and make a fotball?

I didn't just play with some effects, it was delibirated.

I like the way you put the grass in, how did you do that? But I see that if you put in the black patches BEFORE using stitch/frosted glass, you dont see those annoying white lines in the patches.

Other wise, job well done!

@ Litl-Lol95 ... I made the grass using Oma's Palm Leaf tut Click Lots of layers and blurs :wink:

The ball was a quick job to show the tut author what else you could do.

Thanks
