How the fuck do i make a brick wall that is actually kinda realistic (so not only a slapped texture on a cube) but it doesn't have 3 billions of polygons after 5 bricks?
>>576312how realistic do you feel this one is >>576048i can go into more detail about how i made it
>>576324It's bad and here's why. You never paint directly on the bricks. A layer of concrete, which is blueish-gray and a layer of plaster of paris goes on first. That's why your wall looks like wallpaper.
>>576324Looks nice even tho it is not "thick" like bricks are supposed to be which is the effect i want to have (so basically make a billion of bricks and turn them into wall but that kills the polycount because every brick is unique so it has to be high enough resolution to allow for me to manipulate it).But go ahead you can tell
>>576330>You never paint directly on the bricksclearly you've never been to the ghetto.
>>576312Make three or four bricks with a few polygons but good normal maps, then, make an array that selects them and rotates them 180º at random.Also yeah, displacements work.
