The Tiki-man. I created the Tiki-man for the mobile game Kona’s Crate by Darkwind media. This project was done over a number of weeks. When creating a model for a mobile game, the polygon count must remain low. Using normal maps I was able to achieve the appearance of much more detail than is really there. The creation of the Tiki-man can be found on my Blog.


Using the wireframe, the low polygon count is shown of the character. He needed to be low enough polygons to run on mobile devices without slowing the games frame rate. Any detail shown in the other image has been added using normal maps created in Mudbox. I was able to keep the character down to 860 quads.
