Real life textures are always more preferable than creating something from scratch in Photoshop. Even in a science fiction film, utilizing these textures helps keep the cg assets grounded in reality. Nugget drew his textures from his real inspiration. The cane toad. A taxidermied toad was bought from a tourist shop, photographed, then applied to the model in Mudbox. Bluey derives his textures from a rusted out 1974 Ford Escort. Other textures of note include a recycle bin for the rebel speeder, the concrete pylons under a bridge for Darth Drongo’s fortress and Merve’s Boomership, and various plant species for the space spores.
