This is a complete ballista weapon freely adapted from Viollet-Le-Duc’s references and notes taken from his great “Medieval Encyclopedia”.
For this project, my aim was to create a detailed PBR asset composed of several well adjusted materials.
My main concern was initially to focus on the material definition during the sculpting process. It has been especially true for the wood grain and details which represents a good part of this model.
Base textures were handmade and the additional polish have been done with the Quixel Suite (nDo/dDo). Non-tileable ground texture has been sculpted and composed in Zbrush.
