Tutorial On How to Flip or Invert Incorrect Normal Maps

Normal maps are created by many types of programs ranging from 2D to 3D.

I won't bore you with the "Whys and What For" but it is related to the direction of the light source on the Green channel of the normal map when it was created and this can differ depending on which program was used.

It's quite common for a Normal map to come out "inverted"

The good news is, it's also quite easy to fix in any 2D program.

Embers Of Caerus Forsaken Studios Texture Artists Diary Update

Viking Era Village Houses - Click to view. 
I have been working as a voluntary Environmental Texture Artist with Forsaken Studios since Nov 2011.

The creation of Embers Of Caerus (Described as a Next Generation low fantasy MMORPG)  is ambitious and as such the development is more of a marathon rather than a race.

Like any game in development, it's a fine balancing act for the studio to decide how much game information and visual spoilers they can release to keep people excited,  whilst keeping the bulk of the concept and game play ideas a secret for what should be obvious reasons.

I signed a NDA (None Disclosure Agreement)  when I joined the studio, which is standard practice that ensures people don't go blabbing about plans and projects in development for EoC.

CLICK TO VIEW. 
This can be frustrating on a selfish level because I want to show off my own personal contribution to the games development,  which I don't consider to be insignificant due to the fact I am the only environment texture artist amongst the 50 other studio members.
CLICK TO VIEW. 







We have modelers, riggers, animators, designers, story writers, music composers, coders, tech heads, (For want of a better word)  vocalists, concept artists and so many more
roles that I cannot remember at this very moment in time!

I would estimate over the last 14 months  I have "donated" around 1000 textures created specifically for the development of Embers of Caerus.

Today at last, I can now show off some of my handy work. (yay!)

CLICK TO VIEW
The renders displayed in this post are 3D projects created by Lee Perkins, the Art Director at Forsaken Studios and the chap I work directly with.
CLICK TO VIEW

The textures used in these models were created by myself and I guess I am proud hence I am publishing them in this blog post!

It's rare that I see what most people make with the textures I create and sell,  so it's rarer still to see them rendered in a good 3D project.

I have learned so much as a result of working with Forsaken Studios, in part because Lee is a self confessed perfectionist who is not afraid to say "That's rubbish Liz..try again!"
It used to sting but he's always right when he shows me any flaws and faults in my work.

I wouldn't have it any other way, it's because of Lees high standards that I have become a lot more of a perfectionist with my own work and a better texture artist as a result.

Riverbed Seamless Textures Water Caustics Light Effect

CLICK TO VIEW
I absolutely love how these came out.
I did not set off with the intention of making textures specific to a riverbed but they way the spectrum of colours shine in the smaller pebbles reminded me of how water caustics can have that effect on the stones when light shines through it.

And so, I named them "Riverbed Textures" but I am sure they would work for many other projects such as terrain.

There are 15 seamless 2D textures which tile on both axis.
They are sized 1024 x 1024 pixels

They're available right now for Second Life members from the SL Marketplace for 450 Linden Dollars.

Here is the link 

As always, these textures are available for commercial use in projects not associated with Linden Labs or indeed virtual worlds at all.

For extended license use, they can be seen and purchased from the TRU Textures website  and contentparadise.com
