K-ON! Clubroom – Model Spotlight #1

Between progress updates, I thought it would be a good idea to showcase some of the existing assets in more detail.

Let’s take a look at the first spotlight model: Mugi’s keyboard.

All the labels from the real instrument have been painstakingly recreated. With so many layers of text, lines and shapes, the source file comes to a total of 115 MB, and eats up almost 3.3 GB of memory when open. All that for a trim 553 KB final image!

Of course, the keyboard has a matching stand as well!

 

Watch the skies, and look forward to the next update!
