This C4 Explosive was, by my recent interests of World War props. Here I went for a more realistic approach to this and Modeling all the parts that were nesserary.
For the circuit board, I used a custom Alpha that was worked in Photoshop, then took that into Substance and applying the necessary adjustments with additional parameters using Cem Tezcan's PCB Smart Material.
Some assets from previous projects also helped speed this project up, Materials for this project included industrial gaffer tape that created from a photograph, then taken into Substance Alchemist. All other additional elements such as the capacitors and resistor had their own UV island, this allowed me to create a variation to help bring the board life.
I'll be looking into creating a full break-down for some of the technical things that took places with all the including the physics for the tape, with everything, the progress can be found here. https://www.artstation.com/calvincropley/blog
Learnt quite a bit and I'm glad the results came out well.
Special Thanks to:
Cem Tezcan for the speedy reply and for the material, and Flavio Bodrogi for the seamless photo work and the memes.
