The finished Traffic Cone (Well nearly)

It was now time to texture the Traffic Cone and so i set about unwrapping the object in Maya until i produced the following UVW layout of the model:

Having completed the unwrap of the Traffic Cone i set the UVW layout in Photoshop and produced the following texture:

Texture size 256 x 256

Note: It is important to reduce the texture size to as small as possible when building a in-game asset as texture sizes take up most of the memory in next gen titles.

Here are some renders i produced in Maya this model is nearly finished now but im sure there is still room for improvement. I am never satisfied with what i have produced as i always think i can improve something but for now i am going to call it a day on the Traffic Cone and move onto my next model.
