This tutorial series takes a complete look at modeling and unwrapping a hard-surface prop, starting with creating a high poly of this bomb-case asset. Then, we'll make the low poly using quick modifier stack shortcuts, discuss UV unwrapping, and explain the important relationship between Normal maps, UVs, and Smoothing groups.
