Tech demos made using two 256×512 textures is better than anything we’ve seen this gen

Posted By | On 29th, Mar. 2012

3D artist, Tor Frick wants to prove a point, and he has done that in style. He has created beautiful tech demos which utilizes only two 256*512 textures, and the graphical fidelity on showcase here is simply incredible.

“The entire scene (Lab) uses 2 256*512 textures, one for diffuse and masks, and one for normalmap,” he wrote.

We have a bunch of screenshots and the two lovely tech demos for you, which you can check out below. The Datacore demo was made using just 69,000 triangles and for the Lab demo he relied heavily on masking and using UVs in different ways to get the most out of the scene.

I think he pretty much succeeded in doing what he had planned, as the end result is simply great. Don’t believe us? Take a look for yourself.
