    We are proud to introduces the MANN CO. POTATOS. These IMPORTED potatoes, from an UNKNOWN REGION, are MACHINE picked just for YOU!


    This MANN CO. POTATO SACK PACK comes with:
    -50lb. Potatobag
    -POTATOS

    Many "MIS-INFORMED consumers" have noticed that potatoes is "spelled" incorrectly. Well you know what we here at MANN CO. have to say about that?

    These are MANN CO. POTATOS! PUNCTUATION IS NOT ALLOWED!

    This is a revamped potato model. I tip my hat to Acumen and Cerulean for their help with the textures. I owe you guys!

    The pack includes the empty bulk potato bag, single potatoes and grouped potatoes to put inside the potato bag.

    I made the grouped potatoes separate so you can place them at any height in the bag and so that bag could be used for things besides potatoes. Be creative!

    Need a smoke? MANN CO. POTATOS, THE ULTIMATE substitute.

    Is it me or are those Potato sacks not looking very much like sacks that carry lumpy, large potatoes?..

    And it would look better if you added some shadows to the texture :)

    there were shadows i think its just light positioning.

    As for textures, im not a very good at doing textures. I couldn't believe i managed what i already did in photoshop. I do agree though it does look too uniform and such. I guess I can keep trying unless someone would be willing to help me make the texture (hint hint)

    did you try using an ambient occlusion map as a base ?
    i'm always making one when texturing my models and i think valve pretty much did bake most of the lighting in their props as well. often its even just flat colored.
    but just from the looks of it, i think its safe to say that pretty much every model has an ambient occlusion beneath its texture.

    Our intelligence agencies have startling news. RED's genetics lab has a prototype engineered bioweapon which they are preparing to field-test.

    The only details we managed to get before our agent was discovered was this photo and a code name... "Clifford".

    i think they should be a bit brighter, so they spread more potato love all around !
    these bad people claim it looks like poo i guess :D

    anyways, it's great you released this model and move on now. that's how you learn things and improve. just keep the crits in mind and make another model, and so on !!

    It looks like poo because the oval shapes intersect each other and appear to be mushed into one. You would need to keep them all uhh... "touching"?
