Designing Wooden Platform
We put the ideas of the wood material tutorial into action by designing wooden platforms. These are often used and very versatile game art assets. Wether it’s building levels for you platformer or creating elements for the background, wood just looks nice. With a few easy steps you can quickly create great looking assets.
A lot of this tutorial is repeated here in a slightly less detailed way – you might want to reread the older tutorials if you run into problems.
If you work with bitmap output in mind I would suggest creating the platform as a bitmap first. This way you have the proper dimensions to work with. Import the bitmap and create the starting rectangle to match.
