First Decent Looking Asset

I am loving my trial version of Quixel‘s dDo!. I got some great results out of it on my last model. I didn’t model this one from scratch. I started with this chair from arhcive3d.net:

Chair-Original

It was too clean, and had too many triangles for use in a game. The final version below has the triangle count substantially reduced. And lots of scratches, dents, dirt, grime, etc added to it yet a nice varnish on it. I wanted it to look like someone picked this thing out of the garbage and saw the potential, stripped down the wood, then refinished and reupholstered it. My parents were always doing this. So I went ahead and did the same with an unloved digital chair, only I took it in reverse. I made the nice new one look old and beat up to remind me of home.

For the first time, I got pretty close to what I was aiming for.

I think it also goes well with the table in the previous post.
