I have seen a couple of YouTube vids about making pattern/templates from in game images. But, I would like to pick the brains from anyone here who has made their own patterns and templates. How do you go about getting reference images of the prop you want to build? Screen shots while playing? Google? Actual developer artist materials? Also where did you get the information on the dimensions of said prop? I have tried looking up measurements on the H3 AR for example and I get nothing of value. Once you do have your image and at "life size" how do you go about making the pattern? Do you just print and have at it or trace over it in Photoshop? I have more questions but, I want to see what peoples responses are before I ask.
