I finally got around to making a more realistic surface in Nomad, happy to share “Memories of a Drummer”, a realtime 3D scene running in the browser:
You can view the scene live here: https://the-crustaceans.glitch.me/

Modelled saturday evening, textured and brought to the web sunday evening.
Nomad → Blender with Needle Engine add-on → three.js on the web.
Here’s some stills from inside Nomad:
I made a bunch of facial expressions too, but didn’t end up using them so far:
The model has also been retopologized using Instant Meshes inside Nomad (a very welcome addition!) and baked from high-poly to low-poly. Love that by now I can do the entire realtime-ready workflow right inside Nomad! And Needle adds the web deployment / interactivity
