Hip Flask Modelling

While modelling the bottles, I thought it would be a good idea to include a hip flask into our designs. Hip flasks were traditionally made of pewter silver or even glass.

Having found a model on sketchfab of an mixed material flask- leather and metal- I thought this would be cool to replicate. When texturing the flask, I could use the same model and alter how it looks i.e. have one of mixed material, and as a more expensive model, and the other, banged up and old, made of just pewter silver.


More of a fancier hip flask. (S-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com, 2016).


Engravings on the hip flask make it look like a family heirloom- with a crest, I could replace this with a ranch name or brand.


Something  a little more distressed gives a story behind the flask, it has been on a lot more journeys. Maybe adding an indent to make it look like bullet damage could give an idea of the danger of the life its owner lead. (Devonbuy.com, 2016).

Below is the model I created. I kept it fairly simple, and would really like to texture it.
