Cory Zicolella: 5/2 - 5/9 PPJ

*claps hands* This week was all about actually getting those ads onto the billboard I made weeks ago.  This proved harder to do than anticipated, largely because the billboards and art I made weren't scalable in a uniform fashion.  It is a lesson learned, and next time I will think ahead so this issue isn't run into again.  I also ran into an issue where Maya wasn't cooperating,  so I had to take time to troubleshoot that; luckily, it is fixed.

Had I made uniform canvases for the ads in Photoshop the corresponded to the UVs of the billboard, I wouldn't have to extend the art because the edges of what I made would reach the edge of the UVs.  Alas, this was not the case, and so all of my time was devoted to making these ads somewhat presentable on the billboard, mostly because this week I also had midterms which ate up alot of previous project time I had.

*Note:  All billboards will be placed somewhere in the mid ground, not front and center.  Some ads are meant to be placed on the stadium walls, closer to the player.  I'll be tackling that next.  These are also alot darker than they'll appear in game.

I plan to extend the LED effect on this one to the yellow edges, I just wanted to get the others done as priority,
