View Full Version : Sci-fi Battle Tank WIP

Hey Everyone, I've always been amazed by the work on this site. I've finally decided to post a wip in hopes to get some tips and feedbacks. I am still finishing up the low poly model. There are still a few holes that needs to be patched and n-gons that needs to be split into quads before I start the hi-poly modeling.

Day 1: tri-count thus far 4037

Wow, Batman got hard-core!
Nice so far, but can you show us a few side / front views like the concept?

@Valandar: sure, i plan on putting more view once i'm done with the low-poly.
Day 2: almost done with the low poly modeling still gotta model a bit more tiny details, then its off to unwrap and high poly.

This is looking really nice. I like the slanted wheels, very different. I think you're losing some of the "snugginess" from the concept. The front might need a little more tapering too. And by snugginess I mean the compacted feeling of the vehicle, the turret for instance sticks out upward a little much and the cross bar on those slanted wheels is more floating than attached to the armor above. Try a version where you push the characteristics more, just for experimenting.
Anyways, it's coming along and looking sleek.

you're back tires don't really look very round, more like egg shaped.

The rear wheels don't need to be round. From the looks of it they appear to be some kind of material (rubber or otherwise) on a track loop circling a central hub. If that's the case the central hub will remain stationary and only the outer ring will rotate, meaning that it can be any shape it wants to be, the mechanism will be hidden and they'll act like catapillar tracks from a conventional tank.
This is just a simple work around from what the concept shows and they could just be stylised normal wheels in the concept itself.
