Currently I'm working on a vehicle from this unused concept art from Warhammer Online:

I really liked the idea of an ale-powered vehicle, haha. What concerns me is making it look like something one could sit it (to me, it looks a little thin) and also figuring out what the heck the back side looks like since there is only one view of the concept.

Here's the high poly block out that I have so far:

The gear wheels are a bit tough for me, I still want to refine the front wheel to match the proportions of the concept art. Thoughts?

I think the tall, round engine thing at the back needs to be a lil bigger and the cockpit thing needs to be much much smaller to match the concept.
This is looking nice so far, can't wait to see some updates!

Looks cool. Hope you will do something for the handbrakes, here they are just sticks with a pivot, but they should be linked to the wheels or the engine in some ways.

_deadpixel_ and njc6425 - thank you! And I did take another look at making the cockpit thing a little thinner like the concept...though it's hard to imagine a dwarf riding in it :P

Texelion - I was thinking the same thing...there's some parts of this concept that make me go "cool! ...but what does it do?" I will look into making a connection somewhere.

Very nice start.

My opinion is that it never hurts to deviate slightly from the concept if you think it makes more sense another way. Unless this is for a client or specific person, its just practice, and yes you want to show you can model to concept, just also picking out flaws (such as a dwarf is to fat to go in there) and addressing those shows good initiative aswell. You are not a robot copier, you are an artist!

Thats just my 2 cents anyway ;) Loving it

Oh my goodness! Updates!

So here is the finished high:

And the low (9,938 polys, just under the 10,000 limit for the assignment, ahaha) with ao and normals slapped on:

Tomorrow I'm going to get it into UDK and start texturing. If there's anything weird or can be improved that anyone notices I'll work on that too :]
