Hey everyone! Finally shipped Tower Wars and I'm ready to start on some more personal work and get more involved in the community again. So here goes!

Found an awesome Concept by Christian Pearce That I've been wanting to tackle.

All the high poly I did on Tower Wars was relatively simple geo, I want to try something more complicated. Here's the blockout. All crits are very welcome. Thanks!

Started the Highpoly. My plan is to get the big shapes done in max and then do all the fine details like the metal plating and paint chips in Zbrush.





Lots still to do! Crits welcome.

Those proportions are great, and the modelling looks nice and clean. Love that bomb rack!

Hey this is awesome man! If you dont mind me asking... how did you render that last picture? I see renders similar to that all the time and I really would love to know how to do it! I always thought it was a view port snapshot from z-brush, it looks like one of the matcaps!

edit: Wait a second is that z-brush? hahahahaha

Thanks a bunch guys!

FractaL: It was rendered in Zbrush ;)

Think I'm calling the Highpoly just about done, just a few things left to tighten up.

Nice! Reminds me of Sine Mora's art style a bit. Which is a good thing.

That looks superb but for a beginner like me it looks a bit impossible to execute.

Love.Prenzel: Heh, well I tried to show my process in as many steps as I could. It really is just a matter of blocking it out, then working each individual piece till it looks right. Just takes time!

Speaking of which I forgot to post another step, I finished the unwrap and baking. Also started blocking out colors and getting bigger details in. Just color so far (even some of the colors aren't quite right yet) no real spec. I want to finish this thing this week! I need accountability!

Thanks guys for the encouragement!

Just about done here, gonna do some breakdown shots later this week. It's been a challenge, stoked to be just about done.



So what do you guys think? Should I add a propeller despite the concept not having one? I put it off, Im thinking of just adding an alpha mapped one in motion. I dunno we'll see, I need a break from this heh.

Rendered in Marmoset.

Love it. Any chance we can get a blurry spinning propeller in the final shot?

Thanks a lot everyone!

Der Hollandar: Yeah, I think I will add one. I have a decal sheet with enough room for one, I was just being lazy. I'll do it!

Looking great man! I have had this on my computer as a potential model for long time now. You did justice to it! Love it!

I do however think you are lacking some contrast that is in the original concept. Almost like you need some darker AO shadows.
