Hi me again :)
Im really trying hard to learn this 3d stuff as fast as I can and so I am again onto another projecct this time its going to be an old styling bomber plane with a future twist. I finished the jet turbine like engine that will go on both wings this afternoon. After about 3 hours, yeah Im slow :). OH, this time ive decided to spend a little more time on it so I can acctually create a decent looking model.

Also I was wondering if any of you out there that have seen my works could critique my progress... I have posted most all of the works I have done here and was just wondering how I was coming along... thanks a bunch

beautiful model, you still use some cel render right?

But of course :), I use cell rendering all of the time. But this time I used a gradient effect shader with reflection and an extended specularity to create a mild cell effect with a touch of realism. So I actually didnít use the cell shader effect in the rendering tab.

Thanks for your comments guys heres a lame excuse for an update. Im going with a more organic feel to the wings, tommorrow Im going to get the screws on, Its a real hell to do. Anyhoo I havent had enough time to finish the wing but ou can get the basic shape out of this pic.

The engine looks good and I like the style of the wing. Can't wait to see more.

Not sure from the angle, but the wing looks too thin and fragile. Unless of course it's a space vehicle where gravity doesnot suck?

Yep you guessed it it is a space craft, but the wing commander style ones...

Um yes I kinda abandoned this model, but I started work on it again so Ill have some updates to show tommorrow :)

the wing looks a bit to small for such a big jet...
looks promising though:thumbsup:

tommorrow Im going to get the screws on, Its a real hell to do.

Well... what u need is Paul Everets plugin Surfacepainter.
Have a look at it here:

http://www.bookwoodarts.de/pe/

Itīs about 50-60$ and worth every cent!! (And Paul is a cool guy worth supporting!) Be sure to check out his free plug ins - some really great stuff there as well.

I guess the screw thing would be a matter of 2-3 minutes work then!

BTW your model looks great so far ;)

Well, I wanted to get to the cockpit today but I started with the screws which slowed me way down, o well. Im not really a fast worker anyway, but I did get done with the front grate which shows kinda how the scale will look.


@Kaiskai
Iíve never played chronotrigger, so I looked it up and couldnít find and pics on anything besides the characters. I hear it is a really good game though. Might have to pick it up through emulation because I havenít seen the snes in a long while.


@matty2x4
but since I kept making new ones and not liking them either I decided to stick with these. Anyway Im doing this model purely out of my imagination so it could literally turn out looking like anything :)


@pit
Ouch, ummmm... I feel dizzy now. You just had to make me bang my head against the door didnít you. All I can say is wow that guy is amazing, very cool plugins there. When I get the money I am defiantly buying a copy of surface painter. until then I have the door to help keep my sanity :) Thanks for bringing that site to my attention.

It's looking great! What are you using for the chrome material and to get the toon look?

ndat

It basically looks toony because of the floor texture and the chrome is a pretty generic chrome that I use for a lot of things. Iíve included a file that shows everything, because I cant explain things for the life of me. I didnít include my model because then you would be able to see all the mistakes Iíve made on it, but I will post it when Im finished.
