View Full Version : Starfighter WIP

03 March 2002, 01:52 AM
This is a WIP model of a starfighter that I will be doing a small anim of a flyby and weapons fire.

This is the start of the texturing. Please take a look and let me know what you think. I am doing the textures in Photoshop.


PS: I know I need to reduce the specularity of the hull. It's annoying me too!:D Sorry I didn't attach

Ok Ill post on this one..
The texturing looks good so far but the front of the ship looks goofy to me and it is just throwing off the total model.. I could say you might need to add a bit of detail in bump mapping as if it had been flying around and been hit by meteors or some other objects.. Keep workin

Thanks for posting something finally. Thanks for the comments. Ther front of it has been bothering me too. I am going to fix it. I will play with the bump map once I have it textured completely.

Thanks again!

Added some more textures and faked the GI lighting. Still need to to finish the textures and add the pilot and weapons specialist to the cockpit.

Please tell me what you think so far. Iam also running and animation of this on another machine right now and will post the link tomorrow.

Much better.. What software are you using?
I dont currently have a computer of my own otherwise I would show you some of my work. Just my gf's old 300mhz celeron and I sure as hell am not going to try to run Maya 4 on it.. only 128 of mem eeewww...

The Bump Map on your ship looks really good!
You might want to make the textures a wee bit more flaky on the edges just to show ware and tear..
Still I would squish the front in a bit more to level the model out..
Keep it up.
