View Full Version : FXWars: Tron Tribute! Thrasher

Have an idea laid out. Gonna try to do an animation of a lightcycle versus a tank (crazy ambitious but I have the time). So yeah, here I go... And if I finish, well hey I finish. If I don't... Then shame on me!

*Update* Finished my animatic / shot layout. Will post soon. Modeling a light cycle based on Tron Legacy design.

Here's some renders of the light cycle I made (I tried to go with the original concept design from Syd Mead but then altered it towards the Legacy trailer design)

And here it is with current shaders:

Going to fix up the glow effect and add some more glow lines for that real Tron effect. :)

Again, C&C are welcome.
