Steam Tank, Ben Cole (3D)



Title: Steam Tank
Name: Ben Cole
Country: United States
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop, VRay

With all the steampunk going on I decided to make a steampunk inspired tank. Had fun trying out new workflows with this piece. All modeled and rendered in 3ds max + Vray with postwork done in photoshop.

Yea, Im not happy with the driver either. I needed someone/something to drive the tank in the shot though. I had half a mind to just stick a biped on there and call it good, lol.

Thanks Ruan, Im not at home at the moment so I cant grab a wire but here is an older render of just the tank I thought turned out OK. This is a straight render with no touch ups or postwork:

it looks a bit weird because the paint texture looks verry used/aged and scratched but it has verry glossy reflections... even freshly painted tanks dont look that glossy.

So the suggestion/crit i can give is to make the tankpaint's reflections more blurry.

also the lighting isnt correct. In the background the sun is shining from behind but on your render it is shining on the right

thanks for commenting! you're right, but the lighting was purposely moved slightly to the right simply to illuminate the tank better while still fooling the average eye into thinking it was part of the same environment the sky is.
