The Marauder, Casper Thomsen (3D)

Title: The Marauder
Name: Casper Thomsen
Country: Denmark
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop, VRay
Submitted: 4th July 2011

A school project I just finished based on the Marauder unit from Blizzard's Starcraft 2. The entire project took around 2½ with around 3-5 hours of work a day(also writing an report besides it)
The entire model is modelled with edge pulling and some modifiers like shell and turbosmooth. Base materials were created and rendered with V-Ray and then heavily modified in photoshop where I also added some of the decals and scratches.

I hope you like it.

looks good, i like the textures, shaders could have a bit more contrast for the reflections.
i think you should use displacement for the scratsches, would give the shaders more depth.

Great model and presentation, I just think the scratches are a bit over done.

very nice but i agree with the "overdone" scratches. they dont follow logical pattern where scratches would naturally accumulate.

Very good work!!!

I liked the model and loved the old scratched metal appearance. Did you make normal mapping or modified it in PS?
I draw using math models and algorithms.

Very fine, I love this game.

Hi guys, thanks for the kind replies.

@Kzin, Yeah I can see that now. The post work only had 2 days in order for me to reach the deadline, so the scratches came out really fast

@DarkLimit, thanks for the kind words, I can see your point, I wanted the marauder to look like he's been in a lot of battles.

@far, Thanks

@INKMAN002, thanks for the feedback, I can see your point about the scatches not being in the most logical places, I'll keep that in mind on my next project

@SGDDik, Thanks

@leocda, Thanks, all the scratches are in fact post work due to a thight deadline and Mudbox not having the abillity to go high enough in res to achieve the detail I wanted under such a "short" project

@KalinichM, thanks

It reminds me a bit an Eat 3d video tutorial "ZBrush Hard Surface Technique".

Nice work, especially with the scratches. I know they can take a bit of time to get right.
