It does look better. The colours look more realistic and it all fits together. The heat blur from the exhausts is a nice touch.

Cheers mate, I'm glad you think so. I think the heat distortion is key for selling the model as part of the environment. I just gotta figure out a way to make it work for animation.


Just saw this got WIP of the week, I'm, really stoked about that.. first time up on the top row here Thanks to whoever was responsible for that.

I recently have submitted one of the latest renders in the gallery, check it out here: http://tewicks.cgsociety.org/art/he...stic-3d-1196944

Update time, here's one of the clay renders I am working on.

Hi Tewicks,

Hey man, it really does show the hard work you've put into this. I love it.
But if you don't mind me asking, what camera settings have you used for this shot?

Another Header! Wow, excellent job!!

Wow congrats to the Wip of the Week header!
Looks all amazing as usual. Hard to tell which of the color variations I like more. The beige one has a nice desert feel but the other one feels a tiny bit more realistic.

Incredible work,

I worked at Bell Helicopter as an airframe design engineer on the AH-1Z and I'm really impressed with the accuracy of the model and the quality of the renders. Any plans for a UH-1Y? I would love to see a render of the two sister ships sitting side by side.

I showed this to my friend who flew AH-64s during Iraq and Afghanistan but he's also certified to fly AH-1Zs. His exact quote, "Ooo Wee that is a beautiful bird."

Then I asked him if he could tell it was CG (not real) and he did the classic double-take, "It isn't?" Then he started pointing out all the different parts, turbine, rocket pods, "and he's even got the right decals and the wavy air from the engines."

I'd say you've got a winner.
