Title: Gundam - 3d World Creative Challenge Winning Entry
Name: Justin Dowling
Country: United Kingdom
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop
I created this image for the 3D World Creative Challenge #10 - it was the winning entry.
It took around 8 weeks on and off in my spare time - I based the model on a toy I bought, and used my own experience to create the textures.
I used a skylight and two omnis to create the lighting. The skylight had a slightly red tinge to it. One omni was created as the sun the other was used just a smidgen for the bounce-back from the wall.
The background image was taken by me on Gloucester Road in Bristol, UK and the robot was composited in by eye.
I used Photoshop to adjust the levels slightly, and to rough the robot up a little to match the quality of the background plate.
I would like to rig the robot using some proper IK one day, and do some aniamtion with it.
I’m actually looking to leave my current job and move into the games industry so I’d be particularly interested in any crits from people working in that sector - do you think work of this quality could get me a job?
