Had a great time with this challenge, photobucket is currently out of bandwidth for me, so here are the final renders off image shack
Howdy all, and a shout out to all the other portlandians.
I like the concept of this challenge, so i’m giving it a go. I found my way to http://www.sillof.com/C-Steampunk-ESB.htm and loved the snow trooper so i’m going with that.
(repostin' images below) [img]http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y22/TheJawsofDeath/3DCG/snowtrooper2.jpg[/img] [img]http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y22/TheJawsofDeath/3DCG/snowtrooper.jpg[/img] I'm not the best at "winging" a model from images like these so i asked a buddy of mine if he could draw up a front and side view based off of the trooper, but with less detail. which i plan on adding in later. (I can post the drawing if needed.) Admittedly, I got a bit ahead of myself and started modeling before posting up here.:blush: I made sure to document my work as I've gone though. starting with a (very)rough proportional build. [img]http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y22/TheJawsofDeath/3DCG/snowrough1.jpg[/img] Then beginning on the helmet [img]http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y22/TheJawsofDeath/3DCG/snowhelmet1.jpg[/img] after a bit more work, i got the helmet more-or-less done and began on the mask/veil part [img]http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y22/TheJawsofDeath/3DCG/mask1.jpg[/img] got the mask part mostly done and threw on some rough goggles and began parts of the chest. [img]http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y22/TheJawsofDeath/3DCG/snow25.jpg[/img] That's all I've got so far. It sounds almost, silly, but i want to give myself more work than i need to. I'm not a grizzled veteran of modeling my any means, so i want more situations where i may come across a new way of doing something. I can already tell there are some areas where i need to make changes, so fire away with C&C. :D
