Personal Work - 01 Spaceship Technical Exercise

I Have neglected this blog for a while now, So for an update here's something I've been working on for the last 4-5 months in my free time. Since my time at uni I have worked considerably on expanding my skill at hard surface modelling, Using this Spaceship/Dropship I have tried to use a combination of new techniques and proper attention to geometry to create a decent model. As for the model itself, it is an amalgamation of various sci-fi ships from varying TV shows and films that i have re-created and made something new. Though this is an ongoing project and far from finished here's what its looking like now.

Total objects: 2524
Total Faces: 1,933,966

MonoWheel Rig Progress




This is the Rig so far on the first model. The wheel spins, the middle has rotation relevant to the wheel, the ariel's have the ability to bend and the main guns have a slow firing animation.

Presentation Video Test 01

Presentation_test from jamie wathen on Vimeo.

I have set up this layout for presenting my work. The model on the left will have a 360 rotation and some kind of rest animation. The two turn around's on the right are a wire-frame and ambient occlusion. I have yet to find a good choice of music.

I felt the character was lacking compared to the mech, so I have re-textured the model and fixed some broken normal maps.

Alien Gun Prop




I have made this gun for use in posing my alien character. it needs work but should be okay for its purpose.

PC Character Update







I have started the last model for my project. This particular model has been difficult but is on its way now. I am still refining this base mesh before external parts will be added. Once this is done all models will be ready for sculpting.
