Default Hummer

Been busy as have loads of models I need to create at the moment so my wolf project is gonna have to go on hold for a couple of weeks. Thought I would share one of the models that I am currently working on though.

Impressive mate!!! Like the look in the first shot...gives it a surreal kinda look. Are you going to texture/paint?

cheers bullet

Cheers bullet, Yeah am gonna texture it as soon as I get headus to layout the uv's. I used to use roadkill but no free version for the mac so am gonna purchase headus in the next couple of weeks. Have already uv'd the outer shell as I find hard surface stuff much easier, although there are a lot of characters I have made so I will be using headus mainly for that.

Gonna start the gun mount and underside next week.

Unfortunately I cannot share to much of this as it is work related. I am able to show the hummer as they can be seen anywhere. Unfortunately it is gonna be a desert scene as that is what is required. I have attached one of the early images I created which shows a load of primitives where I have now put a small town although the scene now has a lot more depth.

Cheers Guys, The landscape is done in vue although I will be setting up a scene in vue of yellowstone park in my wolf wip that is in the wip section. Should help show how I use maya, zbrush and vue together in my workflow and how to create landscapes from google map refs relatively quickly. Hope to be getting back to that in a couple of weeks and hope that some of the stuff I post may be of use.

I will get some pics of the tires up later today tomorrow although I may redo them as they did not come out great and need to get some more detail in there.

This tutorial pretty much shows how to do it though.
