how long does it take you to make an individual model? say... the y-wing?

(we gonna see any a-wings, or are you just recreating the death star scene?)

HI GUYS

I WORK FULL TIME SO IF I GET AN OPORTUNITY I JUST GO FOR IT, THE X WING TOOK ME UNDER A DAY, THE FALCON ABOUT FOUR DAYS THEN THE Y WING ONLY TOOK ME A DAY BECAUSE I PINCHED A LOT OF THE STUFF OFF THE FALCON TO DETAIL IT, I JUST MADE ABOUT 10 ODD SHAPED BITS THEN PLAYED WITH SCALE AND STUFF MIX AND MATCH. TEXTURING THOUGH THAT CAN BE AS LONG AS YOU WANT.

My death star scene may end up being a mix between a new hope and return of the jedi, so if the going gets tough i will just make more models because that bits easier

The death star is just gonna be procedural with key bits being bumpped, i might try to do an ambiant occ map as well,

any suggestions on this one very welcome!

needs more bump or more small thingies added to it - right now looks too smooth and sphere-like.
