Default Chirone vs Amoeba

So, the battle will start!

End of the battle: 23rd september

We will be modeling and texturing a tank. Thanks to mayaniac for the refs, cutting the image planes and the idea for this battle!
(Note: Me and Chirone will be moddeling with the same refs. They can be found on this page )

One of the reasons this challenge will have 6 weeks time limit is because Chirone is pretty busy with exams, his summer challenge and other things, and because I do not have any experience with texturing/mapping UV's.

And last but not least, good luck Chirone!

looks like i get first attack since you're computer is going slow with the image planes

ok, this is just a bunch of polys, 1052 tris already...
21 cylinders of subdivision 10, and 6 cubes, three with extrusions

at the moment its just floating partially attached to the wheel things in the catapillar wheels that are overlapping each other.

as you can tell the flat cube/platform thing is rather confused and needs some cutting up before it gets its shape

Unhappy Sorry

Sorry for not posting any progress yet...
Been busy with some other stuff so I didn't get the time to do much with the tank.

Will be posting progress soon though

Anyway, here they are:

that's quite a lot more complecated!
the side looks better, the back still confusing me when comparing it to the side (it looks like it should have somthing there that doesn't show up on the side... unless those blocks are indented)

and top is full of lots of new little bits and pieces :p
is that a spade and some hand held weapons on the top??

No, I am using the original references at the moment.

I'll probably have a catch-up update tomorrow, and sorry about not getting anything done for a while now...

Solid start amoeba!

You don't have to use the new references. I just gave to you, so that you would have more options.

but i'll stick with the initial references

ok i said i'd have something by wednesday, i lie, i had a headache instead

did a bit of work on the wheels and a small touch up on the gun

i saw the wheels are actually curved inwards and are round on the other side

i was wondering how i would do that...and as you can probably tell it was acheived with booleans.
the cylinder didn't have enough edges so i cut it into quarters and fixed one quarter then duplicated it a few times before combining and merging

edges were softened so it looks smoother in the render

verts: 1104
edges: 2247
faces: 1183
tris: 2128
UVs 2452
