Feng Zhu image 27
HI peoples,

as some of you know I have pulled out of the toy challenge due to work commitments...there are some super entries so I wont be missed LOL. I have 2 projects which I will try to finish...one is the USS Defiant using a LW tutorial which I have yet to finish modelling. The transition from one program to another has been frightfully painful, though rewarding...as yes I am getting it doen, despite the differences in toolsets and methods. Pop over the Simply LW and you will see mine in tandem with 'arma'. Arma has finished modelling (bugger) but I am trying to gte mine done. The major hassles I will have will of course be when I smooth parts etc...as ctbram will appreciate...painful shit.

Anyway...I have been modelling this scene here and there...all credit to Feng Zhu for his artwork....fantastic stuff!! Love it...he was what I wanted to be when I was 16...sigh..alas that will never be...Im a Surveyor now..tough titties for me. I have e-mailed the academy for permission to use his image and have not recieved a reply...so I am posting this anyway..I hope I dont step on toes.

I realise that my modelling skills are mediocre at the best of times but I am proud that I can branch out away from a tutorial and give it a shot. I also know I have a LONG way to go before I even understand what Im doing with Maya...I dont have a of sparetime so forgive me for my lack of expertise. I am trying...thats the main thing and Im not scared of listening to you guys who are a great bunch of people. Anyway enough of the bullshit...here we go

cheers bullet

Image 1 is the ref.....enjoy (please if you throw objects....make sure its food LOL I need to feed my 5 kids)

Yep, you have improved loads since you first joined Bullet, looking forward to seeing you get even better!
Legend of Zombie did a version of this a while back, always liked the concept work, and you're doing a good job on it so far so best of luck with it mate.

Thanks mastone...stretch dave? man this is going to hurt me LOL...I have so much more to do detail wise. Then I also have to interpret the other rooms. Thanks mate

I-Iybrid..thanks mate...school! you lucky devil....he he he he. Yeh I have an idea for a sub arctic base that has been abandoned...with added rooms etc...dunno if that concept will fruit.

Cheers Dango..LOL yes it was LOZ who put me onto it...we were goingto have a private crack at each other and try to inspire each other back into modelling...he got busy and so did I...LOL so its just me at the mo...I love the concept art tis guy produces man...I might be modelling more of his stuff if I can pull this one off.

Oh and dave this will be the whole hog mate, texturing and lighting....thats the stretchy point I think LOL

cheers everyone
