I posted this a little while back in WAYWO, but I figured id make a new thread for it.
So, like the title suggests, I'm making a Jet Bike of sorts.
Here is the initial sketch I made for it:
Progress on the engine so far:
Low after AO/NM bake:
I decided that for this project it would be fun to think about how this bike may be constructed if some slight customization and/or upgrading was a factor. Specifically, if you could upgrade your jet engine to a better/faster model. So I came up with this:
This is the blockout. I figured out the proportions that I would have compared to the biped.
On the left is the bike hull, and what is basically an empty slot for a turbine to be attached. The right shows the engine compared to the body. I decided that the engine should be about 2 meters long and .5 meters diameter to fit nicely into the bike..so any other engines should match this sizing. Also, other bike bodies should/would fit this size as well.
Also, for fun, here is the low poly jet attached to the bike. Ignore the crazy colors:
Going to be sportin' the xoliul shader 2. Not a whole lot going on yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing what results I can get.
I'm wanting to make this a portfolio piece, so I'd definitely like to make this look as good as I possibly can. Looking for critiques/comments/etc!
