  • Not much of an update just completed the inner bank of roadwheels, due in part caused by further time constraints doing this stuff by my day job    still nonetheless progress. A particular challenge was re-editing the idler wheel into one useable …
  • Yeah echoing the general price point sentiment but considering ADSK's aggressive "Marketing" policy in terms of 'optimising' their product line profit margin of late, I mean quite honestly at the end of the day couldn't have come as any great surpri…
  • Your very welcome was a pleasure seeing this project plus skillset develop and best of luck with the future  Hope to see you back here sometime. Cheers. Sac'y

  • Wow!! just too fine Now I'm looking forward to seeing this beauty 'roughed' up a bit...?!  KurtPoly said: @sacboi  Hi Sac, Like Jakro said. I'll be fully texturing and lighting the car. There will be two end results - a new look, and then a dam…

  • Yeah the safest rout is making your own stuff by far and importantly remembering to slap a copyright on it pronto before uploading as a polished portfolio asset, otherwise risk some egg-head ripping a copy. Although here's a happy thought you could …
  • You're off to a good start. As far as I can see the main volumes and shapes of the vehicle's base mesh look fine plus agreed generating 'realistic' materials can be a bit challenging, too say the least
  • @Caiterade - Thankyou. Heh...yeah blame naming this thread on my fondness for 'minutiae' in regards to most things I've an interest in or could it be put down too a simple "Geeky" characteristic?! Oh...and the full German name plus literal transla…
  • @cromadbomber - Thankyou. I'm pretty satisfied with the overall topology at the moment. Update - sub-d time, beginning with the tank's running gear: I typically use reflective matcaps just as a sort of  'diagnostic' aid, validating geo consistency …
  • slosh said: No worries Eric!  I get this is totally out of your hands.  You did the right thing though...Teespring was just dropping the ball big time.  Hopefully we get some quality Greentooth shirts from another vendor!  Yep + 1 I'm also won…
  • - "Flappy Bird" will be spoken of with reverence, practically in the same breath as Stanley Kubrick's cinematic masterpiece: 2001: A Space Odyssey in the coming millennia...mark my words. 
  • Well for me it's this 'thing' people seem to have against Blender's UI, which I find so utterly fucked-out IRRITATING whether implementing it's embedded game engine or not. I've noticed more than a handful of less than favourable discussions on tha…

  • Grimwolf said: Oh my God, is that just a black box surrounding the Greentooth on a white mug? Well not really a box per se, more like an image overlay fired/baked/autoclaved/printed...whatever the process may be onto the outside? Yeah was a litt…
  • Luckily I'd held off ordering the Ts and Hoodies when the store first launched. International shipping costs being what they are when converted too domestic Aussie bucks, were a bit eye-watering to say the least. Though more than happy shelling out …

  • Yup the red livery does it for me. It's a well known fact using that colour makes the vehicle look faster and more importantly cooler, especially with the addition of a racing stripe

  • Amazing work Kurt! I'm looking forward to seeing this model completely textured, if these recent tests are anything to go by And I was going to finish off posting my modeling workflow you'd requested earlier but nah...to be honest you really don't…

  • ^ Indeed boggles the mind, come to think of it   
  • Hmm...curious as to why this 'Mega Thread' wasn't made a sticky after all this time, rather than relying on OP bumping every once-'n-awhile through interested eyeballs browsing for relevant info? Oh well...anyways I'd gone back ten pages too check …
  • Shweet! - looks like you're getting on top of this automotive modelling caper pretty damn FAST, if you ask me  Hmm...although might be a little nit picking crit, but the tyres seem to be a tad too 'rounded' specifically I'm noticing where the tyre'…

  • Hi: Looking good   Though a couple of minor points I missed on the previous update, I've highlighted by modding your workflow images: Fig 1 Just a little unevenness in the mesh, result slight shading artefacts caused by misplaced quads and tri…

  • Sad to hear of his passing, indeed an undoubted artistic talent taken from us far too soon. Among his most recent work that'd stuck in my mind was the cockpit concept for the TFMS-9C "Thumper" spaceship (...as had already been posted above) I'd firs…
  • Hi there: Sorry for the delayed reply, busy with work Now taking a peek at your progress thus far, even though you'd followed the advice offered above there still seems to be a number of topology issues in the base mesh that'll need to be addres…
  • I was wondering before suggesting some additional advice on optimising your project, is how far will you develop this automotive polygonal model? For example are you thinking about adding reflective materials or is this solely a modelling exercise?
  • @Joopson I don't think Michael Knubben meant too demean those artists contributions to the music industry per se, but rather as opposed to the relevance of posting a linked personal blog covering a broad range of creative disciplines which is obvi…
