I'm excited to start my own tower thread based Aero Blasters! Also known as Air Buster, I have this one on the NEC Turbo-Grafx 16 (also known as the PC Engine) and still play it to this day. Fan art to me is a way of telling my story and this is one of my favorite shooters. :poly009:
A few things:
1) I'm not going to try to implement my usual Unreal 4 workflow here so I will make this "stylized" and not "dirty/realism". I'm not sure exactly yet but it will look brighter to preserve the sort of anime or classic game style look to a degree.
2) I will intentionally allow the scale to be what it will be and not worry about it. This way it will make it look sort of like a miniature scale model if you were to 3d print it.
3) I will likely place the orange power up thing (name?) outside the 14x14x6 area to activate the space.
4) The models themselves will be a little less detail than I would usually make them to keep this simple, stylized and fun. I don't want to spend too much time on it, but I do want it to look as best as I can within the style I'm going for.
