Best first post of the year! I like how you're incorporating the texture features into the new model, it's working out really nicely (I'm especially digging those intake grids on top
- About the hull plates, I think it would be best to bake them into the normals, that should save quite on a few polies.
- Furthermore, I'd suggest making the top gun barrels a little fatter; they seem almost frail right now.
- Another nice touch would be if you make those 'flaps' on the back a separate subobject, so they can rotate on afterburner like on the MVP Horus.
Overall, nice work, and a warm...
You realize that glows are a MVP addition, right ? If one wants to base himself on the pure retail Seth, it's his call.
Note that the WIP is shown next to the MVP-textured model, that's not the pure retail Seth
(I never noticed before how much of its general shape the Tauret owes to the back end of the Seth.)
Wow, yeah, now that you mention it... Can't unsee dammit!
