Nice work. Some small points:
1) What I really like is your diffuse map. You show a lot of skill. The only thing I don't care for is how the hull appears to be very broken up in the "head" portion. Nice interpretation of the pink coloring.
Thanks! Although I really like that part of the ship , seems like a difference in aesthetics.
2) The normal map really needs some work. It kinda hides the great work on the diffuse map.
Normal maps.. well I don't think they are my thing , for some reason I never seem to get it right.. oh well experience makes one a master so if I bang my head at the wall for long enough I'll eventually break it! or pass out from massive head bonks whatever comes first.
3) Stylistically I think your engine section is fine. However I do feel that the Volition model implied a much more techy/greebly engine section based on the texture they used back there.
Dat engines on your ship , they're really sexy I thinks. I somewhat agree with the engine detailing, but when it will be obstructed by
4) Front engines are great. Good work!
Cheers, I like them too c:
One last thing... as a fellow artist, I'm totally cool with another take on a classic ship. As a card carrying member of the FSU team, I want to fire a BFGreen at your house. A brand spanking new version of the Sobek was just released, and two seconds of of the slightest bit of initiative could have made that evident. It isn't that options are a bad thing, just now we need to pick one to put into the MVP's.
So come hang out in IRC (#scp-fsu). There are plenty of Vasudan assets to do (Mentu is for you!), and we could really use the help. We also have some other awesome assets that just need a texture, and judging by that Sobek, seems like something you could handle. Anywho, hope to see you on IRC.
Heh, heh (BFGreen my house..
I just started building it 3 weeks ago when I got my hands on a free maya 2011/13 copy from the uni , so I wanted a project to familiarize myself with the program, and choose the sobek at random for it. I didn't know of anyone re doing it since well I haven't read the HLP forums in over 2 years ><.
Havent used irc in a looong time , might join up and see what is going on c:
Doing the mentu sounds like a bit of fun, but I was under the impression that someone is already working on it?
RGA's awesome greebles...
Could be merged with Oddgrim's fantastic shape.
Mind blown, if only. But I suspect such a project could end in tears.
Nicely done, I don't know which I like better at this point and I refuse to choose.
