Sculpted, retopologised and then textured in ZBrush.

Overwhelmed by meaning
I sit located
In a plethora of networks
Symbols surround me
Gateways and connections
To every lived experience
I feel I could reach out and touch
I feel inspired
A thousand ties
Connect me to eternity
Destiny and history
Well up within me
But I find I am the puppet,
Not the master
The very cords that raise my eyes
Bind my hands.
Created in Sketchbook Pro on my Samsung tablet… I really love this ap. It’s easy to use, very flexible for an android sketch app and a lot of fun to use. Creating smooth lines is hard; it would be nice to have some proper curve functionality to tidy up my line work, as in the Windows application.
… But I’m happy with it and my work, and to be able to have this on a £150 tablet, and my phone too, is really nice :b
A quick update of the model. The exterior has been completely retopologised (thanks to the use of Maya’s Quad Draw function and lots of curves to help smooth out the edges and various interior pieces of the body panels). The front wheels now have brake pads and suspension modeled too. The textures are purely placeholders… lots of exciting stuff still to come: interior modelling, full texturing, the weaponry and maybe some exterior armor plating.
