WIP: Locomotive
« on: February 22, 2009, 05:25:09 pm »

Latest update!!!                                               Latest update!!!                                               Latest update!!!





Here is a first update, its a lamp that is going to come on front of the locomotive, as you can see I am going to try to subdivision-model everything, as long as anim8or will handle it.
Its a shame that anim8or doesnt want to show the bumpmap correctly, but im sure it wont be too visible in a final render.

Introduction
Hello all.. I am starting a new WIP here. It will be a fully detailed model of a locomotive. In this project I will go for high detail, but not for realism, just awesomeness ^,^ It will probably take me a while to model everything so stay tuned for updates!

Nice work simon, very clean modeling. Lets hope your computer can handle the poly's, since this are going to be alot of them.
Keep it going!

Great work $imon, I bet this is going to be better than your bus model.

$imon I guess this is an American Loco from the look of the Boiler door, do you intend to animate this, or will it just be a static?

Can the Door be opened? I would hate to start undoing all those bolts for maintenance work!

If animated, I look forward to seeing the Walschearts Valve gear in action!

Floyd; Thanks, I hope it wont be too intensive either. 3ds max can hold a lot more polies before it starts lagging, so I might get a bit overenthousiastic since I am used to that program ;)

Lizeal; I'm glad you like it ^,^

Tanzim; The modeling on my bus model was a bit more on a professional standerd, for this project I won't try to make everything perfect. But I am going to try to improve myself again of course :D

Kreator; You are absolutely right, I still have to add the opening mechanism on the front, it seems like you can undo the screws a little bit and then turn the items under it that keep it in place.
For now I will focus on the modeling, but I might make a static animation with the gear system in action, because it should look fascinating ;)

Thanks for the encouragements all, I will update soon! (if i can find some time between my schoolwork.)

Amazing.  Yes, you are going to need a lot of processor juice to compile the final avatar.  Detailing is fascinating and you get engrossed while modelling, but when it comes to rendering the things get irritating.

Keep it up.  Hope to see the steel monster soon.

You must have some great reference models because the models coming out great!
Really love the detail, and chance of a wire?

Tanzim, yea I have quite some reference photos but none of too good quality.. so a lot of the details is guesswork..


Update03
Another update.. made some detail on the top and some tubing around the edge.

The render came out way better than I would have expected from seeing the working-view, when I do something like that I usually end up with weird shading and creases when rendering.
BTW: Did you use the mirror and rotation tools for the nuts and bolts that circle the front of the engine?
