X-wing then and now.
« on: February 05, 2014, 07:55:34 pm »

I found an old model i did when i was just starting out with anim8or in 7th grade (i think?).
so i decided to see how well i could do today.

it took me 2 days to do the modeling. I've unwrapped the wing and canopy, and i'm halfway through unwrapping the body (and correcting where the triangulate plugin scewed up).

Step up another level , with your modelling, reinforce some of the edges now with the bevel tool and you will get it looking even better!  you can then subdivide some of the components especially the engines,components on the fuselage and the seat. It will then look brilliant with a well thought out unwrapped UVmap.

I'm sure you feel a sense of satisfaction.
Nice detail and looking much more realistic.
