    -valour-



    -Valour-
    The biting wind whips and the white light scatters between dusty snow clouds. The ends of the Earth rear up to swallow the soulless legions in endless frost. Their programmed apathy towards frozen joints and long jammed weapons keeps them moving towards destruction on the desolate front lines. An exercise in futility some may call it- others, an elegant symphony of flawless warfare conducted like clockwork. The penguins tremble and flee. The whales beneath drone and creak the ice, forming, in a fashion, a soundtrack for the battles that rage across the frozen wasteland above. Shells land, the booms muffled by gallons of upturned powder. Brief flashes of gold and orange flicker in the distance among the cool shades of tundra. Is courage simply following instructions, persisting till cold metal lays to rest within the ice? There is no heart in the chests of these tin soldiers, only rusted circuitry laden with target acquisition systems. They bleed oil as their worn hydraulics sigh out one last time. When fear of death is absent, what prods this cold soldier onward? Can there really be such a thing as valour among the mechanized masses?

    Hi, good work.

    Just one thing that hurts me : the rifle seems very "clean" (modelling and texturing). It "pops" from the overall mood and sculpt. Again, it's my opinion.

    Update: uploaded to blendswap

    @BlenderMagician, Kramon, Shakquan, Thatimster, jjjuho, kohg, nevbms, AlinB, minoribus, ookka, HanClinto, and sumoLondo... THAAAANKS SO MUCH! You guys are some of the coolest cats/ocelots ever, and I hope I inspired you to go out and create stuff even more mind-blowing!

    @ookka specifically: I do regret not putting as much work into texturing the assault rifle. But in a way it contrasts the abused arms and the rest of the character. I did add some frost, and glow to the barrel. If I'd had more time I would have gone in and scratched it up, added some decals etc. Firearms and weapons are an art in and of themselves IMO, and it's hard to have something of your own design that looks believable. I think it turned out alright in spite of it, though it does attract some attention.

    Great work dude! I would love to download the blend from Blendswap to check out the model further, but looking at the polycount my computer would probably explode.

    This is absolutely amazing. I hope someday that I can reach this level. Was it hard to do the textures and set up the normals in cycles? And wow did you model the background machinery as well or just paint it? Also how many polies? Fantastic work
