    Battleship Tirpitz

    Hello again everyone! This is the Tirpitz, a German world war 2 battleship, sister ship of the Bismark. I decided to make this ship because I thought the camouflage looked awesome, and I built a model ship (A real one) of it a good number of years back. My goal was to work on my modelling skills by trying to be as efficient and fast as I could by using more addons and modifiers to help. I used cycles for rendering, with blender internal for the smoke. Anyways, comments, questions, and criticisms are welcome

    @123ERTYY Thanks! This camo was used, along with many other patterns over the ships life.

    @andrea.ailic I do agree about the waves, they need more work. They aren't great, but then again I didn't put much time into them.

    I thought I might as well toss up some clay renders in case anyone is interested.

    Good work! How much time did you take to model everything?

    The modelling is excellent, I am very impressed by the amount of detail on the ship. The texturing and lighting of the scene could be improved though.

    Can you share your ocean settings? I have a project coming up where I have to make an ocean flyover. Your ocean would be perfect.

    @mik1190 Glad you like it! I spent a total of 3 weeks working on it in my spare time.

    @BlEnDeR fan Thanks for the feedback. I defiantly agree.

    @place57 There is a link to the model on blendswap in the first post, which should include the ocean settings and materials.

    Tiny Details

    I love all of the work you put into the tiny details other, less careless artists would have left out. Good job!

    I especially love the clay renders, that's something I have to steal.
