So, I actually started with this right after the challenge was announced, but life is unexpected, and so I’m just now getting back into gear hopefully still in time to enter the finished product into the contest. :o
My inspiration is the Curcuis maximus, and the Roman Chariot races, but I didn’t want to fall into the old star wars pod racer trap, so I decided to stick with wheels and real life technology… with minimal artistic liberties.
I’m probably 60% (ish) done with detailing on the “horses” but I’ve only got basic placeholder materials on it, so haven’t really started the texturing phase yet. The net is not going to stay, I put that on thinking I would go a little more battle style, but I have sense decided to do a more clean cut racing machine.
The chariot is still a bit loose, comments are welcome, it’s still missing something in the back end of it and I’m not sure what to do there. the other part is if I should have the backing behind the pilot or not…
Anyways, I’ll shut up for now and just show you the pictures. comments, questions, and suggestions are all appreciated.
Edit: Sorry that the right pic is so dark, I will most likely be using Lux, so the lighting was still set up for that.
