I see that the new blenderguru competition is entitled steampunk. I quite enjoyed taking part in the last one (although in truth I only spent a day on it),
So I thought I’d have another go as I quite like the subject (and I think I have a good idea for this one).
As I’m not entirely sure where I’m supposed to post any work in progress, I thought this would be as good a place as any.
Some of you who have come across me before might remember that I am something of a fan of the country and landscape of Switzerland.
Now I have said on previous occasions but with so many beautiful lakes, so lovely and inviting to look at, it must be necessary for the Swiss to have a navy of some kind.
So without too much description at this stage, what I’m hoping to produce is a picture of a semi dirigible, belonging to the fleet air arm of the Federal Swiss navy,
With their flagship aircraft carrier, and some the accompanying capital ships in the background. Of course being Swiss
They all have to be paddle steamers!
Anyway to start the ball rolling here is a sketch I did in my lunch hour.
I may start modeling this tonight and you might see some results later on.
Up to this stage I haven’t really come to grips with the new cycles engine (preferring to use blender internal), however it is about time I grasp the nettle
Especially as I spent some money on a new graphics card. As I am not completely au fait with cycles I may need some help from time to time.
Anyway here we go!
