Cargo Ship

Had some fun rendering this cargo ship with different HDRI backgrounds whilst I was working on another piece (I ended up liking these more than the other bigger work…).

I modelled and textured everything in Blender, with the exception of two human models I used for the silhouettes (Blenderkit).

I was inspired for the design by the WWII Sherman tank, particularly the cast turret. I wanted something chunky, somewhat inelegant, and looking like it might be out of date in whatever setting it ended up in.

I was also inspired a little by the ball-turrets from B-17 bombers. But this thing has guns that fire shells the size of humans. Its firing angles are pretty limited though and it’d be mincemeat against smaller ships.


Here is the full project:
