Back again with a final render,
I changed the angle of the sun so the tread marks from the front wheels are more visible. I also think the new angle of the sun also makes the gray surfaces of the tank look more interesting. Also darkened a bit the color of the sand in the storm after looking at some sand storm pictures.
It would be great to add some dust thrown by the wheels but to look realistic I’d have to add a smoke simulation and my 5 year old hardware is already at its limits. I like to imagine that the tanks have stopped moving, waiting for the storm to pass and the crew is chilling, listening to some music until its all over and they can start moving again…
I could be tweaking this Image again and again but I have to move on, so this is my final, really final, render and I hope it looks good!
I’ve also uploaded this project on my ArtStation profile so if you are interested in a few more views of the tank please check it out: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/9gGmL
Thank you all for your support!
This project might be finished to me but your honest opinions and critique is still valuable!
