IS-2 1944 Heavy Tank

Hi!

I’ve just started new project. I chose IS-2 heavy tank ver.1944. I’m going to try new ways to create nice details. Welds joints will be sculpted in Zbrush. Then I will bake AO and normal maps.

Nice work again sir - but then you have set the benchmark very high with your T55…

Cheers, Clock.

Thank you @clockmender!

Yes, but this project will be way more advadanced and proffesional :wink:

that’s what I call confidence!!

I am already following this thread.

Knowing the quality of your work, Im expecting to be blown away. Good luck!

P.S. did you ever finish the environment on your previous tank?

It already looks fantastic! Which references are you using, if I may ask?

Thanks quys!

Nope, I’m waiting for a better idea for an environment :wink:

I’m using references from:

http://walkarounds.scalemodels.ru/v/walkarounds/afv/before_1950/IS-2+Museum+of+Stalingrads+Battle/?g2_page=1

and much more…

Those references, of course don’t come from 1944 model but there are a lot of common between those versions.

Looking great already! Keep at it!

Thank you for the answer!

Test of wheel’s texture:

Oh my… How did you manage to create such a beautiful texture… No words. Just :eek:

Thanks Cergina! Textures were created in Substance Painter.

It looks great! I like the bumps on the surface very much, I’d only decrease their strength on the running surface a bit.

Looking forward to the next update!

Thank you @throst! I fixed it.

Material is almost finished:

Nice material OP. Can you share it with me?

@Hans Zimr: Sorry, I can’t do this. Hope you understand.
Here you have a tutorial which explains almost everything: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkaeUV2lwrk&feature=youtu.be

Looks real! I love your work!
