This is my 3-1/2 week project… Done!
This project is called the “Marozi Panzer 7”. No… it is not a real panzer model from ww2, its more of a fictional design. One of the main objectives of this project was to achieve a sense of pure massiveness. Its design is a conglomerate of pretty much all panzer models. Design elements were the Panzer III, Panzer IV, Tiger I and the Panther. To add to it, I exaggerated the exhaust pipes (snorkels) with exhaust dumping out of it. Another addition is creating a triple gun mount for the turret
Also, I wanted to add a sense of irony to the scene by (1) having the tank commander looking board, (2) and the tank not firing. (I wanted this tank scene to be slightly less cleché than other tank scenes) Texturing was probably the most tedious part of this job (and the longest).
I pretty much tweaked lighting and other details to how I wanted it, but I want to see how the public reacts to its final set up. Since I wana to send this to the Blender website for the Gallery submission.
