Ok, so the story is behind this is that there aint much of a story.
I decided to take a break from my little animation yesterday and was cruising the internet when I came across a site for the one and only Ray Harryhausen. Some will now Ray’s work from back in the day when they used alot of stop animation for the special FX, suffice it to say in my mind he’s a god amongst men. He was one of the main reason why I picked up on 3D modeling and animation (easier then stop animation, being another reason).
Anyway I came across a picture of him with a couple of model of his and one of the models was a “Flying saucer” from “Earth vs. the flying saucers”. I thought that should be an easy enough model to do. So I googled and found some pictures from the movie and even a blueprint of the entire ship.
An hour and half later I had rendered my flying saucer, add on an extra 20 - 30 minuets in photoshop and I was done.
So here you go, a fun little project to ease my mind. Made it look like an old photo shot back in the 40’s all scratched and dirty.
