Old engine

(Aorta) #1

I am calling this finished.

An old engine based on the Fairbanks Morse “Y” Oil Engine - Style “H”.
I started this project mainly to improve my hardSurface modelling skills and I’ve learnd a lot. The model is not mean to be 100% accurate. I literally just googled old engine, and I found a cool looking design. So I decided to try my best. More info, if someone interested.
Despite the fact, that it lacks a lot of details, I like the way it turned out.

Texturing was done in Substance Painter, everything else in Blender.

Just awesome, I love the old, but well maintained look of the engine. This should be on the top row imo.

Overall this looks really good.
Something feels off though, which breaks the realism for me. I think it’s the main material’s shine. It seems a bit too glossy, maybe? Or too white?

I think I know what the problem is.
Initially I used a smart material to paint the surface and that material was metallic. I decided to change it almost entirely, however I liked the height map it produced, so I kept it as base material. And when I added the color I think I forgot to change the metallic parameters of it. So it looks like some metallic paint. If you dont write about it now, I wouldn’t even have picked it up.

Well, people learn from mistakes I guess. Also, artistic freedom :wink:
