Been in a Star Wars mood lately so decided to try doing the trench run from A New Hope. Started with the X-Wing. Here is what I have. All comments welcome.
Excellent job so far. Modelling looks great. Textures could use some refining, look just a bit too uniform, and I don’t feel like the model specularity is high enough, but the modelling looks spot on, and the texturing is not far off.
Thanks for the feedback. I see what you mean about the texturing and spec.
The models look good (as in memory - no reference checked). Are you planning to make a still image or an animation?
I would consider making the xwing window glass transparent so you can see the facial expression and pose of the pilot - that can help create a much more expressive image, depending on planned composition.
As a Star Wars fan I think your models are top notch. As you progress, I would start to think of shiny and matte surfaces, a dirt map and studio lighting.
Here is what I have for the trench. First is clean, second is with motion blur. I plan on doing the blur to the trench but have ships in focus.
