I corrected the area around the front most part of the pilot’s canopy. reworked the engine cowling and changed the god aweful texture to a more correct Naval blue. Updated the lighting and added a background and went to a more “in your face” camera position.
So now how does it look???
Let me know… and THANK YOU for looking… it’s much appreciated!
yeah I was just using simple extrude for the wings and got to the ends and just quickly finished the tips… they definitely need more work.
I had not noticed the “mirror” that much (yeah right) but will more than likely tune it down when I get closer to finishing… the scheme I have in mind for this bird calls for semi-gloss and non-spec paint… gotta figure out how to pull that off
for the canopy frame, I just modelled the glass with the canopy in mind…then went back, copied verts out of the glass object and simply extruded it to make the frame. Probably not the best approach but it is one I find simple and easy for me…
The glass material… hmm… I copied that out of one of my other files… it didn’t come from the car material library or the regular material library… let me look and see where I got it… or I’ll just post the settings here later today for you…
That first image you posted is cool.
Looks good so far.
That blue shiny material you got right
now is distracting and it’s not easy to see your
model. Try medium gray or something,
turn down the spec and hard parameters
and if you would plz post some more pics.
The background is good, however IMO it is
unnecessary at this point.
The canopy is nice.
As you know the wings need work.
This site shows you how to do a good wing primitive.
