Here’s something i’ve been at since march, the Pennsey T1. For my reel i wanted a big old mechanical beast to show off, and one thing led to another, i got in over my head and ended up with a nearly bolt for bolt, pipe for pipe recreation of the big T. It’s not literally perfect, but it’s damn near close. Seeing as i’m nearly finished with the locomotive itself, i figured post it here for some feedback.
My aim is to get a job at Turn 10 or some comparable studio, then save up for an engineering degree. I’ve been told by serious people that this is good enough to get places, so we’ll see how it goes. i have a whole animated reel in mind, which i’ve storyboarded out. Its companion piece is also on this level, but that’s another story for another time.
So yes, please tell me what you think, if there’s anything that needs work, if you don’t think this is turn 10 level i’d very much like to hear why. Please be cruel, featherfooting around things never got anyone anywhere, so have at it.
