A10 Warthog
show user profile  3Ddeath

I started this project last year and promised updates but instead I dropped of the face of the planet yet again, long story :P
But I did manage to get it to a more finished state, still a few things that aren't quite great about it but here it is :)

I even photographed that cloud image :D

It's a nice image, lots of colour. Nice work on the diffuse texture. Great background (what's the backstory to that photograph?).


Specular - the specular could do with more of a brushed feel. Maybe that's the normal map (or lack of) that's giving the shine too much of a flat feel.

Edge loops - the wings look like they're inflated. Not sure if that was the style you were going after (or if that matches the real wing of the A10), but I would be adding more edge loops all over. In particular, look at the smoothing on those wing flaps.

Glass - slightly too opaque for me, want to see those cockpit details.

Woah! it's 3d death :) .. long long .. am I right. It's been either ages you've posted or I've been missing to read your posts.

Nice render. + the points herfst mentioned.

Why does the plane looks bloated :P

Shouldn't the front of the wings be more tapered.

Nice bg by the way

Thanks guys!
Good comments herfst1

GirishDJoshi, it really has been a long time for me! I'll try to come more often since this place does inspire me to keep on making stuff!

I don't yet know why it may look bloated, too much gas I bet! ;)

The background I took way back in the day before I had my SLR, was just a shot out of a window from a regular airplane ride across Canada, nothing special, I was just happy to have found it and how well it fit what i was going for. :D

Next time I'm on the airplane ill make sure to take lots and lots of images! you never know.

Looks cool, I've always liked the A10. The texturing looks good but why is the paneling less apparent in the mid-section?

Here's some crits:
The shadows of the plane don't match the clouds. Looks studio lit rather than sun-lit and it makes the plane look like a toy. The camera lens used adds to this effect too, it is too long thus flattening the plane's features thus making it look small. A wider lens and more converging lines would help emphasise the actual scale of the plane and the direction it is coming from thus adding more drama and motion. The reflection or light coming from the bottom is probably impossible for the height it's at. The lighting in your other render on your site looks better tho the camera also doesn't match the plate. Looking forward to iterations though.

Good stuff nemac

I still have a lot to learn with lighting and rendering, I can make things visually pleasing but I overlook a lot of details like the opes you mentioned that can really bring out the image to a new level.

Always learning :)
