New project WIP
show user profile  3Ddeath
Hey, haven't been here in quite a while, don't see a lot of wips posted anymore so I figure I post this new project i'm working on.

Took a while to learn something about renderman shaders, but here's some of that work

How much code did that shader take?

No code on my part! I guess render man changed quite a bit as its pretty ez now.

Just some silly things like getting the look of a spec map was tricky since in renderman the spec controls the reflections...

I know a gravity field generator when I see one!
You're making a flying car! :D

Am I right?

Thanks guys!

Sir_Manfred, that's a good guess, closest anyone has gotten to guessing it yet, even my friends have no clue what this is.
So not anti gravity field generator :P I haven't yet decided if it will be flying or not yet, but it is a not future car for sure.

The tubing and housing makes me think of some sort of nuclear fusion device.

Sweet soft render at the top though, diggin' it.

You guessed it Dave! :)

Eventually the torus shape will be a glass tube so you can see the contained plasma inside spinning around, will be a fun challenge of mine to animate the plasma and have it 'start up' from a really powerful spark.

That model is grate! It's just feels so good to look at. I'd like to see a wireframe of that housing.

Edged-faces / wireframes or it didn't happen... You know the rules! :)

Fantastic modelling man, really makes me want to pull out 3DS Max and do some hard surfacey stuff - it's been far too long... :)

Haha, thanks guys.
Here's the unsmoothed wireframe, just don't hate me, at heart i'm a Max user! I miss a lot of the hard surface strengths Max has that maya severely lacks... cough symmetry... cough renderable splines... cough attaching objects without resetting names / instances / pivots

Very clean! Looks tight. Keep em coming man! I'm excited for the RenderMan portion of this project. :) I've been thinking of exploring outside of Vray a little bit.

Bit of an update, also playing with render settings each time since I figure it will take me quite some time to learn all that stuff.
