Epoch WIP
« on: March 21, 2009, 07:12:42 pm »
Below are some images of my Epoch model in the state of work in progress. I am nearly finished with the modeling phase and will be moving onto texturing soon.
Currently the model is 6488 triangles and would be considered a low polygon mesh.
I have used for reference two images the design image from the preregister page on compendium and the flying wallpaper image that is pretty much the only other Toriyama design sketch I can find. 

This is just a for fun thing for me I am not associated with any game remakes or fan games or any real game companies. This is simply Fan Art.
I had mentioned in my welcome thread that I would be posting my fan art here so consider this the first of many.
I will also be posting my textured images here as I get the time to map the model.






I forgot to post the side view.


If this is the wrong forum for this kinda topic please let me know.

Thanks!

Thanks, It's been over a year since I did anything in 3D so I had a sudden desire to model something fun and I just had got to the point in the CT on the DS where you get the Epoch and was like, "I wonder what it would look like in 3d.?"

Looks good!  You should texture it!

That is the next planned step. I have done nothing but work on the model since I got off work yesterday so I am going to take a break on starting the image mapping until tomorrow.

Its funny, I love the modeling step and the texturing step. But that UV mapping step can be a pain and extremely time consuming. But once its done the texturing fun can begin.

Wowsers, it's simply amazing! I have Blender but don't know the first thing about it and I dunno how to use it... wish there was a straight out tutorial for the basics. ("How to make a square.", etc.) ~~ Looks awesome!!

I use maya, it actually comes with some decent tutorials and there is tons of great documentation all over the internet. I highly recommend learning that or 3ds max if you want to get into 3d modeling.

Its a ton of fun.

Based on this design though, how does this thing land?

It depends on how I texture it, should I go for making the texture look as close as possible to how it looked in the game? Or update it a bit so it looks less cartoonie?

It's awesome without the texture, though something about it kind of reminds me of clay. Very nicely done, Kage! For some reason, I think the seats should be leather. That way you can cruise through time in luxury.
