Airship

Submitted by Mechanical Man
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This model I made for an awesome guy for his campaign just because he's awesome. It didn't really turned as I wished to be and I have no use for it although I always wanted to have an epic airship. Hopefully he will made a good use of it and finish the campaign. And also for Elenai is now hive steampunk month or whatever, so is obvious whom I want the model be approved of.

I know that baloon is pretty crappy, but I couldn't find a better texture for it that has team color. And it has not many animation, if I'll feel I'll update and maybe even submit it afterwards.

EDIT: screenshot updated

    Bah, I see that the screenshot is not exactly the model, I added more polygons to the baloon, making it rounder and uwv is more "tiled" or how to call it. And also it has exhausts. But still marketplace texture is the best I could find, unless you have a better idea for team colored cloth.

    Indeed, this is a great model. The texture unwrap on the ship is great. The balloon needs some work, but I think the rest is great.

    Anyway, what am I to know. After all, you trained me.

    Well it looks fairly good except for the balloon texture. Perhaps you could make your own texture/modified texture for the balloon with team color to make it look nicer. Pretty good for the most part though. This is an air ship as in from Final Fantasy right?

    No I can't make a texture, because I'm not good at making textures and the model was meant to have ingame textures to save space. And no, is not for final fantasy. It was little inspired from talas airship from mtg, but it's not its copy.

    Hey thanks for replying. :cute: And whether or not its was not inspired by Final Fantasy I don't care. :razz:Either way I really like it. Maybe you should go look at some tutorials for making textures thats what I did for my model. This one is probably good for starting. But this one is probably the one that helped me the most.

    I don´t like my name up there in the keywords but awesome x3 kinda evens it out so i forgive you, now then the other texture i suggested was kinda plain but it would fix the messy uwv but it wouldn´t make it so characteristic, otherwise great model better than all of the crap i tryed to make. I do remember telling you not to help me with this or rather did say i was going to do it but i am glad you did it cause i suck at scratch modeling and i don´t really like asking others for help. It will come in handy though i might not be able to finish my campaign.

    Yay, finally approved!

    I tried the whitehorn one, but it didn't really help me, it uses smudge, dodge and burn, tools which are "banned" today. Archian's ones haven't tried yet, because I discovered it only recently, some links looks good, but I was more into ingame texture models and I'm not sure I will be able to produce anything even following those tutorials :/

    cool model

    Edit: Image removed by Elenai Lefein. Don't do it again! The image was far too vague and large for this kind of..."praise". You have been warned.

    I agree with everyone who said about the balloon texture. Otherwise it's looking great!

    Can you get a better screenshot? It's looks good, but you got a lot of work left on the baloon. 3.5/5
