    That. Is. AWESOME!

    Seriously, how long has that taken you so far? Is the design original because it looks amazing!

    I forgot to mention it is a Steampunk style tank if you are wondering why it looks a little different from a normal tank.

    Its about 6 hours work spread over about 4 months though. I had no idea what I was going to make when I set out, it was originally going to be a fixed turret, but slowly evolved into the tank that you see now.

    I am currently in the process of texturing it at the moment but as you can see from wire version it still need a good bit of optimization.

    Very nice, reminds me of Bioshock a bit cause of its design.
    Making the textures is going to be a pain in the butt though (unless you use premade within the program).

    This is great looking. I like the extra detail of the bucket with this hole and the bolts. Impressive stuff.

    Wow, that's awesome. Really impressive details. What program are you using if you don't mind me asking? I'm an AutoCAD hack myself, but I never draw anything that cool.

    Its about 6 hours work altogether but I have been working on it on and off for about 3 months. I personally use Cinema 4D.

    I think it's already well optimized, the wireframe is clean except the front of the tank.
    only few vertices to correct maybe, to make quad face instead of triangular.

    Do you texture it by unwarping UVW ? or procedural texture element by element ?

    Impressive [​IMG] I don't know much about 3D art, but I can tell a lot of thought went in to the design.

    awesome!

    to make it even better, i'd make the big muzzle more circular. it now looks a bit like it wouldnt work (even in a steampunk world)

    I know nothing about graphic art programming (or any other kind for that matter), but if you want a layman´s opinion, that looks awesome.

    To me it looks like something you could insert into a "Wild Wild West" sequel. LOL Like that would ever happen!
