Takemikazuchi Test

Trying to get used to this fancy-pants node system and all of the new stuff that seems to have come out for both Blender and Lightwave.

Takemikazuchi Update

I've forgotten a lot about how to go about modeling, my shortcuts I have to relearn, and some of my older plugins don't seem to exist (or they've moved/changed names). To try to recall all of this again, I've gone back to simpler bits in terms of shapes and reworked the takemikazuchi model I was hoping to finish. I've never seen an exact set of prints for this one so it's still on-the-fly with some reference from relatively modern carriers.

Updated lightwave

I thought maybe blogger was going to be killed. ...Suddenly it's almost 5 years later.. I've relocated my meshes, updated lightwave and found that I don't remember a thing! So many other CG packages do a good job that maybe the LW update was not necessary. In terms of these Mobile suits, for sure these meshes are ok to work with but could use some touch ups. Considering the CPU/GPU power is leagues over what it was when I first started, I could probably revisit much of these and give them a good update. I say that like it's going to happen..... :D

Finding Stuff - Trying to Return

Every now and then I start up the ol' lightwave setup and try to render something or come across something old. I'm amazed at how my laptops run rings around my rigs of a decade ago. The rig now barely does anything, but seeing it fly through old render jobs compared to all those years back... The few images I find nowadays are rekindling my interest. I'm not even sure when I made this one, probably back in '09, but the mistakes I see I suddenly feel the need to correct.

Gundam MKII: Fed test

Feels like I really need to get back to this, but I'm beat when I get home and the weekends are not as open as they used to be. Ugh. Trying out some test textures, but I'm looking at other directions.

Gerbera Tetra Kai: Test

I'm at a point where I want to clean up some of the textures, step back and see where I've gone nuts. Working with a scene that maybe helps illustrate to me where I could change. Some of the recent MG boxart really shines with awesome textures and design in general.

Background Ship

Working on a background ship for a scene I was thinking about. This is based on the seed series of water vessels with some Aegis-class influence. Still have other stuff to do, but I thought I'd give this a roll too...

Full Armor Unicorn Gundam: Leg Armament

Better than no start. I figured I'd start off my week with something that can easily get my foot in the Full Armor door.

Full Armor Gundam Unicorn: 1

Alright, so a few parts are colliding, but we'll fix that. So I suppose why not just finish the full armor job, eh. I wouldn't guess there'd be all that much to add to finish the armored parts, so here we go...

Shield Booster Armed Armor DE 2

That should be pretty close. It's like I've forgotten how much fun this is. I think I'll get back to exia and relive the thrill... So many new gundams have come out that I haven't even kept up with!
