Even more!

Need more ships! Started on another one in the escort for the Takemikazuchi. This is similar to the ship on the sword impulse MG box art. Working on the details after the initial basic effort.

Wing Normal

Running into old meshes is great fun! Whenever the new EW Wing Zero comes to master grade, I may snap that up and use it to fix this guy.

Takemikazuchi: side ships

Trying to make even more boats, would be great to have a decent scene. On the bright side, I'm remember more on modelling, on the down side, I'm feeling the need for more workstations.

Murasame update

Slowly also updating the Murasame for the carrier, as well as creating a few small variants. Also pulling out the old tablet to start making some crew members.

Still on it...

Still working on the water and adding more ships. Conveniently running out of memory a great deal so I'm probably going to have to bump that up in the near future. The astrays - the dumbed down version of the red frame created earlier as well as the flight unit, need shields and guns and the ship itself could use more detail -- and maybe roll back the fog a bit.

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.
