Steampunk New History 3d Challenge

Well I guess I will start something here and see how it goes. And yes I am going to be doing a car ( go figure right? ) Just started this a little bit ago to lay out a base for the vehicle before doing some more brainstorming on additional shaping needed. Here is the first of hopefully many updates on this process. They will mainly all be shaded flat and shaded flat with subdivision as per contest requests. At least till the end of the final stages.

@eladd Maybe season 2 they will. Now that it got a rather welcome response for the first season.

Never really thought about it, I just started modeling and low and behold this came about. LOL

@DefaultCube well of course :wink: , it is going to have rockets, rope grapling harpoon launchers, pipes galore, and plenty of doo dads and thingamahjiggies. Hopefully get all that done soon enough that I will have enough time to put a couple balloons or zeppelin in the sky as well as background filler.

Danke, still bunches and bunches to do. Just wanted to get a base color paint shader going before adding in the damage/grunge. But still got to do all the steampunk “greebles” too.

Got a little more done with the materials so here is the progress of that so far. Still got to adjust the shiny metal bump strength and tweak the windshield visor materials. Then I can move on to the additional detail pieces to add and do materials for them as well. Move on to the landscape once that is all done.

Looks like a taxi from that old game quaratine! Or is this a futurist post apocolypse moby dick?

Well blending is on pause again. So this is not going to be done for the challenge but when I can get back to blending again I might pick it back up as an individual project.

Ok this is as far as it got. Unless some kind of miracle happens and I get at least some time for the remainder of an environment and more detailing ( AKA more steampunk gadgets and such ) So at this point this is all she wrote on this.
