Hey /3/for the last year I've been preparing to change careers to 3D (I do video editing and special effects right now), learning maya and zbrush on my free time and such. I think I might be ready to take the plunge but I'm not sure.pic related is the best model I've made yet.
>>574930shit wrong pic
>>574930>>574931looks good to me, but what the fuck do i know
>>574952what can I do to improve my work?
>>574959add some organic shapes into ur hard surface modeling. add some simple background.
>>574962dont do this. Tor wouldn't.
>>574930Post your Artstation
>>574930T H I C CHICC
>>574931he looks lost
>>574930>>574931That's a Dreadnought right? The scratches are too big, and I'm probably alone in this but in the lore Dreadnoughts are asleep (via drugs) anytime they aren't actively engaged in battle and their robot exterior is treated as a sacred and precious chapter relic that is pretty much endlessly attended to by the Techpriests (and their servants). Of course campaigns can go on for hundreds of years, and I'm not sure how long a Dreadnought can be deployed in one go; in theory time spent awake degrades their brain due to the Imperium not fully understanding their technology anymore, the stresses of their artificial existence on their psyche, and the injuries they sustained that resulted in their living entombment (which their life support system doesn't cure, only halt). The point is, they're pretty heavily tended to anytime they aren't actively ripping and tearing, and at the very least I think that would mean being buffed, repainted, etc especially since the Imperium believes that small rituals appease the Machine Spirit.
>>575027Oh also the render is really bland. Poor lighting, it should probably be rotated the other way because the Autocannon is the eye-catcher, and it should probably be doing a cool action pose, ideally with a simple but appropriate background.
>>575027>>575028Thank you anon, I've actually been planning to revisit that model since it's been a few months already and I learned a bunch in the meantime so I'll take these into consideration while working on v2>>574987would having a background help with that?>>575029sorry, I'm gonna pass. No offense anon but I'm a wageslave with very little free time, which I'm trying to use to git gud, I probably wouldn't be much help in my current form
>>575053BG would help. The model looks good, I like it, but it would look good-er with some context for sure. just my $.02
Oh a redemptor pattern dreadnaught? Modeling is reasonable. Depends what it is supposed to be used for, offline CG? Not nearly enough details. RTS game would be passable but not a FPS.
