- Discovery - Commercial Mesh
- Image Notes:
- Liftoff! is the first in a series of pics I plan to
create using a new Space Shuttle mesh I purchased- each
more detailed than the last. It is also the first image I
have created in 3D Studio Max 2.5! That's right, I finally
went out and upgraded. Now, I just need a new computer :)
- The Discovery mesh came pretty much as-is, but I added the
flames, smoke and background. The flames were created using
simple cones and applying a glow modifier to them. The
smoke is composed of two elements. The lower smoke is
actually composed of simple semi-transparent spheres, with
noise used for both bump-mapping and opacity. The top of
the 'smoke stack' is actually composed of spherical flame
modifiers. Finally, I imported the image into photoshop
and manually 'smeared' the edges of the smoke to make it
look a bit less artificial.
So what's up with the lack of updates??? I have some pretty
major things going on in my personal life right now...
Namely, I am getting married in July!
