These look really great Redspear, and absolutely fantastic for a first foray into 3d modelling, I could just do wonky looking cubes and horrible mashups of spheres and pyramids for months and months when I was first starting to tinker with 3d

That is so weird the face in the window of the cobraIII, :shock: I swear it's just a bit of a rusty metal grime texture from a free texture collection stuck into the glow map to add a bit of dirt

That must have been about a million years ago judging by your current stuff :wink:
Actually, I've got an idea/request for you but that's for another thread perhaps...

Meanwhile, I can't decide if this is my best or my worst model so far...

Redspear: Your models remind me of the sprites I used to design on my C=64. Lots of bas-relief to emphasize the shape.

I like them a lot.

That's more than a face, mate..there's a full figure and more, in there. Here's what I see when I look at it.. I've outlined the various items in different colours to make them easier to recognise.

Instruments/equipment - Yellow
Pilots seat - Green
Pilot - Red

Most games have some sort of paddling-pool-and-water-wings beginning to ease you in: Oolite takes the rather more Darwinian approach of heaving you straight into the ocean, often with a brick or two in your pockets for luck. ~ Disembodied

I reckon he's got a beard - Riker-style, perhaps?

Definitely bearded... A very Roguish fellow. The kind who often finds himself in trouble with the authorities. :lol:

So that's what it's called (I genuinely didn't know :oops: ). I'm glad one of us knows what I'm doing :lol:
Thanks for the encouragement :)

Always welcome, seldom heard :wink:
Thank you :)

In other news...

Rather than draw the edges (badly) I've tried to draw around them... (again, badly :roll: )

Admit it Griff! You're a bit of a genius :wink:

My spare time is currently quite limited, but another facelift is on it's way :) . Don't hold you breath though, it might take a while. :mrgreen:

Re-textured from Dertien's Puma Clipper.

When I first looked at it I saw "ARS" on the ship to the far left :lol: (sorry, I expect I'll grow up one day :P )

Nice retexture of a nice model.
Very much appreciate all the facelifts and docking tunnel stuff that you've been working on spara :D

Does this look like a Fer-de-Lance to you or have I gone completely bonkers?

I'm afraid there are a few more where that one came from, if anyone wants to see them. Mostly the same types Redspear seems to have been working on, oddly enough.
