M240 Bot

A small modelling project after Alien Isolation submission at work. Started as a weapon trailer for my AV8B until I found a cool reference of CROWS (Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station) and decided to mount it with 2 M240 on top. So, I shall name it as a SVB (Scout vehicle bot?) or whatever.Weapon_TrailerWIP01

Update, added an electric motor on the back and more details on top, cablesWeapon_TrailerWIP04 Weapon_TrailerWIP05

 

Textured version below, using substance designer, awesome package and save lots of time compare to texturing traditionally in photoshop. Good old days.

Finally done!

Comp with backplate photo taken at the company basement carpark + HDRI mirror ball.

Started with mental ray in 3ds Max 2010 but I have lots of problem with production shaders although I’ve been following closely on Zap Mental Ray tips. At last I use Vray with slightly different workflow. Learn a lot.
