One of the best comics ive ever read, and the reason ive made transformers 3d models for the past 2 years. Time to move on, and make my own characters/giant robots. But befour i do i figured id go out in style.
Trying to up my game a bit, and tell a little story in the process. Stuffs more fun when things aren't just a baron landscape. Thanks to "rustythe1" for the use of his ship model. I wasent going to build something that complex in a night.. and its free to use.
Some adventures in mental ray. Learned how to combine the mi_car_paint_phen, coupled with a normal map.
Using the bump combiner node ( a special node i had to hunt down off the net) I was finally able to connect the damn thing.
Using the relationship editor i added the mi_car_paint_phen shader to the bump combiner, by connecting the results output, to the
M_input. Then i piped in the 2dbump node into M_bump_0, and enable m_bump in the property's tab for the bump combiner.
A hdr and a few area lights later i wound up with this. And with a lack of background, what else could i put in there..
It had to be 80's lasers..
