RI F3 Bolt – Finished (more or less)

Here is the finished RI F3 Bolt. I bought Substance Painter and this was the first ship I was using to really test more of the features with (more than a couple of the others I’d posted previously during the trial-period). Granted, I have a lot to learn still but enjoyed how this one turned out. I bought the Substance Painter to Blender node from BlenderBrit in the BlenderMarket to help streamline my output maps back to Cycles. I am including a render here from IRay, the built-in renderer within SP. I still think my normals are messed up a bit but I am still preferring the Cycles renders at this point. I highly recommend buying the BlenderBrit node if you use SP. It’s saved me a ton of time already. Anyway . . . here are the renders. The 4-view image is from Cycles. The standalone is from IRay. It’s not perfect but done enough for me to move to the next one. Ha!!

I hope you enjoy and thanks for viewing.

RI F3 Bolt (WIP)

Hi everyone. Normally I don’t post WIP stuff but thought I’d go ahead and show what I’ve been working on lately. I purchased Substance Painter to add to my workflow. There’s a lot to it but I’ve been having fun learning and exploring its capabilities along with B3D. Here are some screen-captures of my latest ship; RI F3 Bolt. I have a lot left to do with it but I’m enjoying the process so far. For my final renders I will export the images back to render in B3D Cycles.

In the meantime I hope you enjoy! Thanks for checking it out.

RI Tigershark Mrk2

Hi. Here are two images featuring the new RI Tigershark Mrk2. I wanted to keep a loose connection to my first Tigershark design styling and expand it a bit. I was pleased with the result. I hope you enjoy and thanks for viewing! 🙂
