It’s been a while since my last animation work but I thought this is the best character to return to the great world of 3D animation, It was really funny to model a Minion from “Despicable me” but it’s going to be awesome to move it!
Modelled in 3DsMax (low poly model around 2000 tris), rigged with Autodesk CAT, I made in a couple of days with 2048×2048 texture maps and rendered with Nvidia Mental Ray.
I finished the killzone 2 prop, It’s some kind of gas tank on a metal platform, It’s based on a concept from Leading Light for PS3 game Killzone 2, I enjoyed a lot the texturing with all the scratches and the rusty look of the metals.
As one of my mentors said “It’s always cool to make rusty things in video-games”.
It has 6400 tris and I used a single 2048×2048 texture map, all rendered in UDK.
