Lawmaster Progress - Wheels Finished by hoskins78
Lawmaster Progress - Wheels Finished
It's taken a while, but I'm happy to say that both wheels are now done.

When checking how a nice side elevation render would look, I realised some of my previous bits and pieces were out of proportion, so they had to be adjusted.

I must have then modelled about 4 different versions of the side support / chain guard elements before I came up with something I was happy with - based on photo reference info, but not necessarily the same ;)

Still, as a relative novice to Modo, all good practice. I'm eager now to start on the engine area!

Lawmaster Drive Components by hoskins78
Lawmaster Drive Components
Added a chain, drive mechanism and basic support arm. Most of this will be hidden by the chain guard, but I fancied the challenge of modelling the chain, and it will be slightly visible from the opposite side in any case.

Continuing to learn lots of new techniques, so hopefully, this project should speed up now, over coming weeks.

Journal History

Steve Hoskins
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United Kingdom
I used to draw and paint since before I can remember, and was a huge comic art fan as a kid - I even considered it as a career when I left college, but I didn't pursue it.

These days I like to do 3D render based images, with just a little postwork to finish off. But while my images are as close to pure rendered output as I can get, my aim is to achieve a more rounded result with my lighting and atmospherics, to give a fuller and more artistic end result.
Not sure I always achieve that, but this is what I am striving for ;)

Most of my work to date has been done with Poser and Vue, but now I'm interested in creating my own characters and scene content, so I expect you'll be seeing more of my new ZBrush creations than anything for a while, although my intention will still be to export these to Modo or Vue for scene rendering once I become competent enough.

My work has so far been purely hobby based, but I would love the chance to change that at some point should the opportunity arise.

Tools of the trade:

ZBrush 4.0 : Modo 501 : Vue 8.4 : Photoshop Elements 7

Current Residence: South Wales
deviantWEAR sizing preference: definitely XL - I'm 6'5"
Favourite genre of music: Rock
Favourite style of art: 3D render based

Yes, all hobby work - thanks for the compliment :)

 

I've not posted much in a while, but am teaching myself modelling skills (with Modo). I don't seem to have as much free time as I used to, but there will be more content (at some point) ;)
