Hello Fans, Friends, and Fellow Fanatics,
Sorry for not posting lately, I have been working on some big projects, but I wanted to do a little post on a small project I am working on pulling together on the side! It started as a small military experiment with a helmet experiment working with the SUBSURF MODIFIER effect. It gives smooth edges and creates a nice effect on your normally polygonal models. I also used the SOLIDIFY MODIFIER to give some thickness and depth to it.
In Wireframe Mode you can see some of the details in the shaping. I took a Sphere and cut it in half and extruded the edges to get the shape of the helmet and then turned a simple cube into the straps for the helmet.
After giving the helmet shape and applying the Modifiers, I worked on the textures for the helmet. Giving it a simple military feel.
Give it a quick Render and see what it looks like!
Feeling inspired after seeing the Captain America: Winter Soldier film, I decided to throw in some tribute materials into it and make a cool little package animation using some of these techniques.
After the Wireframe is completed, I apply textures to that, and give the text a slight Glossy Material setting.
And of course, I had to do something Characteristic of the “Star-Spangled Man with a Plan”. So I am working on building the shield.
Just a start. I have a few more additions coming. But let me know what you think!
