Custom Ptolemaios 1 and 2 in 3D!

Post by Arvis Taljik » Wed May 12, 2010 6:22 pm

Since this is the multimedia section and my first introductory post, I figured I'd throw some images around of my most recent Gundam work in 3D! :D

Please keep in mind that I went with a bit of a personal edge on these ships, so they aren't 100% accurate lol.

What'd you use to make them? Pretty good.

Models were built and UV mapped in Wings 3D with textures made in Photoshop. I will admit that my texture skills have improved significantly since I built these about 6 months ago. If I get the time then I will likely end up re-texturing these.

Thanks for the comment! :D

Very impressive did you model the catapults and all the other moving bits aswell?

Only "moving" parts that I modeled were the missile hatches, dorsal GN Cannons, and the side GN Turrets. For my first stab at this uniquely-shaped ship I consider this to be not half bad. If I do end up going back and re-building this model then I'll likely model in all the catapults and other moving pieces.

It's a really good, solid design, faithful to the original by all accounts. *thumbs up*

Well, in a total bent on my two favorite mecha anime's, I'm now working on a hybrid Ptolemaios 2/Nadesico B design that's turning out pretty good so far. Once it's fully modeled and textured I'll post a few renders up in this forum.
