I looked through the original blenderartists thread, and the material you used is marvelous, it almost has a greasy finish when the light is shining on it from a low angle.

Thanks a lot for showing so much interest. :) Do you mean the material on the Vic Viper? It took some refinement and a few tries before reaching this result, so I'm very glad for your appreciation of it.

All of it :P But I was referring to the material on the keyboard.

That's awesome!  How did you do the laser beam effect?

:iconjuanjosetorres:
JuanJoseTorres Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2013   Digital Artist
Thanks. :) It's quite simple actually: emission and transparent shaders are mixed using the layer weight node.

Love the concept. Kindof reminds me of an old wing commander setup from long ago... :D Very nice.

Do you do animation by any chance.

This is looking really good.

JuanJoseTorres Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2013   Digital Artist
Thank you for your comments. :) Animation is one of my interests, but something I still have to learn and master. I'm planning to animate something using these assets, but not in this photo-realistic style (at least not yet).

Oh hey. How come you don't try and submit these to the blender gallery?

Which Blender gallery?

This one www.blender.org/features-galle…

don't know how you would go about putting it there? but i could see your work on it. Your really good!

Ah, that gallery. I think members of Blender Foundation's staff pick those images themselves from places such as Blenderartists. From what I have seen, getting your work showcased there depends not only on the quality of your work, but also on a certain degree on luck.

Aha thats cool. I need to master modelling before i really should be doing animation. I'd say i'm pretty OK at 2D animation but i would love to be able to make some cool 3D stuff too.

I will look forward to seeing some of these assets animated. Can i ask if you could make a quick 3D turntable of the assets at all using some nice lighting so it's possible to see how the lights works on it. I like how the light reacts with the plastic and would love to see it as the model rotates.

Obviously if it's too much of a bother for you to render out a turntable of the quality thats fine.

Just my little question.

I have some pending projects, so I don't know if I'll find the time, but If I do, I'll try to get some medium resolution turntables.

Well yeah. projects are more important!

Hmmmmmm can i ask what they are? or are they a secret? XD
Reply
:iconjuanjosetorres:
JuanJoseTorres Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2013   Digital Artist
LOL. No, it's no secret at all. :) It's just that I don't like to talk or post about things very early into development. I usually wait until I have something interesting to show, preferably finished projects, but not always. In any case, I'm researching asset creation for an isometric game (mainly sprites and terrain tiles). Blender can be used to create those assets rather effortlessly.
