Getting sick of the seaQuest. I'll put it aside for awhile.
I've ALWAYS wanted a physical model of the Roger Young from Starship Troopers, so for this project I'm going to model for 3d printing, not rendering. Which means clean, closed, watertight meshes - no cheating.
There's a few models available on the Internet, but they're not very accurate or the mesh isn't 3d printable. So, like Thanos, I'll just have to do it myself.
I've roughed in the major shapes by modeling over an existing 3d model (digitawn's). Now to start examining all the photo ref I have and adjust my model forms to be screen accurate.
Then I'll figure out how best to break it up for 3D printing and assembly.
Then I'll get into the finer details and greebles.
Then rig lighting.
Considering I'm a noob to the last 2 steps, I'll probably finish this project by the year the movie actually takes place...
