So I'm going to try and condense 3d my stuff into 1 thread - easier to keep track of. I had a lot of old stuff here before the crash, but I'll start off with something I started this weekend:

    It's good to see you back fractal :) Is it just me or might that be Vader's Tie?

    The amount of detail is amazing!

    Good to see you back, Ansel! I look forward to seeing this model progress.
  • alanch90alanch900 Posts: 0Member
    insane detail!
  • I think that's what he was working on last and it does look like Vader's Tie. Awesome detailing.

  • SamuraiSamurai176 Posts: 388Member
    Hey Ansel- you've got a lot of catching up to do, Simon's Y Wing is much closer to completion....

    :runs:
    More of an "Absolute Member", to be fair...

    Incredible details.. Great work
  • LarsenLarsen171 Posts: 0Member
    Sweet stuff mate:thumb:... Yeah I too think it's way easier to have all the models in one thread... just hope we don't get attached to one model in particular... then you won't hear anything but: "nice... but hows it coming on this or that model"

    Very annoying :D
  • al3dal3d176 Posts: 0Member
    Looks awsome man..:)....care to share some statistics?...
  • fractalspongefractalsponge246 Posts: 1,086Member
    ^ I try not to look at poly stats until it's done - less scary that way :)

    This is indeed Vader's TIE, for those who haven't figured it out already. But for those that haven't seen them already (since the thread died with the crash), here are the other members of the series I've done:

    TIE interceptor:

    TIE Fighter:

    More at: http://fractalsponge.net/gallery/

    So hopefully I can keep everything straight in a condensed thread. I have some old stuff I'll dredge up again eventually, for anyone new to SFM since the crash.

    Speaking from experience much? :lol:

    @Ansel: Jesus, Mary, and Joseph that's a lot of details on those TIE Fighters!
  • I was looking on your site... I didn't know you finished the droidekka. You completely modelled it with the normal "fractalsponge" detailing?
  • OzylotOzylot0 Posts: 0Member
    Thats pretty intense. Love it, do more ;) :thumb:

    I tend to get obsessive about the ISD myself, so I'll try not to post much of that and keep with other projects :)

    Such as that is, yes :)

    There are parts of it that I would like to redo, and maybe add to (like the back carapace), but otherwise I'm happy with it modelling wise. Needs textures of course, but it may be a while before I get it looking realistic. Not much of the WIPs are online, since I finished with it before I got my current site up and running. Eventually I'll put some of it up for people who haven't seen it before.

    Great work!

    Speaking as someone who is undergoing a TIE fighter as well I can appreciate how much of a pain it can be to plow through all of that minute detail, but you seem to eat it up. :) Can't wait to see more of the Vader model!

    Again, kudos.
  • fractalspongefractalsponge246 Posts: 1,086Member
    ^your's is looking mighty good too, I may add :)

    Anyways, results from tonight's work:

    Really nice. Have you seen Mike Verta's Tie? http://www.mikeverta.com/

    I only mention it for the wing material he replicated. You might email him on that.
  • stonkystonky171 Posts: 0Member
    Incredible, just incredible.

    I still have the original kit from it's first release that I put together when I was 7 years old, so this ship holds a special place in my heart. :)
  • JedilawJedilaw0 Posts: 0Member
    Okay, I have to ask: what the hell are you using for references? I've never seen any shots, even of the studio model, that show the level of detail you're modelling.


    Or are you taking the original design and adding even more detail?!? I shudder to think what a Falcon mesh would look like, done to your uber-degree of detail...mind, it's a good shuder, but still...
