It's been a long time since I have posted here. Well about a year ago I started modeling the Icarus 2 from the movie Sunshine (2007) but ran into difficulties during the modeling process and decided to shelve the project for the time being. About two weeks ago I was on vacation and decided to look at taking up modeling on the ship again, with all the new tricks and techniques I have learned in the year since I shelved the project....
I took one look at my old mesh and scrapped it entirely! This is a completely new build, with an emphasis on realism and accuracy and DETAIL!
I'm still trying to get the lighting down, which is difficult as this ship was portrayed in deep shadow behind the shield, yet still 'viewable'.
I hope you guys like it!
