Chest and Shoulder Armor Shading/Texture Test

Modeled and textured the shoulder and Chest Armor. Was building this off body geo that felt too slim. Im now re proportioning and beefing up so spacing between elements will change later. Might hop onto building the Cod piece and Saber next.

Belt and Chest Box Texture tests

Here are some render tests of the Belt and chest box now with Emissives! So got the lights glowing and textures looking like a lived in used asset, not factory fresh which I'm not a fan of. Anyway more tests to come, going to get the body posed and ready for chest armor and fabric tests!

Belt Test

Testing out some renders in Marmoset with maps generated out of Substance Painter. Still trying to teak render settings to get the look I had in SP. I will also separate the Button Geo as they are to be  illuminated buttons not dull plastic, so emissive needs applying.

Darth Vader Collar

This is collar asset of my full character Vader sculpt I'm working on. Ill be posting some renders of the chest box and belt soon. I've been busy with work as my current project is cranking down. Renders were done in KeyShot and modeling in Maya. I roughed out the head real quick and will start sculpting that soon as well. In the mean time this is just a temp to show how the collar sits in context.

The Butter knife

So a few years ago I did a freelance piece for
This piece was a test for the company to print out and mold an asset that would potentially become an functional butter knife for the tourist market. In the end, the dealer that commissioned this test didn't end up going with this method of production and the job was done.

I did finally get around to Rendering this thing out to show what it could have been if the client gave the 3D print method the green light to go for it.

Rendered in Keyshot, modeled in Softimage/Maya combo and textured in Photoshop.

Here is a screen of the wire frame of the knife.

And here is the final 3D printed knife, done in a resin. It Measured about 7 inches in length (I dont remember the exact specific dimensions of all the components).

Finished up this Vader piece, took longer than I wanted but work has been busy. It looks darker on my laptop but lighter on my work machine. So hopefully its readable :p
