B-52 External Tanks, and Website Changes
Hello all! I guess it wouldn’t be a weekend without getting a bit of work done on the B-52 3D model. Sometimes I work on artwork, as time permits, throughout the week. Lately I’ve only had time to make incremental changes. It’s taken a bit longer than I would have liked, but this weekend I was able to make a few changes to the plane.
First thing on the list was creating external fuel tanks, which you see here. I “eyeballed” the shape and dimensions from photos and models since I found no drawings for them. After that, I gave the wings their characteristic in-flight upswept look by bending them up a bit.
Then it was a matter of exporting the model into Eon Vue again from 3DS Max, reapplying it’s textures, and making some test renders to see how it all looked.
Now it’s a matter of finishing the textures so I can move on to focusing on scenery and atmosphere.
This was just some simple terrain and clouds I made just to see what it might look like with scenery in the background. Not finished by any means, but it’s going in the right direction.
The biggest change is that I‘ve lowered prices on most of my prints to make them a bit more affordable! You can check that out on my product page.
I also added a borderless 30x20 inch print option to my RF-4C Phantom artwork, “Alone, Unarmed, and Unafraid.” I‘ll begin offering borderless versions of my other work in the near future for anyone who doesn’t want a border around their artwork.
