Terran Marine With Gun by SgtHK Terran Marine With Gun by SgtHK
My Terran Marine model is finally complete.

Total time spent in making this was probably about 2 months. I further reduced the polygon count from 1.9 million in the last submission to 1.3 million.

The gun probably took about 3 days to make, including texturing. The rigging took me 2 days to get right. More technical details available below:

- Programs: 3ds Max, Adobe Photoshop
- Renderer: Mental Ray
- Polycount: 1.3 million
- Rig system: CAT
- Render time: 28 mins
- Number of texture maps used: 140
- Lighting setup: Skylight with HDRI map + Logarithmic Exposure Control

Have a very good day to y'all.

Hi,

Do you mind to tell me your workflow? I'm also working on a mechanical concept. The style is similar to this Terran machine, and I'm struggling at making rounded and complex shapes. Do you block out and sculpt the details in Zbrush then retopo or do you poly modelling the whole thing?

In my hopes that you will say yes, I have made my edits in prep for it's use. I cut out the black background and made it transparent and took your signature and added it to the gun so that the image can be integrated with the site but you also maintain credit for your work.

Permission to use on my Starcraft 2 fansite that I'm building? I've been having trouble finding a large good quality marine image to use for the units picture in its bio section.

I thought he poly limit on max was way lower than 1.3 million. how did your computer even open the file.

SgtHK Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012
It opens 1.3 million polys just fine. Maybe your video card is not powerful enough or you must have used an older version of max.

I remember being told once that the limit for a mesh was like 100,000 polys. well actually your model is made up of a lot of different parts...okay i don't know what i'm talking about ignore me.

And considering that they only wear that armour to wield that gun, all of this seems very redundant.
