- Starman -
Part of my (not really Low Poly anymore :D ) Isometric Series.
- Main model Created using Blender 2.79 with colour grading, post processing, texture creation, extra smoke and effects ect. in Photoshop CC 2018 / Lightroom Classic CC -
- So this is definitely my most complex model to date, taking me about two weeks to complete, featuring several smoke simulations running at once, accurate and fully detailed models of the falcon heavy rocket from reference images and particle systems and taking over 12 hours to render -
"When Falcon Heavy lifted off, it became the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. With the ability to lift into orbit nearly 64 metric tons (141,000 lb)---a mass greater than a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel--Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost.
Following liftoff, the two side boosters separated from the center core and returned to landing site for future reuse.
Falcon Heavy put a Tesla Roadster and its passenger, Starman, into orbit around the sun. At max velocity Starman and the Roadster will travel 11 km/s (7mi/s) and travel 400 million km (250 million mi) from Earth"
- This close up render really shows off the detail in the smoke and in the Falcon Heavy model -
- The launched version of the Falcon heavy - this differs slightly to the original render of the rocket, with a slightly less 'advertised' SpaceX logo on the front, and a bigger Falcon Heavy logo on the nose cone, also with the landing legs being white - This rocket is definitely my favourite part of the model! -
- Clay render - this really nicely shows off all the details in the smoke and the ground without the volumetrics interfering -
- Progression of the model - the vast majority of the two week development went towards the smoke effects as this is my first time ever using smoke for a project! -
