For about the passed six months, I've been working on a project to add a retro spin to the game Robo Recall, from Epic Games. A very high definition VR shooter with a mod kit released to the public, it's very easy to jump in and create your own weapons, map, and even enemies! this is one of my most prized models for my retro series. Based off of the P90 and skinned with mysterious designs (inspired by Hyper Light Drifter), the Planeswalker P90 is ready to take on any TAL-9 androids it comes across with the power of space-time!
Here, you can see the original model, before color correcting (I used gray tones to start off with because they're easier to see in MagicaVoxel's black background) and formed the model with a very retro-inspired cell shaded approach. I wanted the orange designs to feel like they were filled to the brim with energy, hence the brighter orange sections at certain choke points on the model.
After finishing the original model, I went back in and color corrected, making the blacks closer to the original P90 colors, while keeping my signature oranges.
In Blender, I tested out several viewpoints to make sure the P90 looked good in normal FPS's as well.
One amazing thing about Magicavoxel is how it's palettes are made. Any png can be spliced into Magica to create a custom color palette. Here are some of my favorites -
This palette reminds me of a certain army from a certain space drama.
I feel like I'm in Ireland looking at this one. The muted biege and subtle greens look very nice on this gun. ^^
You have to have a golden skin, right?
I'll be adding more of these weapons from my Vox Recall project soon. I hope you all enjoyed this one!
