A Different Kind of 3D Modeling...

Recently I came across a website for a board game with all sorts of monsters, tanks, jet fighters, even a dragon or two. (I wonder if anyone knows what I'm talking about)
I wasn't as much interested in the actual game as I was the pieces that it was played with, amazingly detailed models of all sorts of war machines and such, they looked amazing, but with prices to match, sometimes about $60 just for an unpainted kit of a model that was probably not more that a few inches tall. As you can expect, I don't have the money to shell out a gazillion bucks for a model of some sort of Sci-Fi tank.

So I tried to make my own tank design and model, it doesn't compare to the ones I saw, but in my opinion, not too bad for being made out of card stock and cardboard.

Current render time:1hr 11 mins on a 2.8 Ghz dual core machine.

Fractal Fun

Been messing around with Apophysis, these renders are by no means the limit of what Apopysis can do, I'm just not the most experienced with the program yet.
Gimp was used to add effects to some of the renders.

Feel free to use these image for your own blog or website, just be sure to link back, thank you!

Fire and Ice Space Scene

Made another planet scene, this time Apophysis  was used for the cloud effects and the stuff coming off of the planet.
