  1. Final compositions "End of the Line" (Flying train submarine). This composition combines several unique types of machines into one. The first is a 19th century steam locomotive, and the other is a submarine based off the Nautilus, from the novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea published by Jules Verne in 1870.(Walt Disney movie 1954) Add on some Chitty Chitty bang bang inspired wings and you have a flying train sub.(Suspension of reality required) Composition 2 "War_Machine" This steampunk vehicle combines the steam locomotive and sub. but omits the wings, and adds a military inspired tank to its design. Thank you to all of those involved in holding this contest.This was a challenging contest in which I pushed 3D-Coat to the limit.I used 3d-Coat for the majority of the modeling and texturing, as well as rendering,composite was done in Photoshop.
  2. Just a couple more assets before I post the final images.
  3. That's true Tony,I did make some gravel with the 2d-Paint voxel feature, but the scene got really heavy.Anyway I abandoned this route for this project.
  4. RR Tracks Laying down RR track the easy way.(No heavy lifting required) I used the sketch tool with a simple B/W profile image to create the track. Then make the wooden RR ties with a cube and assemble the pieces. Drag the small track section to the spines panel, and then you can lay track from one side of the earth to the other without breaking a sweat.
  5. Thanks Tony, I think I used 8X. Of course it should be decimated if using multiple copies in a scene. Take care
  6. Tree ...only God can make a tree But this is good enough for me . I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree. A tree whose hungry mouth is prest Against the earth's sweet flowing breast; A tree that looks at God all day, And lifts her leafy arms to pray; A tree that may in summer wear A nest of robins in her hair; Upon whose bosom snow has lain; Who intimately lives with rain. Poems are made by fools like me, But only God can make a tree Joyce Kilmer
  7. Escape hatch/manhole The hole is greater than the sum of its parts.
  8. Submarine turret/Bridge This submarine is based off the nautilus, from the movie 20,000 leagues under the sea.I have scaled it down to fit my composition
  9. Ship Hull (actually a submarine hull) What? A ships hull?But I thought you were making a train.I must have lost my train of thought. Well I originally made this model for another contest some years back and thought I'd try to replicate it in 3D-Coat,but I'm not really happy with the results. I layed out the original forms in voxels, then retopoed it and tried to use the retopo tools to define it, but really the low poly modeling tools need more robust features for this model.(or I just need to figure them out). Anyway... I think I will just use the original low poly mesh for this piece.
  10. Thank you AgentSam, I appreciate you stopping by. I have actually finished the project for the most part, but thought I'd take the extra time to make this a process tutorial as well.I know there are a lot of new users who could probably benefit from these tips. Take care!
  11. Tanks and Hoses Not sure what these do, maybe bleed moisture out of the system? Mainly curves and cylinders detailed with the extrude brush.
