Study Models Tank by fmacmanus Study Models Tank by fmacmanus
Welp, haven't uploaded stuff for a while... There's alot I could but it just isn't good work. Learning all the basics.

This is my Study Models Tank- hand built with epoxy and hot glue, then primed white. Am working on a matte painting including the tank now. Originally was based on Turkish architecture(hence the domes from Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque etc) but the parts I found along the way changed the design.

***Treads haven't been added in this version!

Hagia Sophia isn't turkish architecture, it's Christian Byzantine. Hagia Sophia was built well before the Turks conquered Istanbul (in 1453) where it is located.

Yup yup I visited Turkey a while ago, have studied it as well
I wanted the tank to represent Turkey itself, which includes the mosques. Of course Sophia wasn't really a mosque at first but more converted- yet it still stands as an iconic image for Istanbul. Perhaps turkish architecture wasn't the perfect choice of words but more a simplification so I didn't have to go into detail about the history!
Either way, I'm a big fan of all of it.

the thing looks crazy. Seen a few of the in progress images on facebook to.

Could see this thing as a tank in starwars or something.

Not having a lot of high quality rendered work isn't a bad thing. Setting up basics is more important. a well rendered image with flaws in the set up is never going to be as good as it can be!
