This test model of a UAV (Unarmed Aerial Vehicle) Launcher was built while working at Blue Newt Software for a prospective client (guess who, haha). The end goal was to create a series of models and videos for use in training simulations.
I've always been particularly happy with how this came out. Most of my work at Blue Newt was in the automotive sector, so vehicles were textured to be new and clean, but never looked very realistic because of it. The goal of this model was to SPECIFICALLY add paint, dirt, rust, wear and tear, and I think it added a ton of realism to the end result.
