Thank you so much ...did you made a 3d model of this ship ...or is this 3d art with Photoshop ?
Last question and I will not bother you anymore ...how do you make some good textures...I have been using Iron Forge .I don't know how to make them in Photoshop I want to make some armor platting for my ships..
Modelled in 3D with composition in 2D. Theres so many ways to create textures its hard to describe them all. Summary: Draw outlines, use greyscale to define height, save as bump map. Blend texture and/or noise, paint and dirt over the top. Blend a wear layer over the top by painting in exposed areas.
You could also model the panels and render out a bump/displacement map.
Beautiful ship, what program do you use for the modeling? How did you come up with the ship? Was it just one clear image for you from the beginning or did it take lots of drawing, sketching, pondering and that stuff? Sorry I sound like a multiple choice test lol.
