armor fans - anything odd about this model tank?


Master Member
hi steel heads,
i wasn't a fan of _._._. until i saw this model tank,would anyone care to fill in the blanks?

It's a cgi rendering done with global illumination. pretty common these days, every minor software can do these renderings quite easily.

But you are right, quite impressive to the untrained eye nevertheless...

C.G.I. those were the letters i was looking for darth mut, quite impressive as you say, the artist is in the process of giving it camo paint job and weathering it.

i wish i could do stuff like this

It definitely is impressived but I think the "tell" is the barrel diameter trasition - wher eit sslopes fom narrow to wide. Its a bit too smooth and the shadow too uniform. Like most computer models its "too perfect" and that's what gives it away. In general computer effects/rendering fall into these categories. Its too clear, moves too smooth, too detailed. It's not something that you pick up on right away but your subconscious minds says - there's something wrong with that ... I'm just not sure what...

None the less it 's still a technological marvel - and I love the progress we all are making!
