Gettin' old

Sign you're getting old: Wishing those darn kids upstairs would quit playing the drums past midnight

Oh and here's more work on the Aethon

Aethon progress

This is the Aethon, Dee's smaller airplane that launches from the Zephyrus. Or part of it-- I'm still modeling it RIIIGHT NOW

(FYI Aethon is Latin for one of the horses that pulled that pulled the sun across the sky)


Apparently I didn't take into account the propeller size of this thing (somehow it worked on paper). Easy fix though!

This feels about right

there has GOT to be a better way to do this. This one render took 33 minutes and there's not that much going on!

reference photos

You know, "collecting reference footage" is the perfect reason to go outside and play in the snow.

So how DOES it feel to fly around mountain tops? I don't have the budget to hire out an airplane/helicopter, but I can make do with snow and my point and click camera
