Have done another re-design to my helicarrier model. Can call this one finished at last. Now to work on the materials and lighting
The actual illustration is over 10k px wide so this is a smaller compressed version. I will try and host the raw image somewhere soon.

Love the detail in the modeling, looking forward to the finished image.
About texturing techniques:
My advice is to start involving in blender - cycles render engine.
Have a look on the box-blended-mapping method for instance. No UVs, excellent solution for this case.

Thanks for this. I have used blender before but was put off by the interface and went back to THEA.
I will look into it once more in a few weeks when I have time and see what results I can get. Ill be sure to drop you a line when I inevitably get stuck!
this thing gets better and better...I don't know how you have the patience to get so much detail into it. I need to send this over to joe quesada at marvel..
I think as its personal and I have no client or specific deadline I can take my time with it. I put it down sometimes for months and then go back to it for a few hours etc.
My way of modelling is to take an a section, an engine for example. Then work on that in a separate document. That way it feels like I am doing a lot and because I cant see the rest of the un-detailed model, mentally it makes things feel a lot less daunting and I amble to crack on with it.
I probably have about 20 files of different sections, they only come together when I take an image or render for a public post.
Yes please send it on to your contacts, I was going to ask you a while ago actually, not that I am touting for their business but I like them to see my idea on it and appreciate it for that.
I managed to get my Avatar Helicopter model to the team who actually designed it for the movie last year!
Your work is amazing.
