Giving new life to an old model
LightWave 3D 11.5 has been released and I was really excited to try out some of the new features. Needing a scene to work on I grabbed this old car model that had made several years ago, it’s a BMW M Coupe. I wasn’t thrilled with the previous textures on it so I opened it up and redid some of the textures for it. The model could still use a little work but I’m pretty happy with how the texture looks.
In other news, my Blender / LightWave fluid tutorial for 3D World magazine was released in the UK and I heard good things about it. The issue hits US newsstands officially today, though my local book store said they will have in on the 8th. If you’re in the US go pick up 3D World issue #165! I’m working on two jobs this week so I’m keeping pretty busy.
