Rocket..Yeah! Satellite of Love Pt. 4

So I am calling this done. Maybe I will go back and update like I have with a few other pieces but right now I'm digging where its at now. Here are the final renders:

I've been getting a lot of emails and messages about what my wire frame looks like. So here you go. If you have followed or read any of my tutorials or articles I tend to let smoothing do a lot of the leg work so I have included but the wire frame not smoothed so you can see the shapes and typology and what the wire frame looks like after I smooth it out. 

And like any good artist, there are a ton of WIPs of renderings that just never made the cut. While they all had goods and bads here are some of the versions I had and some tests as well to show off lighting and material work.

Rocket..Yeah! Satellite of Love Pt. 3

So I was able to get more modeling done on this beast. The modeling is about 95% done with just a few odds and ends to fix up and take care of. I think it reads pretty well and once I get those parts out of the way, it's on to texturing and material work! Here are my current WIP shots.

Rocket..Yeah! Satellite of Love Pt. 2

Been a while since I've updated but here are a few more WIP shots of my rocket. Started adding in a bunch of detail and getting the "functioning" parts worked out. The real challenge here is to get to look detailed but simple to read. As you know looking at real rockets it can get insane will all the details you see all over the place. So its been a fun challenge!
