A VF-1 Valkyrie from Macross/Robotech that I was tasked with modelling for a CGI Modelling course at University in 2012. The model contains around 13600 tris which falls short of the allocated 15000 tris. Given more time I would have fleshed out the cockpit section a lot more and improved the under section of the body of the craft.
This was my first time modelling an aircraft based on concept art, I’ve learned a lot since modelling this and if I had my time on it over again, I can think of many things I’d have done differently.
This VF-1 Valkyrie was modelled in Maya 2011, and textured in Photoshop CS5.
