Capstone Project

Capstone is one the last animation classes in my degree program. For this class we each choose an individual topic that interests us and develop an idea for semester long project. I chose to pursue high-poly modeling and texturing. All projects must also include some kind of animation, but I'll talk more about that later.

While I choose to focus on modeling, my true passion is designing things. This topic allowed me to be a bit more creative, so I used it as an excuse to design two sci-fi vehicles which was a lot of fun.

I was required to model two vehicles, so rather than designing two completely ones, I decided to make a Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft that could transport an APC. My original intention was to have two versions for the plane, though, one that carried troops and a heavy-lift version. Due to time constraints, I eventually decided to drop the troop transport. Maybe I'll revisit this one later.

Here are the original concept designs for the VTOL aircraft and APC. The design sheets were a bit rushed and I wish that I'd had more time to fix some of the wonky perspective and to explore more design variations. I will eventually change parts of the design on both, but unfortunately I didn't have time too update these sheets.

Anyway, here you go.
