A school project I just finished. The goal was the recreate the Marauder unit from Starcraft II in some high poly goodness. The entire model is done with basic sub-d modelling in 3Ds Max and did a quick material render in V-Ray. All scratches and decals are nearly purely photoshop. Final image is in 5000x5500 pixels.

Well I guess it could work...Can see any reason for hiding the head and the robot awkward look..Love the materials and modeling...but I cant agree on proportion..just my person opinion.Good Job Overall!

You have an error in your smoothing groups inside the pipes, near the pelvis.
Rod Beasley on Thu, 07 July 2011 10:27am
Amazing detail and a well presented render.

@Pariah maybe he just had to clean is suit? For General Warfield?

I'm also a big fan of Starcraft II and this is an absolutely great work! very good job!
Ron on Thu, 07 July 2011 6:41am
Very Coool!!!!!! But he looks like a Firebat...not a Marauder
Pariah on Wed, 06 July 2011 2:57pm
Love this! I'm a massive fan of Starcraft II. The only thing that I would suggest is maybe dirty him up a bit. He's got the battle scars on his armor, but he looks too clean. Other than that, amazing job!
