Tom Clancy's Hawx
For this game commercial I made the two jet fighters that are dogfighting. While I usually create characters at Blur, occasionally I get to do some vehicle and prop modeling.
This was a smaller project for Blur and didn't get a ton of attention but it was a real joy for me because I love airplanes. When I was young my father would buy me plastic model airplane kits. I have many fond memories of the hours assembling and painting those models.
The game company provided some game models to us. I built high resolution models based starting from those low poly real time meshes. I also re-textured them with higher resolution maps.
I've polished and re-rendered these vehicles in VRay. Originally they were built in 3ds max and rendered with Mental Ray. This project was originally done in the summer of 2008.
