superb! I love this kind of textures. This reminds me of Myst. this model will become one of the most beautiful work done with Truespace. The wooden planks would be better if they were thicker to give the impression of solidity. may be that the top of the chimney should be blackened by smoke. I expect to see the texture on the pipes with impatience. :)

The boiler on the back of the turtle replaces the world as it is represented in some ancient civilizations (you must surely know what I mean). Maybe the pollution makes the turtle sick. Technology tries to repair it with wheels. but the whole remains fragile. This explanation may not be yours but that's what I feel, with a little humor.

That is just awesome.

What do you plan to render it with?
If you see a zukazamme it's probably me.

The thing about finding the truth is you first have to find who's hiding it.

Flow looks good, and it is important.

Logic, mathematics, and science let you see through the grime.

Terrific stuff MadMouse, your texture work has always amazed me. The one thing I would mention, is that with all that fantastic detail going on in the texture, it has changed my perception of the model's scale.

Yes the picture on your web site is exactly what i mean. ;)
This wip is great. I am wainting for the colors of the turtle. Just a question: what is "tortoise and the H'Air"? My poor english can understand that.

Great work Mad, you've managed to get me out of Lurk mode
Is it a steampunk'd turtle?
Is it an early 1900s Delorean?
Is it a rolling fire extinguisher?
Do they use it as a smokescreen from the soot made from its chimney?
Or is it just carrying my drinks around for me?

You've once again picked up and made a great model and ran all the way with it for a fantastic model...Slow down a bit...we'll never catch up with you at this rate :lol:

what is "tortoise and the H'Air"?
There's a story called tortoise and the Hare, the hare got to cocky and just expected to beat the tortoise, he generallly messed about, took naps that kind of thing, , the tortoise just plodded along as they do and won the race.. Mad Mouse is making sure lol

awesome textures :D

Well I think this is a play on words. The H'Air (Hare) is really "Hot Air"

p.s. Weevil STOP Lurking we need your participation! ;)
