With all this talk lately of Houdini's modeling capabilities, Ive been inspired to do some straight forward modeling in H10. So I got a few basic sketches of a scene, but nothing 100% or in colour yet. Perhaps once I do I will post them.
Basically it's a gloomy dark night in 1888 Whitechapel. A Daimler Motor Carriage parked under a street light (gas-lamp) on a cobbled street. A few buildings in the background, perhaps Jack The Ripper lingering in the background by a brothel.
Anyways I made a start into the Daimler model which will be the focal point of the scene. Im about 2 and a half hours into the model so far….
I was originally thinking of this being a static scene. However once the modeling is completed, I shall be seperating the carriage into several elements for unwrapping/texturing, so rigging would'nt really be a difficult thing to implent….
…actually I might just do that, turn it into a small animation.
your right probbins, the leaf springs are too chunky. Also I have put the drive gear on the rear axel, when it is actually sat on a seperate input shaft to the back of the rear wheels (found some better references).
