Hi folks,

This is the first contest i'm participating in. I hope I will be able to create something unique in this short time.

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to particpate in this contest.
Good luck to all!

A few words about me:
My name is Kevin Abou Al Ward. I'm from Berlin (Germany). I've studied Game Art and Animation and Game Design at the Games Academy in Berlin. At the moment I'm working as product & hardware designer here in Berlin.

For this project I would like to put more effort into planing before creating anything in 3D. Usually, I just start by creating a plane or box and then cut things away until it looks good.
This time I will create a project plan. I plan on investing a maximum of 2 days on planning. I hope I can finish everything in time and don't have to throw content away.

I will mainly concept it on paper, so I will upload/link the photos (or scans) of it here.

And preparing for LP-Modeling and Baking.

I had the idea to make the cabin transparent, that you can see the driver seat and console. But this is a "nice to have" and will be created, if there is enough time.

  • BM- Modeling (not finished)
  • BM-Tentacle Modeling (Finished)

BM= Basemesh
