Someone over at blenderartists.org suggested on my previous project that I “should rock some Gradius on the monitor”. Little did he know that I’m a very literal minded person…
So here it is. Vic Viper from Gradius saga literally breaking the fourth wall on a Philips MSX:
I’m particularly happy with the way the MSX textures hold up so close to the camera. I knew the extra work on those models and textures would pay off in the future. And here are some of the extra assets I modeled for this project:
- Vic Viper with battle damage (not a specific Viper model but a combination of features from different versions):
- Eighties style joystick closely based on Quickshot 2 model:
Seeing how easily influenced I can be, I hope I wont get many more suggestions like this one. 😀 Everything was modeled with Blender 2.6x and rendered with Cycles.
