I Gave the Tardis Wood!

Don't get excited, it's just the result of me looking for something to do during a dull, wet, weekend. I decided to fully texture the tardis model I'd knocked up in Cinema 4D, using the software's own texturer 'bodypaint.' Bodypaint was used recently for some of the texture work on Spiderman 3.

After a few hours of cutting and pasting wood panel images on to the model mesh I ended up with a huge tardis woody! (really, it gave me such a clue) Below are some renders in Vue 6 and one in Cinema 4D (it's got daleks in it). Hope you like them, I do. Now I have to think of something to do with it apart from bore you lot. I may try and do some work again, I hear all the kids are doing it.

Mark Stirton has an animated version of the un-woody one on his cracking Dr Who title sequence, here. Of course all images and thingies are copyright BBC Worldwide.

It's been a fun modelling exercise and lets me get to grips with the new rendering package, Vue 6.

Apart from all the really busy film stuff both Mark and I are Dr Who fans, I think we do this sort of project by default.

Love Dr. Who...well...not love so much as really enjoy. I was so glad to hear it had been revived after the American version KILLED IT! What a bit of crap. We get verizon's version of cable TV next week so I can finally start watching the new shows. BTW, we have posted more photos of the latest shoots.
