Old projects, restarted – environmental and vehicular

Right, I was planning on doing this on Sunday night but it didn’t happen, and yesterday’s hot weather made my room a furnace to work in – so much so that a decent fan needs to be purchased!!

Firstly, the submarine pen images – I will need to work on the lighting, it is not my strong point so shall take quite a bit of fiddling with the settings before I am happy. It isn’t finished, but I believe I have the size right along with most of the placement.
The Desert Patrol Vehicle is only a few hours old, actually. I don’t supposed it shall be too hard – most of the time will be spent on getting the engine and drive parts looking good.
As for the Land Rover, I started that when I was at college and using 3ds Max. I found it recently and imported it to Maya. Unfortunately, it imported triangulated. I will have to look up the proper method of importing in quads. I tried the quadrangulate option on the model, but it was mostly useless. I know I was worried about how to go about modelling the leaf springs at the time, either model them curved, in a static position, or model them flat and have some kind of rig to bend them for whatever use I required. I shall be leaning toward the latter option I think now!
