After a much needed break, Ive picked up where i left off on the transcription project. As it needs to be completed by the end of June, i feel as though i have a fair amount of time to finish it to a great standard. Ive started by working on the props within the scene and working out simple but effective ways of creating destruction. Tonight i have worked on the bus which will be placed within the scene, i plan on modelling the bus as a whole first, then going in and modelling the destruction of the bus afterwards. This allows me to work on my modelling skills, and also gives me some parts of geometry that i can use for rubble around the bus. The bus is pretty much complete, all that is left to finish the model will be to model the roof, wheels, and minor details.
Also i found some great videos HERE on creating destruction, hard surface modelling and texturing.
