The Battle

This was my final graduation demo from the School of Communication Arts. It began as a storyboard idea of a one on one tank engagement in World War II between a US Sherman tank and a German Panther tank. Through time constraints and fluid ideas, it evolved into what you see here. The Sherman tank was modeled using Alias Maya 4. The texture mapping was referenced from various tech drawings and pictures. The P-51 aircraft were modeled using my own creative interpretation of what a P-51D would look like. I did use the skinning and mapping to reflect actual aircraft paint schemes. Some of the skills I learned on the fly were the movement of the tank tread and the particle smoke and explosions seen in the reel. These were self taught and within the confines of the time limit due to the instructor not knowing how to give me the proper technique. My other pride and joy was the USMC AH-1W Super Cobra helicopter. This was modeled only using photographs and the skinning was my own design take on it. The software used was Alias Maya, Adobe Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere, and SoundForge.
