Socoder -> Art and Sound -> Afro's 3D Models

Yeay!
Today, after... my first week on school (or is it my second?) I got a flash of inspiration and decided to drop by school from the gym and apply the knowledge we'd learned so far to my first self-designed object.
The result? A semi-finished drumkit! I might finish it when I get home, if I can be bothered.






I don't quite know how many polies there are, but the number should be ridiculously low, because it's all modelled based on primitives, and I didn't bother to research exactly how the snaredrum stand looked.

If you wanna use this in your game or whatever (I'll post back here if I finish it), the max file can be found here.

Also, as you might be able to tell: You're gonna have to design the textures yourself, cos we haven't learned about that. I tried using a ultimate unwrap modifier on the bassdrums, but I couldn't get the texture to fit.

Needs more Cowbell

Will you be continuing with little guitars, keyboard and other related instruments?

Well, I'm not sure I would know how to do a guitar, but I could always do a 60's style keyboard!

Edit: Haha, for some reason the background's become transparent, so when you drag the image around, it looks like you're dragging the drumkit!

Max renders with alpha channels so the background will always be transparent if possible (unless you tell it not to)

A guitar would be surprisingly easy, you just need to know how to do it, although experience may be required to get it looking any good

Acoustic guitar would be a fairly straight-forwards Loft but electric would probably be best with face extrusions,...

Tomtoms!
I was going to add a cymbal too, but that's too much for tonight.
*wipes sweat off forehead*
If anyone makes textures for this, could they pass it along to me, please?

Edit: w00tsocks! The filesize has grown from 400-something kb to 1,5 megs since last time! :o Better check number of polies before using in-game.

I'd hit that.


In other words, very nice. Grand piano next.

Added a cymbal/hihat!
Allthough it's not easy to see, the hi cymbal has got it's hat on! I also added a padding at the top of the cymbalstand.
Grand piano? Hm...¨

Edit: Jay, I have an idea for the next WW!

'Afr0 wants a game for his musical instruments! But he's not very good at making 3D games. Make a game that includes his instruments in some way or another. Doesn't have to be interactive, as long as his models are included in the game'.

Grand piano!
Doesn't look quite right, as I couldn't quite get the bump in the side... but I'm still fairly pleased with the result.
Any more ideas?

How about a Pikasso guitar?


(Yeah, it's real!)

Seriously though, nice work Certainly better than my modelling "skills". How about a trumpet/tromboon/saxophone/etc?

Hmm... that Pikasso guitar looks about as hard to model as it must be to play. Hmmhmm...

I bit oddly shaped, but a good piano nonetheless.

That guitar is to be played while having a seizure.

very nice, Afr0

Now, how about some brass?

Hmm... I spent about... a little over an hour on this, I think.
I'm sorry to say I think blanko's gonna be disappointed, because I honestly couldn't get the tubing right, so I had to improvise.
Might not look as good as your real-life one blanko, but it might be suitable for a game!

Looks like a trumpet to me. You got the main bit of tubing, which is good enough. Plus, extra point for the little finger ring thing.

Not bad at all...

Thank you!
I realized I had to make the tube for the mouthpiece longer, so I just did.

Edit: This model has also been 'rigged' for animation btw. The three buttons to play with aren't part of the rest of the Trumpet object, so they can be moved separately.

This one's slightly more high-poly.

Spaceship inspired by Spore! Notice the piping underneath, too.
May not look 'perfect', but Jay said you needed a variation of models for my modelworkshop, and so that's what I will be making.

Edit: If you have any special requests, make them here. Just don't ask me to make any characters... yet. Static objects only please!

The giant, cartoony cockpit is nice; perfect for big-headed aliens.

Also, piano number two looks much better.

Although the keys are a bit off -- there shouldn't be keys between B-C and E-F But it does look better than the first one, as Blanko said.
