Platform: 3DS Max
This student emailed me during the summer break. He started modeling the Iron Man helmet, and needed some guidance. We worked telepresently during the summer, and he continued the project during the academic year.
The black and white image was rendered with 3DS Max’s Ink-n-Paint tools. It’s a nice technique for producing technical renderings that bring out the detail in the model. The materials used in the color rendering come from 3DS Max’s default material library. He used a particle system to create the exhaust that streams from the boosters.
