About Diesel Locomotive
Diesel Locomotive was created for 3D World Magazine, a magazine catering to the interests of 3D computer graphics artists. I was commissioned to develop a step-by-step tutorial for the design of diesel locomotive very similar to one I had previously created for a client. The attached images show a finished render of the locomotive, along with several intermediary images of the model coming together inside TrueSpace.

Though the 3D World tutorial that this was developed for emphasized modelling, I also spent a great deal of time working on texture maps for this image. This was because the article I was writing was intended to be a two page spread, as well as one of four featured tutorials in that particular issue of the magazine. My editor wanted a good high resolution image to accompany the article. I worked hard to sell the model with a realistic rusty and "used" look.
