A Low poly X-wing based on one of the most iconic spaceships in the Starwars universe.
This is the ship I made during a Twitch Livestream.
The T-65B X-wing made by the Incom Corporation is a heavily armed starfighter designed for airspace superiority.
Each wingtip has a laser Cannon and the ship is also armed with 2 proton torpedoes.
A squadron of X-wings was able to defeat the first Deathstar by using a weak spot in the Deathstar's design.
This time during the stream, I tried a different approach.
Instead of making all the details I decided to textures the ship instead.
I wanted to try some weathering to make it looked used.
I took had the opportunity to do some greebling... small mechanical and machine parts on the ship to give it some depth and complexity.
That's actually one of the things I prefer to do. But I admit that I found a new love for texturing also 🙂
The model itself was quickly finished... texturing took most of the time to get the final result.
This model is the second time I use texturing intensively during the stream.
I learned some new tricks and am very happy with Blender being such a versatile program.
I used a compliment of different techniques I learned during the past weeks like movement constraints for the animated wings, texturing and node setups.
In general, I notice a clear improvement in my skills in the last 3 months that I started streaming.
