Tintin rocket by element05 Tintin rocket by element05
Just a subdued render of the rocket from Tintin's Explorer's On The Moon adventure. The model was built using a scan of the full-page blueprint in the first book of the adventure (for people who care about accuracy ;)). Rendered using VRay Free ([link]) in 3DSMax 5.0.

Absolutely love this image!

I'm currently a freshman at Purdue University and working on a English project. This project consists of writing a variety of pastiches and having an image to accompany each one - with the catch that three of our images must be by artists other than ourselves.

I was wondering if it would be possible to make use of your image in this project? I'd really love to feature this image.

I also grew up reading tin tin, and this rocket is beautiful. I came across it because I'm looking for inspiration for a simple flash project of a rocket launch and this is definitely the type of rocket I wanted to model mine after (probably because Tin Tin is still in the back of my head).

I grew up reading Tin-Tin and that's a fine tribute to that particular book. Kinda odd that it resembled a V2

I know, I've thought about rendering a larger version (my work PC's default resolution is higher than 1024x768)... hmm...

Amazing!!! More favs than people commenting :) Keep it up. Got to learn to do stuff like that, my stuff is pretty shite.

Oh yeah I think it deserves a fav.

Heheh, ahh well, favs are nice too ;)

In honesty, this wasn't terribly difficult. The rocket is just some simple splines, lathed through 360 degrees, and a sphere or three. The lighting is just the ever-popular Beach Probe HDRI image. The hardest part was definitly picking a nice camera angle, and setting up the red and white tile texture (which is procedural, not an image map).

Yup! Go to Paul Debevec's light probe gallery, [link] and look for "Funston Beach at Sunset" (more than half way down). You may need to follow a tut or two to get that image into a format to use with your renderer.
