Starship Troopers Arachnid
A model of the famous arachnid warrior from the famously brilliant/crap film Starship Troopers by Paul Verhoeven. I built this to illustrate a talk that I gave on metanurbs modelling. Modelling, texturing and rendering done in LightWave 5.5. Texture maps painted in Photoshop 5.0 (I think...it was a long time ago)
Another view...Interestingly, this was done entirely using Planar Texture mapping – LightWave didn't support UV mapping at the time. The eagle-eyed amongst you will no doubt see the joins. I always promised myself that I'd re-visit this one day and do it properly...but no.
And here's an animation to give you a view of the whole model:

An image done to illustrate an article that I wrote about using the Mac Platform for architecture. Based on the Puente Alameda in Valencia by Santiago Calatrava. Software used: LightWave 8.0 and Photoshop 7.0
