It's been a while since I've used Google SketchUp. I learned so much about the program recently from Kemp Remillard and Sam Brown at the Massive Black workshop, and I was super inspired to give it another go, but it would be a few months later after the knowledge sunk in that I'd actually do something with it. It's so good at helping to block out hard surface stuff, so I figured I'd start off with some guns and vehicles.
I want to find the right balance of 3d and 2d, so with this one I wanted to see how far I could push the actual model before switching to Photoshop.
Here's the shot I painted over.
...and some more angles of the model
Next will be a vehicle that spent more time getting painted...
