    Modeled in Sketchup, painted in Photoshop, I'd love to collab with a REAL modeller on some things ;) hope you enjoy.

    Mod edit: Added in images and download link to Acumen's finished model.

    woha, that looks fantasticly awesome !
    don't know what you need a "real" modeler for. you seem to be able to pull everything of on your own :eek:

    i'm absolutely loving this picture right here:
    http://forums.tf2maps.net/geek/gars/images/6/7/5/4/tractorpaintover.jpg

    screams tf2 all over it !
    also the rest of your portfolio is pretty impressing :)
    hope you'll be contributing much more to this community in the future ! maybe there'll be a tiny thing or two one can model over here ^^

    edit: on a serious note, i really can't understand that you don't model this on your own, since you can use sketchup to such an extent that you shouldn't have no hard time to get into another modelling application :)

    so, while starring at this picture over and over again.
    would you want people to model this nice piece or what exactly was your intention.
    cause i'd love to give it a go :)

    so, finally i could start with my try at your awesome tractor concept :)
    after a while of blocking volumes out and getting lost in some details i got kinda confused about certain parts, because you were shifting details around on your concept sheets. some parts were on the left, then right. then you just left them out in some of the angled shots.
    bottom line is, could you maybe put some minutes in this concept piece again and share some more detailled shots or higher res stuff with me ? maybe we could talk over icq/anything comparable and work through the parts i have problems realizing ?
    or maybe i shall just draw some circles over your concepts to show which parts i mean ?

    Anyways, here's the current progress so far :D

    so could you enlighten/detail some areas when i tell you which ones are unclear to me, or shall i just model it, as i imagine it to be (some tractor research tells me to) ?
    or do you have maybe higher res pictures of the sketchup models ?
    Just thought i shall be as close to the concept as possible :eek:

    k, another update :)
    i kinda managed to get everything a bit more detailled. the behind is still to be done, but i'm gonna have to dig deep into google to find something - since you did some kind of rocket boost or whatever that is on the rear end :D

    k, since ethankarnopp is somewhere unreachable i spend the last day looking at vintage tractor pics which is kinda......well boring :D
    So this is the progress so far. revisited almost every area i felt lacking and am now ready to tackle next stage, the cleaning up, since everything is rather sloppy ditched on top of each other ^^

    Hey dude, sorry I was out and a bout with my buddies who are back in town from college, sorry I didn't catch that. Looks like you got by without me, awesome job so far dude, I gotta find a way to subscribe to this thread or something so I don't miss out on any of the new updates. Let me know if there is anyway I can help you further! Looks rad!
