KV-2 (World War 2 Tank)
The KV-2, 152mm gun, The derpiest of derp tanks.
A 3d model I started on aiming for a cartoony and stylized look (with exagerated sizes for different elements of the tank), but ended up with something more similar to the real thing.
More or less everything is hand painted, to give that “authentic” soviet tank production feel.
I spent only about 4 hours modelling the thing, and about 15 hours unwrapping it to my liking, and about 10 hours texturing the thing. I tried relying on the automatic unwrap, but that gave me very strange polygon sizes, so I had to manually unwrap the whole damn thing.
Luckily I find unwrapping rather calming and relaxing so it wasnt much of an issue. I did use the automatic unwrap on the road-wheels of the tank, I couldnt be bothered with actually manually doing those.
The tracks are very simple. I didnt want to make each tracklink as individual links, so I went with an increadibly simple approach. I believe this is how ‘World of Tanks’ does its old style tracks.
