Fokker Buzzes Vermilion-WIP by DapperMan Fokker Buzzes Vermilion-WIP by DapperMan
This is now a dead project (well, it's dead-ish. It was a Poser Pro 2010 issue and opens in later/earlier versions). I had meant to make a picture of Roy Fokker buzzing Hikaru's Vermilion Squadron with a detailed background, but the Poser file will no longer open, and this pic was the last one I was able to render. Maybe because the un-optimized Valkyries combined have an insane number of material zones.

Although I made these main characters' Valkyrie paint schemes long ago for fun, I had never really intended to depict canon Macross pilots themselves.

I should note that I borrowed the VF-1S head from the Battroid by spanki and mechmaster, www.sharecg.com/v/49933/browse… because I haven't built that head yet.

Rendered in Poser Pro 2010 (unfortunately), Modeled in 3ds max.

Brings back memories...
Sitting in front of the PS2 with my friend shooting missiles at each other for 10 minutes, then running around in mech mode destroying buildings. Good times :)

I'll bet those were good times, and I'm jealous that you got to play the Macross game on PS2. It looked like it was fun. :)

They made quite a few copies. You can still find it at gamestop.

Oh, you must mean the first Robotech game (which is pretty fun). I meant the import Macross game for PS2. But if you did mean that the SDF Macross Japanese game is available at gamestop, then I'm grabbing it!

Thanks! But now that I can open the file again, it might get exported to another app and finished someday.

I want to thank u for your support and give you welcome ( so many of your art work)as well, I was lock out of my account for some reason I would not receive from my hotmail.com I had a back up account I took a while. I had over 1000 image I want to keep up with. Also here in NYC the dept of education with is controlled by the major of NY Bloomberg, his way of thing is firing staff to solve to his problems. But really is making a lot of mistake (he made few good ideas to the NYC city as well) and see himself as leader but is not a man of the people. He see money and how to make a profit this is something that I told eve not buy votes to continue (which he did recently) . It the last stand for him to do what he want without regard to the small people and seem to be buying his way to get thing done (his things and money). Which we are holding on more like a war of a siege within our government. Even the president said stop attacking the teachers and we hope we can last a year and half.

Is that the project with Toby McGuire? I've heard bits and pieces. Bet they'd end up altering the design of the Valkyries if they ever made it. And that would be disappointing.

Or hopefully they'll keep the design with a few minor cosmetic changes like the BSG Vipers. If it ain't broke...

Yes, Hopefully. The new "older" Vipers were sweet. I could handle minor changes of that fashion to the Valkyries.

Valkyries never looked so good! Excellent job!

You could always Photoshop in a background to complete the scene. Since they're rendered on a solid backdrop, they wouldn't be too hard to isolate.

Thanks for the compliment!

I considered Photoshop. But I've since been able to open the file in a previous version of Poser and might revisit this in the future.

Yeah, this was just a one-shot. I made the Vermilion and Skull textures long ago, but since then I've made my own custom squads and characters.

Pretty spot on rendering and design. A shame the file got corrupted. That's happened to me a few times with Flash as well.

Nice work.
