The Making of the Space Shuttle Discovery

Welcome to a new tutorial from SimplyLightwave. This time we bring you the making of the Space Shuttle Discovery, as NASA has decided to retire their shuttle program we thought we'd have a go at making our own. Unfortunately we didn't quite have the budget to recreate it in the garden, so we gave this to Milivoj Popovic and asked him to do it in Lightwave. Begin creating stunning photorealistic models with over 8 hours of project-based training in this new tutorial series from SimplyLightwave. Follow along with Milivoj, lead modeler at Lemonade3d, in this comprehensive project where you will learn the complete workflow to create a realistic high-polygon space shuttle in Lightwave. After completing this project, you'll have a much better understanding of the entire process to make a realistic and believable vehicle in Lightwave. Perfect for intermediate users. This tutorial was created in Lightwave 9.6 and is also suitable for users of Lightwave 10 and 11. Part 2 in this series covering texturing and scene assembly will be released next month. Happy Easter!
