Starting to come together

Created several quick sketch up of potential models. Most include some sort of mechanical legs that support a steam train-like vehicle. I'm leaning towards either number one or number five. I have also been looking up lots of reference photos especially real steam functioning vehicles such as trains, tanks, and cranes. I also have to look up a tutorial on importing and making a vehicle work in the Unreal Engine.
Below is a3D mock up of sketch one to compare to sketch five which I will be mocking up shortly.

Pitched my projects and it looks like I'm going to do the vehicle/mech but the critique from the class was that that it was to generic of an idea. I've been thinking of making a vehicle based off of natural materials like wood and stone instead of metal and steel to make a more unique piece.

I also still plan on working on the group project because I have models already done for it.

In the beginning...

First day of class and have been brain storming some ideas for a project this quarter. They are:
  • model rig and animate a vehicle then import it into the Unreal Engine
  • group environment for a the Unearthly competition
  • individual environment brought into the Unreal Engine and then turned into a level

Right now it looks like I'm leaning towards the vehicle project and working on the group environment on the side.
