    Plus the fact I like drinking tea. Proper tea that is, not the tea that is stewed to death, chilled with ice cubes and defiled with heaps of teeth rotting sugar, so no not that tea.

    Oh....mmmm, I digress, these barrels and jerry cans were good practice in regard to the painting look, style etc. Then I stuck them on the tanks.

    So here is pretty much the finished design of the tank. All modeled in LightWave, then painted in 3D Coat using the Wacom Cintiq.............well you didn't expect me to paint the camouflage with a mouse did you?

    I've had to model a teapot that looked like a cupcake before now but never a tank, don't think it's particularly practical but it looks fun and has some nice detail, well done.

    Great concept tank Graham! I'm with you on the tea thing. Anytime I've visited the states, I've always had to pick up some PG Tips at the airport prior to flying. They just don't understand decent tea in the US...

    And mentioning PG Tips in conjunction with how bad tea in the US apparently is really shows how bad it must be... if PG Tips are better

    Next up: Decent coffee in the UK (or the US ).

    Back to your regular scheduled programme now...

    Cheers,
    Mike

    I'm lucky to live in a city with a hoard of Chinese & and some Japanese stores that carry decent tea. Because I agree, when I travel outside of the city... There is no tea! Bunch of barbarians.
