The Kawasaki Dream
- Project Description:
Concept by: Kawasaki
Modelling,Texturing,Lighting by: Deborah Ling
This is the dream - Kawasaki Ninja H2R bike.
I imagine this bike to be used before in races (by me in my dreams haha) but well maintained.
New to Maya and with a tight school deadline, it was a very ambitious project and I was rather excited when I chose to model this. At first, I didn’t understand topology and I struggled alot. I couldn’t even model a screw properly at first! Modelling the first few pieces in the bike was the hardest and many times I wondered if I would be able to do it. However, as I consistently put in effort everyday to learn more and just kept modelling, bit by bit it started coming together. I received alot of support from my lecturers, classmates, seniors and juniors as well. Thank God I could finish it in time. No regrets that I had pushed my boundaries and learnt so much through the process!
It is modelled in Maya, textured in Substance and rendered in Arnold. Before modelling, I gathered alot of references and did research on the background of the bike. I also thought of the story of the bike. This early research helped me alot during the later production process. I chose to render it in Arnold as I wanted a more realistic look.
