Feng Tank Enhanced by dangeruss Feng Tank Enhanced by dangeruss
A rework of the 3DS Max model [link] I created from a tank design by Feng Zhu. [link] I decided it was too narrow in width and lacked enough weaponry, so I widened it and added a Vulcan cannon to the roof, plus a ton more detail.

Many people (myself included) liked the original sketch quality of the Zhu artwork, so I used a cell shader plug-in and lots of photoshopping to create a similar look.

For higher res desktops, use this image "centered" and set you Desktop color to RGB 214,214,214. Looks great with the ChosenOS skins of recent release.

Beautiful work, great !

I love the soft rendered look of this. Did you achieve it in your renderer, or afterward in Photoshop?
dangeruss Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
It was done mostly in post processing. I rendered a grey scale version in 3D, then placed it under a grey layer on Photoshop to soften the shades. Then the line art was done over the top of those layers.

this is stellar. after 7 years this design still holds up, and although i know it was inspired by another artist. your rendering is top notch. your talent is stunning good sir :)

There are some major flaws:
Machinegun in front can only be moved horizontaly. There is no way anyone can operate that (well, it can be remotly controlled) And there is no visor for driver (or I can't see any)

Truly amaizing!

It's really nicely done, but perhaps almost a bit cluttered for a military machine.
Unless my memory fails me, that C-shaped thing hanging on the front is used to tension tracks, wouldn't be used on an armoured car...
But overall, really nice

so much detail. love it!

But it isn't tank, i think so )
infinityspiral Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Great line work and variety. I like the technical drawing style- using 3D makes it incredibly precise which makes it look even better. :)

Thats some nasty details man) good job:) :popcorn:
NHT123 Featured By Owner May 20, 2006
highly detailed, loooks very good against infantry, or for use of anti air, but not very good against another tank. Sweet creation:D +fav

I personally think that you could totally perfection it with tiny tips of red or lines.
Grey and red in a tech way. Maybe even red army writing south left or right.
PreppyPunkClub Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2005
:) Cool Drawing...!!!
AWaqas Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2005
Im another Feng Zhu's fan, and thats a fine retouch. I really hope to see a more realistic rendering, via Brazil renderer or others.. Good job man..

oh yeah i remember seeing this on his site. that guy is so damn good at drawing! he did it with markers and pens, no pencils at all!!!!
asylumseaker Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2005
There are these really expensive markers which are perfect for this stuff, I think it's what the artist must have used. They get a really smooth even tone that is alot harder to get with a pencil. I wish I had some. Unfortunatley, when I say expensive I mean EXPENSIVE.
Chrono1209 Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2005
yeah i know i have some too, they are called prisma color markers and they are 3.75 each.
asylumseaker Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2005
I've only seen a set of like 10 of them for 130 dollars. We might be talking about different things, the ones I am talking about are only in grey.
Chrono1209 Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2005
oh yeah we are probably talking about differant things probably. but prisma colors are like what i see most comic artists using these days
