Well, ladies and gentlemen, I sat down last night to try a couple of things–working out how the Caldera Creative Works logo would look Tron-ified for the movie and to build the light jet I’m going to get to ride in the final film. I wanted to take the light jets from the movie
and kind of marry them with old-school WWII dogfighters, like the Spitfire, in order to give them a kind of older feel.
There’s no doubt that the current light jet pulls inspiration from modern jetfighters. I particularly get an F35 vibe from them–compact little angular homeboys that rock everybody’s socks. So it’s only fitting that our “prototype” light jets pull elements from the classics of aviation history. Anyways, here’s a quick render of what the thing looks like thus far. It’s missing a couple of things and is untextured, but it gives you a nice idea of how it’ll look in the flick. I think it feels heavier than the ones in Legacy, which is what I was aiming for.
I decided to throw some colour on that bad boy just to see what it’d look like. It looks like schiggity schwa.
