CIWS Sentry Gun

Enjoyed modeling this one, there is something about the heavy industrial construction of the Navy CWIS systems (Close-in weapon system) that made me want to design one of my own, and why have one gun when you can have four! This was modeled in SketchUp, rendered in Keyshot and painted into a scene in Photoshop.

  1. Hey Chris awesome stuff saw your post on keyshot forum, can you please tell me the spec's your running for your renders :) I have been wanting to upgrade and your work is just wow especially the ones with the guns going of

  2. Hi Hastyar, thanks for your kind words, the renders are pretty much the default settings from the basic version of Keyshot, I think I up the Samples to 18, anti aliasing to 2 or 3, DOF to 3 and choose the 1900px wide render with an alpha channel (Tiff) file. I'm planning on breaking this down more for my next project

    Stay tuned! :)
