Massey Ferguson TE20

Written by Cathal. Posted in 3D Art



This is a model I created while working on Supernatural. Built in Softimage XSI from scratch with no Blueprints, only reference images. I ported it into the CryEngine Sandbox as a staic prop. I will continue to work on it by creating proper textures.

BMW M3

Written by Cathal. Posted in 3D Art


This was a side project i took on after college last year. Modeled using Autodesk Softimage XSI and rendered using Mental Ray.

I modeled this model of the BMW M3 after following a tutorial by Digital Tutors for Softimage XSI. It could still use some work but for my first proper attempt at modeling i was satisfied.
