Hi All,

I just thought I’d quickly put together  and share some more, but early, short-test rendering, animation clips of my most ambition project to date - the sinking of RMS Lusitania. Note:  character animation not included - yet. 

 In this case, using my low polygon, non-textured model version of the ship , so rather crude example, but well suited for fast render times  as tests.  The final work will include the completed modeled ship, representing approximately 2 years modelling work.

RMS Lusitania was sunk by a single torpedo on a beautiful sunny, Spring afternoon, 7th May, 1915, and approx.  10 miles off the south coast of Ireland.  She sank in a mere 18 minutes, with the loss of 1,198 lives, many women and children.  Lusi sits on her port side 90 metres in depth, in very poor condition.  Her sinking so quickly, and a second explosion remains very controversial to this day.  Robert Ballard book “Lusitania”, suggesting his own theory of it’s rapid sinking.

The event was staggeringly socially and politically shocking in it’s day, and was a precursor event that lead the USA declaring  war (WWI) with Germany two years later.

More advanced clips later.
