With the improvement of shaders appearing for Blender Cycles and the previous Vray renders of the “Bad News” watch I was never fully happy with. Now it has a proper looking black leather strap and a branding other than “Bad News”. When first inspired by Indian Motorcycles, I came up with the brand name of Sioux. The Sioux were a native American tribe known for their eagle feather head gear and for being great warriors. The letting in the logo is designed to look like the Sioux clothing design patterns.
In the process of designing a wristwatch based on a custom bike modification of the famous Triumph TR6R, the bike rode by Steve McQueen in The Great Escape. Below is a collage of images of the bike used for benchmarking and the two latest renders. The modeling is almost complete and about to go ahead unwrap some of the meshes, begin texturing and applying shaders.
