Found a model on Blend Swap by Chris Kuhn and decided it would be fun to texture – it was :)

Since Chris gave away this awesome model, I think it’s only fair if I give away my textured version :)

All modeling and rigging credit goes to Chris – all I did was texture and render it.

If you want to support the awesome dude that modeled this awesome model, buy his even more awesome textured version, or any of his other awesome stuff! (most of which are free, the rest are super cheap)

    I did the model for this, and I gotta say... Beautiful, man. I went for a slightly different look with my textures: (, but we were thinking along the same lines. I love what you did. Reminds me of Serenity / Firefly... Thanks for the credit, but you did at least as much work as I did.

      Yeah I checked out your textured one before starting (hence the idea for the bronze/copper type of material) and thought it really suited it.
      I must say I feel bad - like I'm robbing you of some sales, but I couldn't resist :)

      It is baked ( - haven't watched that myself, but it should show you what you need to know)

    Thanks Greg.. it's really helpful.. so my guess, you bake ao in blender internal and then render it in cycles.. ? am I right..?
