I did a few builds for Wizkids, back in the day (2006, I believe), when Mechwarrior: Dark Age was in full swing.
One, the Carnivore tank, I blogged about back in 2011, when the original artwork by Dave White went up for sale.
My art director, Vic Bonilla, was great to work with. Wizkids wanted their approval/in-progress pics to be in rendered in a specific yellow, since their process at the time involved prototypes recast in gypsum.
This can be confusing, sometimes, and can fool sculptors and clients into thinking there's more detailing and paneling than has actually been carved/sculpted/etc.
Thus, I now try and leave it out in production/approval renders.
I don't believe my version found much favor among purists.
No worries. These things happen, and you can't win them all.
The check sure was nice, though! ;)
That's just a little trip down memory lane. Back to sculpting.
