Today’s Sketchup practice session was to make a Classics Illustrated Martian tripod. It’s not quite right, especially the tentacles, which are as yet a skill too far. But I exported this image, then loaded it into Paint to crop, and then I realized that it was cool as it was. Certainly there was inspiration in the original! As mentioned in the Amazon review, “The artwork by Lou Cameron is simply superb.”
I did a search in the Google 3D Warehouse and couldn’t find a War of the Worlds tripod quite like this. Perhaps, with a little touching up, I should upload this. Well, when and if I ever figure out how to do the tentacles.
