Really Big Dozer by steve-burg Really Big Dozer by steve-burg
This is another environmental detail from "Tiberium". It is a very large bulldozer found underneath a huge platform on top of which rests a future city. The bulldozer would have been used to clear hazardous debris away from the large support columns seen in the background.

To design this vehicle, I researched the dimensions of the largest bulldozer currently in existence. I then doubled those measurements - because I wanted this bulldozer to be a real monstrosity!

I modeled the bulldozer in 3D and placed it into a scene with the columns to show the appropriate scale.

One of the artists on the project - Chris Miller - did a very nice paint-over of this design, but here I'm showing just the base 3D render.

There are some figures on the ground, but they're quite dark so you'll have to look closely to see them :)

As soon as I saw the title, I had to take a closer look. As a fan of industrial machinery and heavy equipment, this kind of stuff always catches my eye.

I like it. Since it has an elevated drive sprocket, I assume you modeled this machine after the Caterpillar D11R Carry-Dozer? Cool :)

It would be hard to park this vehicle. But actually - you could clear your own spot :lol: !

A nuclear powered bulldozer? yikes!! i suppose parts are impossible to find ...if you ignore the people it almost looks like a normal sized bulldozer, until you realize the human scale details are all way too small :D

Gasoline isn't made anymore, so nuclear fuel cell is ideal for this monstrosity :D!

There is the cab up top - but it's a little hard to see. I like those giant dump trucks you see in large mining operations, and I tried to get a similar scale...

Well then mission accomplished, this definitely looks like a monster. The cab is part of what i was talking about, it seems so tiny up on top :D it's just a bit interesting how they share a lot of their design with smaller bulldozers, tractors, etc. Some designs just work well for what their intended use no matter the size

That's what I found when researching real bulldozers - they just scale things up - but then you notice "oh, the chair is tiny!" :D

I think you're right! It's kind of like the "Where's Waldo?" books :lol:!

This was done when we were in "crunch mode" - it shows! No fine tuning on the lighting at that point. I didn't even see the guy there until you pointed him out :D!
