This may sound a little absurd, but, as a pure programmer, I have a real panic to graphics because I know modelling requires a talent I think I do not really have.
Anyway, there is no other option, I have to finish the game, so, this weekend I started to create the models needed to complete the first level using Blender and Gimp.
The first model I tried to create was the game tank. After a very frustating first attempt, I throwed it out and restarted from scratch.
This is my current tank, surely not the best tank model around, but good enough for the time being.

Other captures and their original versions:
|The new red fighter texture and two new buildings|
|Another new building|
|More buildings :)|
|The yellow fighter texture|
|The new cannon boats, i love the original ones.|
Creating these models has been very rewarding. Obviously there is a lot of work to do, but now I think I can finish at least the first level on my own, and that's very good news!
