Nearing the End

Almost done with this picture.


Still have a little more tweaking, but I'm getting sick of working on it. =D

Minutiae

Starting to fix some details, such as the ground, the antennas and the various details.  Still working on this thing.  Don't know if I'll ever be done this picture! =D

Unnamed Freighter Continuing Work

Well, more work done on the unnamed freighter.  Almost ready to post on the storefronts.  Rendering one final turntable showing the ship in its pretty much completed state.


I've started work on a picture to showcase the freighter. =)




Getting close to finished, now. =)

Working on Textures in Blender 2.61

An idea into nodes in the new Cycles renderer in Blender 2.61.  It's a bit cumbersome at first, but I'm sure it'll get easier with time.




Needing to add some specularity maps to the hull so it doesn't look so flat.  But we're nearing the end of exterior texturing, now.  Preparing to upload to storefronts.

Unnamed Freighter Textures 2




So working on textures some more.  I was able to figure out how to fade out the textures a bit to let the geometry show through more.  Now we're getting somewhere!  I'm starting to like the direction this is going in.  Still have to add some decals and whatnot.  I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to do that, but we'll figure something out. =)

I'm not thrilled with the doors inside the hatches.  I've got to fix those up, now.  Otherwise, she's really starting to come together!

Unnamed Freighter Textures




I struggle with texturing.  It's not as easy as modeling for me, for some reason.  So far, we've got the general texture.  Still have to add the detail textures, like arrows and warnings and text.  Unfortunately, as seems to be the case with my textures, I'm not thrilled with how the model looks with the textures applied.

Hopefully it'll work.

Greeble Tutorial


Not my best tutorial, but it gives an idea on how to do greeble detailing on a spaceship or other kind of sci-fi stuff. =)

Hopefully you're all doing awesome.

Unnamed Freighter Update

Exterior is pretty much finished!  Unless I add more details...which I don't think I will.  I still need to texture it, but I'm not thrilled with the idea of doing that.

Next up: getting it ready for the Internet sales, and then working on the interior, should I still have enough creative juices! I'm really happy with how it's turned out. =)

Getting Pretty Close

Getting pretty close to completing the exterior modeling on the unnamed freighter.



Still have to add the aft hatchway and build the interior.  I'm uncertain how I'm going to do the aft hatch, to be perfectly honest.

Tons and tons.

New Spaceship Project

Hi all,

New spaceship project time!  =D







Freighter of average size.  Three stories tall, about 45 meters long.  She's meant to haul stuff.  Probably has a FTL drive, I imagine.  Maybe.  If not, she's just a shuttle from orbiting ship (like Adamant II) to surface.  But I'd like to think she can be a long distance freighter, too.  There's enough space in there to house three or four people comfortably.
