Ales Marcik has entered the Grand Space Opera 3D.

Latest Update: Texturing: dreadnought finished

the dreadnought is now complete, changed color of the glowing parts (engines, carapace holders) - makes a nice green lighting on the carapace`s surface ... textured the core, weapons ... and made some improvements to all materials - added bump map and specular map

now I need to hurry, one ship (+ maybe one small) is waiting for textures :)

c&c most welcome

these are my two basic ideas :
(4) two huge armies (two races = two different ship designs) facing each other, in the middle is a space station built on a ship wreck and two small ships approaching fast - my intention is to depict the attempt of a "last minute" reunion
(5) spaceport on a highly advanced planet living in balance with the nature (building downwards) with vast ships landing/taking off

(1),(3) playing with basic shapes for the alien ships, A - mothership, B - attack ship

(2) detto, but those shapes belong to the second race

now i would like to hear your opinions :)

new idea : impressive imperial palace built on water during celebrations of unification - ship parade, many people ...

there are few sketches of the three "alien" (in fact, both races are alien :) ) heaviest ships (excluding mothership), also their "3d" view :)

I also drew few details for the other race`s ships ... only one type, because class will be distinguishable only by armament, maybe armor

one of the few peaceful scenes, very nice to see not all people think destruction :)
concept is very clear, good idea too.

how were you planning to illustrate the reason for the ceremony?

will be watching this thread, good luck with the project ;)

still needs more details, gun turrets etc.

here`s the next front/rear series of my battleship ... I added some details, but I think I leave the next layer of details to the textures (looking forward to that ;) ), bump maps etc.

and I think I have a name for it : IMMODICUS - it`s latin, and it means in english immoderate, excessive, beyond measure.

Very nice modelling, somewhat like the ships in Homeworld...but I actully though of Red Dwarf first of all. I like the bulky theme, building aerodynmic spaceships is a quite worthless idea after all...

Will be interesting to see it with textures on!

thanx, I like the homeworld series very much, so I guess I was influenced by their ship designs after all :D

I really like the over all shape of your ship. Has a really good mechanical feel. I look forward to seeing what it looks like textured.

I tried to compare the two ships and as you can see, they are not so different ... but I wanted them to be totally (or as much as possible) different ... so I designed another alien ship

well here it is ... hope you like it :) ... this render is a material test, but it`s still not like I intended

some details of the alien ship ...

I haven`t decided yet if I want those engines flat, or more bulky (like the one in the middle).

Another detail is one of three guns on the top turret (there is another one on the bottom of the ship).

thanx -OZ-, I`m glad you like it and I hope, you`re not the only one ;) ... and I`m REALLY curious how am I going to texture that thing :D

balistic: thnx, I hoped to create something ... different

vrhead: well, les`s say, that I did my research ;) .. but seriously, I intend to give the alien ship a little tint of a bug ("living armor")

nice architecture on those ships. the green ones make me think of dragon flys( espcialy the wings ..i think) :) and the concept is great :)

finished modelling the dreadnought, and started texturing ... I`m using planar mapping with different channels and a composite material with opacity masks for the carapace and gun turrets ... any comments welcome and appreciated :)

now I need to finish the guns, engines and the mechanical core ... should be less problematic, because it has more "texturing friendly" shapes :)

also I`m going to change the concept a little (sketch coming soon), because there is only few days to go ... but I hope it will look good

Looking good, I would only increase speculars. Else is great. Hurry up and good luck!
