Color Comps for the plane design.

Will reveal the entire synopsis at the final render submission. It will, however, start to become obvious what I will be trying to convey.

Thanks Nuy! :)

07 July 2007, 03:52 PM
nice little space ships! I like the one witht the face :)

07 July 2007, 04:53 PM
Hey, thanks Kei-Acedera! Im glad you like em. The last one i thought I would go very kiddy on, hence the face. I just sold my tablet so trying to do a decent job on these is hard. More concepts on the way.

A glimpse of what I'm going for.

07 July 2007, 02:50 AM (

Starting to layout my model.

Hey Scott, nice concept! and models! :thumbsup: Good Luck !!:) and looking for more updates

10 October 2007, 12:59 AM (

Started to go back in and refine the model.

10 October 2007, 02:20 AM (

Another update for the main model.

10 October 2007, 03:06 PM (

Finished the preliminary modeling of the plane. Base color laid down.

10 October 2007, 07:51 PM (

Trying out some fur and hair sampling.

10 October 2007, 08:29 PM (

Restyled the hair so that it fit more with the initial concept sketch.

Hey thanks brainwave, its loosely based on my grandfather and his exploits as a pilot. This is sort of an homage to him.

More updates on the way, wont be too much texturing until my cintiq gets here. :)

10 October 2007, 01:27 AM (

Trying to get a feel for the look of the color.

10 October 2007, 01:29 AM (

Starting to work out the emotion Im trying to convey for the pilot.

10 October 2007, 01:42 AM (

Still trying to nail down the color palette. Im going out this weekend to get some reference photos. Should help a lot. I dont think my cintiq is going to make it in time.

10 October 2007, 10:55 PM (

Reworked the skin shader to better represent the look im going for. Also redid the topology of the model to better deform for the blendshaping. Redid the hair as well.

10 October 2007, 04:43 PM
Two things....

1. After reworking the model for better deformation I ended up with a look that I didnt quite like so I have gone back to the original to rework the topology only and not the form.

2. I am not going to be able to finish this in time for the submission deadline, because I will not receive my Cintiq in time to do texturing. I will how ever submit the final image in finished 3D works forum one it is completed.

Thanks to everyone who showed support and I look forward to hearing critiques in the finished forum.

Good Luck to everyone else in the competition!
