Talking the answer of 'what it is?'

Thanks for all the comments, here is the answer of you guys question 'what it is?'

to be honest, i don't really know as well..... hehhehe, disappointing answer, isn't it?

when i do concept design, there are different ways to do it.
- sometimes i work quite logically, step by step, it happens more often in a real company project, especially with a very strict brief.
- But sometimes i would go crazy, try to go out of the box. not even need to think about what it is, what am i going to draw. just do it

because i have recently moved onto digital painting, this drawing was supposed to be just for practice, just trying to get used to drawing with wacom tablet, this 'spaceship' is the result; i didn't even think about what the final result was gonna be.

Cool Confusing...

I like your style, but find the drawing a little confusing. It's hard to see the shape of the ship and see what is nearest to the "camera" and what is further away...

Lights and shadows give the ship form but the shape of the ship is so unconventional it propably needs more drawings from different directions.

Talking confusion

Garde, I do agree with you. The drawing is a bit confusing. Maybe this is a final result from a 'unlogical' thinking design. maybe i should do a quick ploygon model in Maya, shouldn't I?.....

the funny thing is, different people saw it in different shape. I've been told it looks like a, turtle, gun, sword, snake head..... heheh

hmmm, yes, if you look at the engine pod and compare that to the body, the perspective seems skewed off...

cool rendering, i like it

3D test

My friend 'orange_3D' made a rough ploygon model in Maya, he try to test if this design does works in 3D? what do you guys think?
Old 08 August 2004   #12
I had the same idea...
let's see what comes up with it; i'll show you my modelling once done.

Great concept!
All those who believe in psychokinesis, raise my right hand.

here's the first geometry, i miss some informations as you have sketch it only from the side so i did what i thought was appropriate, but if you have some rough sketch from the top view or else that would be cool.

what do you think about it?

thanks for your 3D model

Hi Nataz,

WOW, I'm so surprised that you have started building up a 3D model of my concept. Thank you so much. Which programe did you use?

From the 3D model you provided. I realize how crap is my drawing. And I finally understand why the people think it looks like a gun. mmmmmmm......... :P

I'll do some more sketches from other angles, and will post them in here later on. Sorry for the bad drawing..... :P

Thanks nataz again
Old 08 August 2004   #15 all makes more sense now that you have some 3D views

looking good!
