Oh, cool start, Sacha!

I don't know anything about the implied physics of wormholes, but based purely on visuals, I'd say the red parts look too opaque.

The scale of your planned stuff here will certainly make it the perfect backdrop for a massive jellyfish space opera Hanging around for your next update!


Be indiscreet - do it continuously.

Great to see more sascha........You have a vast canvas set up,and the organic foreground creations will look great in front of it..........glad to see progres,and you have a wonderful plan,very in-depth and almost a universe in scale.......I'll be looking for more,until then all the best Sascha...............

Overall looks amazing. Only thing is it looks little flat, I mean try adding some layers of clouds or
do some lighting in such way so that your galaxy looks huge and deep.
Looks cool

@JamesMK: It's a pity that wormholes/foldpoints are really seldom to look at...;-))) thanx, mate, for your suggestion with the opaque thing - I've done this background as a testplatform for the coming 3Ds...maybe if it looks better,I will make them more transparent. The actual stage is only for previsualisation and meant as a help for my final composition. ääähhh I'm not really sure about this scene.... It's a little bit boring...

@Virtuoso: Thanx a lot, friend, for your continual support

@madshooter: Thank u very much for your crit, dude:-)My best friend told me the same as he looked at the pic... I will try to give it more depth, when I put some 3Ds in it...

@KOryH, mmoir, DigiLusionist: Thank u very much

Peace to all :-)))

Wow just found this thread... Great sketches The wormhole looks already fantastic.
That will be cool to see the "bioship" in 3d

really cool idea and a fantastic wormhole .. just for curiosity (since I'm modelling my own black hole stuff), how do you render the lightnings? Are they 3d with some particles effects (as for the wormhole) or have they've been added in a 2D program? Thanks for the help and looking forward to see more images in your thread, really cool project ..

Modeling: Car'lumen Destroyer

...first try to model some Car'lumen stuff...äämmm sorry, mates, for posting always late. But I've only the weekend to do some stuff for....
The parts of the model were first made in 3DSMax (boxmodelling) and refined in ZBrush, then reimported to merge them together. I used displacement mapping.

Holy displacement mapping Batman..............


Very organic,very smooth,very interesting........Knowing your level of talent and seeing this concept come up is wonderful......So Z-brush with Max box modeling ..........Nice to see you back in action Sascha......Yopu have to steal more time during the week somehow,I want to see more of this more often.........All the best to you Sascha....

great stuff Sascha! exactly like in concept..

model looks very impressive.. i think you need to improve the wormhole.. it doesn't look believable..

your going excellent.. keep it up!

Old 11 November 2004   #45
wow, that's incredible!
nice update, you've got that organic feel nailed down. This will look awesome when it's textured

waiting for more
