HieSpike- Yeah I'm sketching various body ideas. I also did a pencil
sketch of an opera singer, overweight, in a space costume...hmm
can't be anything but an entirely original dude, so I guess doing a
cartoon of Luciano Pavarotti howling bigtime in space boots and
blaster at his belt, while very funny, will have to be changed to
some imaginary alien wanna be! I plan to put that original concept
in for laughs though.

Cool entry...

I like specially the second POV, the one right down in the city. Way more dramatic.


May Your Renders Be Short.

I'm using Lightwave too, HieSpike. I did the Photoshop sketch at a coffee
shop on my laptop, moving my dongle from my Dell 3ghz desktop at home.
Now it's back on my laptop and off to work for an hour or more in a
coffee shop. I use an Intuos tablet, the cool translucent black special
edition. I plan to work on the spaceship body. Been trying to do edging
grooves using a wedge I made to Boolean subtract the gouge lines on the
ship wings but it didn't work too well so i'll try knifing new polygons and
pulling them up or down. Is that what you do?

Thanks Doublecrash. As I mentioned in your entry I really got a kick
out of your concept! Made me really laugh, first in this contest, Because
it is so original! I'll be keeping an eye on it!

Modeling: spaceship modeling

Here's a body idea i've got. I may
change it. It needs details yet.

Modeling: Red Ship

Worked some more on the attacking alien
ship. I also started working on the buildings and I'll probably do more of that next. Then I gotta start on the defending cruiser.

Good work so far, but try to give the ship more datail and for now concentrate on modeling not texturing. I think you will get better results!

Keep on!
What's the rush, if the destiny is death?

high- Yes I plan to give this ship more detail and rework the nose
because I feel it's too skinny. But I want to get the buildings
fermenting in my head too, so I can decide on the look and feel.
So i've been messing with that. I guess I can mix the building
styles, like here in San Francisco you have old victorians to strange
metal buildings to a pyramid skyscraper, so i'll do something like that,
so look out...

great idea work on the ships and especialy textures since your viewing the ships so close
  11 November 2004

I seem to be working all over the place right now. I did an insignia
texture for the red fighter, worked more on the buildings, and started
the big defender ship on the left, made a nozzle for it. I'm gonna make
this ship the HUGE one. Maybe i'll work out a collage of these elements
To see if it helps. Maybe i'll post that in a couple days. This challenge
is a blast.

Modeling: The Opera Singer

OK here's my start on the Opera Singer
for the foreground. Hope you like it so
far.He's going to be really houling out
a Space Opera. Any comments?

  11 November 2004
hi Brian, it's hard to comment right now. I'd like to wait till you post some more of that character. Ship looks fine. keep going

Modeling: Grand Space Opera Singer WIP

Here is the Space Opera Singer, without his head. Did it get blasted off? No, that's still on the drawing board. He'll also have stylish armor,
heck I might even give him medals and a space gun. What do you think so far?
Any crits welcome.
