A lot of great ideas here. Going with the space idea? I'll be watching.
  06 June 2007
Many concepts !
The space ship is the best, but you haven't wait my opinion to do your choice !
I can remember your "journey" entry with the 2 mices. I hope this one will be great too ! I'm pretty sure it will be.
Have fun Mark !

I like the start for your ship - you seem to have found a balance between sweet and cuddly on one hand and lethal force on the other. Should be interesting.
The idea of making it big opens for a lot of possibilities, there could be room for many recreation areas on the surface. A pool in the turbine?

Very cool ideas all of them but I think you're right in focusing on the spaceship!

  06 June 2007
Hey, Mark! Good to see you here again - I really enjoyed your direction in the last Challenge and am looking forward to seeing another one. Why the big rush to solidify and idea so soon? You have 4 months! The spaceship idea is fun, but considering you did umpteen ships in the last Challenge, just doing one seems.... easy? Repetitve? (Hope you don't mind me saying so - no offense intended!) Anyhow, it'll be fun to watch no matter what. Welcome back!

Thanks Michael. Yep, the plan is to head off to space again

Thank you very much! Much appreciated

Cheers Gunilla. I'm glad I might be heading towards that balance you mention. That really is what I'm aiming for. I don't want it to look like a typical warship - in fact I'm thinking of taking those gun turrets off and replacing them with satellite dishes or aerials or something. Thanks for your suggestions about the recreation area too!

Cheers Steve. I'm looking forward to seeing your work develop too, although I guess you're already pretty busy right now

Thanks Anders! Much appreciated. I think the spaceship should be a lot of fun

Hey Mike, thank you for your thoughtful and (as usual) very intelligent comments. As always, much appreciated mate! I can assure you I could not take any offense at all. I guess the main reason for jumping in so quickly with the spaceship idea is that I got excited by the thought of doing it. But that wasn't the only thing. When I did the EON spaceships they were all variations of a few very similar meshes. That's how I did them all so quickly. Rumors of large teams of volatile engineers working around the clock are totally unfounded and I have no idea how they started This new spaceship will be totally different and much more ambitious than what I did in EON. In fact I'm pretty nervous about it, but that's our secret and I'm sure no one else here would dare read a comment addressed to you so I'm sure this secret is safe. Hahah! And there is so much I haven't even begun to decide in so many areas in this, and that's definitely something I hope to get suggestions and feedback on. (hint, hint)

Well I'm sitting here having a great time - I feel like a kid playing with Lego, lumping simple shapes together in Cinema 4D to assemble a basic outline for my spaceship. I'll post some more 3D roughs some time soon

I hear you there!

Great start and very good Idea using primitives to block out the concept! When you say you
might removing the gun turrets, I think maybe you could keep at least one, but instead of
the "typical Industrial type", you could alternatively replace it with a "Huge Harpoon", maybe
not so huge either, just the right size? You never know what/whom you could stumble about
out there!
That's of course my weard imagination again!
More updates please!!

Hi Mark. I loved your Journey entry and will definitely follow this one.

Great concept and a nice start on that spaceship.

Good luck with the challenge.
  06 June 2007
Mathias, you're brilliant! I love that idea of the harpoon. It's perfect for the kind of technology I'm wanting to portray. I could have it rubber-band-powered or something like that. Thank you buddy.

Hey Torsten, you're back again too! That's great news. Thanks for your kind words mate.

Hey thank you! Much appreciated

Thanks mate! But I think I've got a busy few months going from ideas to final art. Yikes! But it should be fun

Cheers Bobby. I appreciate your encouragement

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: lumping shapes together

I'm still lumping primitives together to get a basic spaceship shape. I'm still not happy with how this is looking but at least I'm happy with where it's heading.

What I'm aiming for is for a first glance to suggest a sophisticated spaceship, and then you see all the low-tech stuff cobbled together. I'll probably put TV aerials and satellite dishes and stuff like that on some of the flat surfaces. I want it to be pretty rich in detail.
