January Art Challenge - Klaus
 
Well given the subject and the talent already deployed I don't think I've got a tribble's chance on Qo'noS of winning this month, but it's time for the old Academy try. [My main advantage would be that the JJverse likes shiny, and I know shiny.] :D :lol: :p


...I'm going in a different direction from the ones I've seen so far, more of a TNG vibe with a vertical warp core.

Here's the basic mockup to start:

Looks interesting, and I do think you have a chance :). I look forward to your final product.

I'm liking the direction this one is taking. :-)

:D

Here's a little more, added outer consoles and railings, and widened the core. I'm going to push the consoles back and widen the circular decks.

We all know the JJPrise is HUGE compared to what it should be but don't forget the size/scale. Make sure your design could fit inside. JJ may not care about such things but we should.

Oh, I disagree. It should be the most wonderful thing you can imagine and put to pixels. The very nature of the JJ precludes any consideration for scale. The only thing is that is be impressive. Making sense is the least of his concerns, and it should be the least of the designers for this contest.

The ones we've seen so far are fantastic if not fantastical.

No Trek production has been overly concerned with fitting sets into the "proper" space, starting with the shuttlebay, the bridge, and the unknown location of engineering at its corridors. TMP was just as bad, with the rec dec, a cargo bay set that they initially had no idea of how it would fit in the ship, and an engineering set that used set-extending paintings in every direction, making it too large to fit in the ship.

Why SHOULD we? If it's important to you that every square inch on a ship that's not real should make sense, that's cool. But that doesn't mean that everyone SHOULD. They can do whatever then want. :) And please, the JJ bashing is so 2010.

As for the design, very cool. Very different. Can't wait to see the end result.

Well I didn't have time to fully flesh this out, so I'm going with a concept-art approach rather than a fully realized render... and decided to have a little fun with the aesthetics of JJ's little side project in a galaxy far, far, away. :D

Reminds me a little of the Mallet time machine concept with the grid of lasers...
