Re: Star Ship Polaris

So, there was concern that the previous grill detailing on the main engine housings could create unsightly moire patterns at DVD resolution. Consequently, I have gone back and created something entirely different to give that area of the hull some visual interest:



I really liked the grills but I find that I like this, too, especially the way it suggests some massive structural bracing between the engine and the fuselage.

By the way, this didn't come easy. I think I've tried literally a couple hundred different designs over the past week, just sketching different things in as rapidly as possible. This is where the 2D paintover approach really shows its advantages.
