Bwuh..bwuh...duh...duh...

And I thought the one available at the SketchUp Warehouse was detailed!

That has got to be the ULTIMATE Satellite of Love digital model!!!

You guys can have your Enterprise meshes; by hook or by crook I will find a way to obtain this data once Gep completes it!!!

Sincerely,

Bill

Nice! Can't imagine trying to do all those greebles. So, does it have a set of numbered doors on the inside?

Thanks. Not sure if you'd want it, though -- it's nearly 800,000 faces at the moment (if I don't mirror the details onto the hidden side – it shoots up to over 1.1 million if I do), and about 26 megs of data. Once I finish detailing and UV the sucker it's going to shoot through the roof. I can easily see this exceeding 100 megs by the time it's done. The upside to that approach is that you can push the camera right up to the hull and it holds up. The bad is, well, it's a huge model.

It's not as hard as it looks. It's all kitbashing right now; I'm teaching myself modo and that software has a very cool feature where you can save meshes to a library and drag-and-drop them into a scene from a little pop-up palette. I saved out a few hundred kit pieces I either built myself or collected from various sources and have been using them to detail it. It's pretty fast.

Nope. I'm not that crazy.

That's cool. Part of a larger project, or just for your own enjoyment?

Just for fun. My soul has an inscrutable yearning to achieve Ultimate Nurnage, and so I wander ever further down the path of hyper-detailed spaceships. The Satellite seemed like as good a target as any.

Ever thought of doing a Star Destroyer? I'd love someone to turn this sketch into a nice model:

Re: The "what are you working on?" Art thread.

The thought has occurred to me. I'd want to track down and replicate many more of the kit parts used on the ISD models before ever tackling something like that, though. Those things were crazy.

Re: The "what are you working on?" Art thread.

Do you ever go to scifi-meshes.com? I think someone there had some greeble kits. It's also worth seeing fractalsponge's different projects there. He seems to a be a master of Star Wars CGI. (So good that Lucas Arts/Film has used some of it, though without giving due credit)

I don't, no. Might be a good place to hit up!

Googling his name, his stuff looks familiar. I think I recall seeing some of it when I used to spend time on StarDestroyer.net. Pretty damn impressive stuff, and a lot better than what I can do.

Re: The "what are you working on?" Art thread.

Here’s a small preview of a professional book cover I just completed for a friend’s first published novel, due out the beginning of next year, which is pretty much all I can say about it for the moment.

No, that's only part of the bottom half of the front cover. I didn't want to give too much away by showing the whole thing. Not that I'm hiding anything particularly recognizable but the publisher would prefer to save the full image for the book itself.

Re: The "what are you working on?" Art thread.

I'm making my own transforming robot toy from scratch. It's Vehicle Team Voltron, made in the style of the 1980s Panosh Place Voltron toy line, which catered only to the more popular Lion Force Voltron.

In addition to transforming into its 15 vehicles, which can form three larger fighters, each of the 15 vehicles will be able to accommodate a 3-3/4" action figure of its pilot.

I sketched the designs onto 1-millimeter-per-square graph paper, and I made crude concept models from foam core and posterboard. Now I'm modeling the designs using Blender, after which -- cost permitting -- I'm going to 3D-print the models using Shapeways.
