mclea1mm - Ambassador Class

Howdy all,

I modeled the Ambassador class starship a couple of years ago, but I decided to challenge myself and see how quickly I could re-do it with some of the new techniques I've learned.

As with my Intrepid class, this will be a model optimized for games, so it won't hold up to extreme close-ups. I like to be as accurate as I can, but I try not to sweat the details if they start to eat up a lot of time.

Anyways, I don't have as many early renders as I would normally share, since I've been moving so fast on this one. In fact, this should just need a little more detailing before I move on to texturing. But I thought I'd share it anyways.

Hello, making some progress on textures. These are being applied to the final low-poly model (approx 9000 polys)

To be honest, I´m not a fan of that particular class of Starship at all. That being said, I think you did a great job modelling it. Very well done indeed

Re: mclea1mm - Ambassador Class

Thanks! Yeah, I think it took some time for the design to grow on me. I appreciate how it seems to slot in nicely between the Excelsior and Galaxy glasses, but I have to admit it lacks the iconic-ness of either of those designs. I particularly like the shape of the engineering hull, streamlined but muscular like a dolphin or a whale.

Wow. I, too, am not a particular fan of this design but you did a GREAT job modeling her and some of the angles you chose to render are far superior than we got on the TV.
Thank you for sharing your work!
