Re: "Polaris"

Looks like the Krell of the Polaris universe need to go on a diet!

The arches in that concept render remind me of those depicted in "Forbidden Planet", only much wider.

Sincerely,

Bill

LOL. The irony is that those "arches" aren't based on FP at all, but an actual building.

Re: "Polaris"

Well, the rows of arches going off into the distance reinforce the "Krell" thing a bit - they were an experiment, and I'm leaning away from them now.

I'd consider making the openings on each side slope down so that you have to walk UP into the room.

Re: "Polaris"

I know not everyone who reads this also reads the Fan Art, so you may not be aware of the progress on our titular Polaris spaceship model. If you haven't seen it lately, here she is, in the finishing stages of modeling:

Polaris is basically done. I'm really just going through and cleaning up the "trash" within the file, duplicate objects, leftover splines, etc, and reorganizing and renaming the hundreds of objects into something that makes a modicum of logical sense.

In the mean time, I'm going to post a few last WIP images from the past several days of finishing work. Just one for tonight, more tomorrow.



And here's a little extra treat, a concept sketch for the interior of the EVA Control Room. This is a WIP image and has a ways to go yet.

Okay, I rebuilt the fubar'd interior surface of the sails, only this time I managed to do it with about 15,000 fewer polygons! Current total poly count for the entire model stands at 479,200, so it looks like I'm coming in under the half-million mark after all.

I also finished off the slots and panel lines in the trailing edges of the aft ring fins, added back the hinged panels over the forward Nielsen generators, and cleaned up and renamed about 300 objects. Tomorrow I'm going to finish off a few remaining details and see if I can't get the rest of the objects properly organized.

Without further ado, here's another batch of near-complete WIP images:

Re: "Polaris"

From the Fan Art thread, more of Vektor's renders of the ship.

The model is now being imported into Lightwave in preparation of getting shots of the ship into the production pipeline.

I have to say this is will probably be the first fan film that I will watch from start to finish. Can't wait to see the finished product!

Polaris is not a Fan Film. It's an independent production which includes some people who have worked on fan films.
