    Sure, if your name is Mat. Everyone else feels rejected.




    Oh! I get it now.

    Nevermind.

    It's about time those four booster engines became something other than placeholders. Here's about a day's worth of work on the Cintiq tablet, not quite finished but far enough along that I can proceed with adding it to the 3D model.

    Which Wacom tablet do you use? Pretty freakin' awesome.

    EDIT: Nevermind. I read your later comment about the Cintiq.

    Been plugging away on Polaris. Should have lots of new progress to show over the next few days, starting with this:

    Those booster engines were all kinds of fun to model. Actually, they really were. I had to get pretty creative to figure out the best way to do them.

    More soon.

    Why do I picture those pods being set in a circular track that rotates them to the hatches?

    Vektor,

    I have been keeping tabs on your progress with this from day one. Even though I haven't posted many comments in this thread.
    I am just in awe of your talents!
    This design is just a beautifully flowing and really functionally designed spacecraft!
    I am truly impressed with your skills and thought and attention to the minute of details of this spaceship design.
    Really a beautiful ship!!!!

    God allmighty, Vektor. That's incredible looking! I simply can't tell you how impressive the overall appearance and polish is.

    Looks like a propeller. I want to flick it and make it spin.

    Polaris's front view, at that jaunty angle, would make a pretty wicked uniform patch, or some kind of logo.

    Although I rarely comment on general accolades and complements, I want everyone to know I do read them and bask in their warm glow like any other artist type desperate for attention. ;) Rest assured, the sentiment is appreciated.

    That's not too far from what I had in mind. I am actually picturing the pods hanging from a swing-arm assembly that rotates them from their stowed positions on either side out through the doorway into launch position.

    Had no idea what you were referring to until I looked it up. Interesting observation.

    Well, Polaris already has a logo/mission patch, sort of a stylized galaxy spiral. I get what you mean, though.
