After being inspired by Mustang's amazing interior build Link and getting enough nostalgia vibes/member berries to start rewatching the show and maybe having enough experience to pull off such a unique organic shape by now i have started wrestling some polys and bullying some verts and this is where i left it last night.
(And again making a thread for it so i'll comitt to finishing it same as my Odyssey build thread)
its one hell of a organic design for sure
the show is worth a watch if you havnt seen it before, and yes stay tuned for more
however on the Show MSD it seems it isnt a weird up angle instead it the tapering towards the rear starts earlier on the ventral side then it does on the dorsal side but the centerline bend doenst apear to be pronounced:
so if im aiming for anything it is most likly a blend with whatever i can make work and this MSD look while saving alot of hassle by mirroring and in the end she will still undoubtedly look seaquest-y and only the most hardcore nerds will notice and on a personal note id prefer it to have a clean line from bow to stern rather then this out of the blue stupid off angle screwing with the linearity of the design from a side POV. (maybe i'll rename the thread seaQuest - 2020 instead just to cover my bases)
Anyway here is a shot which shows what i intend to mirror and from where i'll start the mirror. (ofc there will be some hands on to make it work but it should work as intended)
i feel so old
glad you like it
Left this to burn over night and i def need to increase the motions on the spotlights aswell as add some blinky lights and it should be ready to burn out some more angles, thinking of 3-4 for for a total of 01:00-01:20m of footage for a chunky little video sequence.
way ahead of ya
Another low sample test with animation changes and Zdepth for fog, getting close now.
final low sample test, slowed down the camera and also made a pretty logo.
Rendering a polished 4k version over night.
Idle thought aside, that's a fantastic rendition for a sample render!
