3DEnterprise D

Hi everyone,

this took me a long time to finish but here are some testing renders of my take on Enterprise D. My goal was to make it as much close to the six-foot model as possible. I must say that I would not be able to get the main hull shader to this final stage without some great advice from @lewisniven, @Tallguy and @vfxart. Thanks guys!!!

    OMG, thank you so much for such a great feedback @lewisniven. I love your work and to be honest, I do believe your shader still looks much better than mine ;)

    Fantastic work!

    My D is unfinished. I had the most trouble with the neck and cobra head sections. What references did you use for those?

    Well isn't this just a beauty! I have a soft spot for the Galaxy Class, and you have certainly done it justice!

    Thank you @backstept. You are absolutely correct; the neck and cobra head are the most difficult part to do right. I tried to be as much as precise to the studio model, using below pictures as references, I think I managed to get very close to the look of the studio model, but still the cobra head (part that is hidden in the saucer section), is too much thick. If you look at below pictures, you will see that somehow the studio model cobra head is very low which I was not able to reproduce completely.

    I believe it is because from side view, I modelled the saucer section symmetrically, meaning the front is and back of the saucer has the same angle. But then I noticed, that the back has much lower angle than the front. Lowering the angle allowed them to make the cobra head very thin.

    Thanks a lot @SCE2Aux. Galaxy class is my favourite too. I am self-taught enthusiast will full-time job. So it took me over 8 months to complete the modelling, then I took a break and last November started working on the mapping. It was a long way but reading all the comments, I am truly glad I took it =)

    For all of you who were so kind and gave me your feedback, here is another render with some background for change.

    That has a very "Image G" look to it. Lovely.

    At first glance I thought this was based on the 6-foot model but on closer inspection it looks like it actually blends the best aspects of both the 6-foot and 4-foot filming models. (Talking specifically the saucer rim, with the Ten Forward windows brought to us by Greg Jein.) I wish more 1701-D models did that.

    Very nicely done!!!

    Thank you for your feedback @tnpir4002. You are right that the saucer rim is slightly thicker than it should be. As for the Ten Forward, they actually updated it when they were preparing the model for its final voyage in Star Trek Generations. To be frank, if you closely look at the deflector dish on my model, it is also larger in hight than the 6-foot model one. B)
