Hi, folks!
A couple of months ago I started to model the Sovereign class Enterprise (Nemesis style).
Now here is the result. It is not completely accurate and won't pit against IRML's model at all but it can stand close up shots really well and I am very satisfied.
As always everything is done in Cinema4D and Photoshop for the texture maps.
The model has about 838k polys and is textured with three 6144x6144 maps and one 4096x2048 map.
The captain's yacht is detachable and the nacelles are rigged but the yacht is not (yet?) fully modeled.
The observation lounge is a low res model.

    Excellent work. :thumb: One of the best renditions I've seen and the lighting is, IMO, superb. :)

    No offense to IRML, but....ARE U KIDDING ME?

    Even in these low rez pics it looks AMAZING! The view from the top looks real! Fantastic work to say the least. Will you be posting any higher rez renders?

    Thanks for the pics!!!!!!!

    That's fantastic. I don't know the differences in the ship between the films, (I know that they made changes) but yours definitely looks like the ship in Nemesis, I just watched that again recently. :) I'm absolutely loving that last render, with the green gaseous thing that reminds me of the setting for the final battle in the film.

    looks cool, going to do the scimitar and valdore to accompany it? the render with the green nebula in the background could quite plausibly be straight from the film, so great work. the render of the mesh is very helpful for other modellers to see the sorts of shapes you used to generate the overall form.

    This is my favorite version of the Ent-E, and your rendition is phenomenal.
    Like everybody else said, that last render looks right out of the movie, and the rest of them are just as good. I particularly like the first one, with the deflector casting a light onto the hull.

    Nice job there, NF.

    And you're right, IRML's is pretty damned nice. Mind you, the original isn't bad either.
  • nightfevernightfever356 Posts: 581Member
    Thank you all.
    I will post some high res renders within the next few days.
  • IRMLIRML245 Posts: 1,993Member
    cool, lets see the interiors!

    The original is pretty nice :D Actually I'm partial to IRML's just because of the extreme closeup you can get, but that's personal preference :)

    No modeled interiors here except the lounge. And it's really simple, just plain textured walls, a table and some chairs. I'll post a shot very soon.
    What did you do with that big block above the saucer's hangar doors? (I think it's some kind of hangar observation...)
  • Chris2005Chris2005469 Posts: 3,042Member
    Yea, it looks like some kind of room for something... possibly deal with the hangar bay...

    At least by this shot:

    Or, now that I look at it, it's a raised ceiling for the bay with clear windows...

    it's a control room, there's concept art out there
  • evil_genius_180evil_genius_1801843 Posts: 9,995Member
    It's true.

    http://johneaves.wordpress.com/2011/05/05/the-enterprise-e-shuttle-bay-from-the-sotl-calendar/

    I have a great concept sketch from John's Movies Sketchbook and it tells you exactly what that is, it's a control room and an observation room. I'd scan it but it's awfully large and has a page fold running down the center. ;)
  • IRMLIRML245 Posts: 1,993Member
    do let me know if you ever scan it, I'd love to see it

    Sure, since you're interested, I can scan it tonight. I'll have to splice the two halves together in Gimp, but that's no biggie. :)

    By the way, if you can ever find a copy of this book, it's really worth it. I was fortunate enough to grab a copy after it came out. It has not only John's concept sketches, but also detail closeup of the build and final -E, not to mention a lot of other great stuff. If you're building a -E from First Contact or a Phoenix, or anything else from these movies, it's a great resource to have. I already checked an the US version of Amazon doesn't have it, I don't know about Amazon in the UK or other places, or other sites and stores. Here's an attached image of what the cover looks like.

    Thanks for the link to John Eaves blog entry. Id like to see the sketches of the control room, too. At the moment I have a simple room there with textures taken from STO screencaps. ;)
    Here are some hires renders, The flyby animation is going to render tonight.

    Better quality (no server compression)

    Hello night fever,
    very beautiful object, when I read something from you?

    Dude, the conference room looks fantastic. I'll scan that image from the book and upload it shortly. I was going to do it last night, but anybody who tried to get on the site last night knows what was going on. :rolleyes:
  • evil_genius_180evil_genius_1801843 Posts: 9,995Member
    OK, here it is, guys. (click it to enlarge)

    eavessketch01.jpg?w=500

    I have a flatbed scanner, so I did what I could with the page fold. At least the area in question is all on one page. This image goes to show the kind of detail that an artist like John Eaves goes into to give modelers plenty to work with. :)

    The game I'm watching was on halftime, so this was a good time to do this. Plus, in case the site gets hacked again tonight, at least it's on here.
  • IRMLIRML245 Posts: 1,993Member
    thanks for that, I would like to build the shuttlebays one day
  • evil_genius_180evil_genius_1801843 Posts: 9,995Member
    No problem. :)

    recognise the image, it is on the nemesis dvd in the extra features.

    Hi guys,
    I finished my animation. It took me nearly two months to tweak the movements but I still see some room for improvements.
    It's my first animation with sound effects, so don't lough ;)

    For your first go at this type of anim, I'd say you did a great job.
    Will be watching for the next one.
