3DMisha's Stargazer build

So, today Dave Blass (production designer for ST:Picard) released on his twitter a whole load of pics of the Stargazer. I started crawling through his account and pulled all the concept art and photos of the bridge set that I could find. I'm going to try to build a version of it. As per my usual, I'm sure at some point I'll start taking liberties with the design because #overactiveimagination, but I thought that this time I would try to document the process a little.

Today has been all about blocking out the general shapes some basic lighting. I'm using the lo-res deck plan he posted, so making sure my dimensions are accurate has been a pretty colossal pain in the ass. Plus, it's a top-down view, no profile provided except for reference photos, so I've been eyeballing heights for now. I might try using fSpy on some of the photos to see if I can set my camera to match them and then try doing height related stuff from there. We'll see what happens.

Also, because this is WIP, i added a soundstage background and apropos props because I have a hard time taking anything too seriously.

Comments and critiques welcome as always. More eventually.

    So, the bridge is still in progress, but on a whim I started building the actual ship. Like above, I'm trying to actively document the process on this one. So, these are all renders of my work to this point. The texturing is all placeholders just to help my visualize while I'm working. Plus, it makes the renders a little easier on the eyes.

    Jump on discord, we've been grabbing Sagan class references as they come up, there's a 5-view ortho of the studio model we can send your way too.

    Some more work done over the weekend on the Stargazer model. Working on booleans and blocking for the rear observation area near the upper nacelles. Nacelles also have been rebuilt for something a closer to screen accurate. They're better, but it's still going to take some more finesse to get them to where i'll be happy with them. I'm also thinking that for this model, i'm going to try to rely a little more on normal maps for hull lines. Some stuff needs to be done physically, but a lot of the minute details stuff can be done with normals so that I can use the ship in animations without blowing up my machine.

    I'm afraid of Discord. Traumatic experiences from when I was in design school!

    Learned a new way to do procedural nebula and stars in Blender. Took the Stargazer for a spin as the test prop in the render. Haven't done windows or running lights yet, that's coming up next. But I am really happy with how this shot turned out. 6pddw162mpa8.jpg

    Wow, the ship looks very good. Can you please create a 4 sides view ? Do you plan to publish the ship. 👍

    Definitely looks like it.

    Greetings trekki

    Where would Misha publish it, as a Thingiverse STL? I'm itching to 3D print this beautiful ship for my Starfleet collection, and to generously tip this INCREDIBLY talented maker. Nobody's put this model up as yet. Hoping Misha strikes Thingiverse while this Stargazer iron is white-hot!!

    And a final render which also uses the ACES color space system. gl9fen93lvul.jpeg
