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