Some fun designs from my imagination

Space-Rider Finished

This design based on Ian Kennedy artwork is now finished, meaning I not going any further with it, I could but that’s always the problem with CGI, you always feel you can do more or need too.

First up is my finished renders, I will share specs later and I will update this thread, I have far to many threads for the same projects on this blog.

I am moving on to another design from another DC Thomson Starblazer comic, issue 103 ROBOTS OF DEATH Cover Artist: Keith Robson but its the internal art where the designs are found credited to Carlos Pino.

Of course I am taking a few liberties with the design going from the drawn to 3D,and I am not sure about the aft stabilizer but in the comic they do land on the surface.

Asteroids

Two subjects in one morning, what a day, if your old enough some might remember the Atari game Asteroids, while I was rendering another image with this background by Graham Gazzard aka GrahamTG (you can find his art on Deviantart). I remember my Halcyon design having the same shape as the old game Asteriods by Atari from 1979, I remember playing that game a lot as a young fella, not on the console at home but in arcades, my father managed one in the late 70s and early 80s so I’d grab the keys and click in as many credits I liked.
I am returning to my own concept designs now, I have wanted to design and build the mother ship for this design, I might even refin the Halcyon design a little, this design is also for sale on my gumroad page

Robert McCall Space Ship Design P6

By the light of a different sun at Epsilon Eridan


I don’t often post art work by other people with my designs, based on works film or artwork that have inspired me.. Today I got this from a friend, who I shared my McCall Class ship build with and it rocks, and has a book quality to the cover I think.. he also kindly gave me credit also in the image and not his own.

I would like to think that Mr Robert McCall and Carl Sagan who find this a wonderful tribute to their vision.. and I take no credit for the design, that goes to Robert McCall.

 Inspired by the artwork of Robert McCall,
