Man from Atlantis “The Cetacean” P5 and Base

“Finished Cetacean”

I hope you like the result for this old design and mostly forgotten TV series.. moving on to do some Space-ships for a while. I had a few suggestion s for the render, and the main suggestion was to add some bubbles! so here is the same image a little darker and has bubbles.

Man from Atlantis “The Cetacean” P4 “Undersea Base”


How much can you say other that the title,, well its the first time I tried to create land,

“The Cetacean”

The model is now done apart from textures, but as most of the images I would do would be in deep water where its dark, why bother now!.. I plan on building its underwater base, and another design to quickly follow.

The Cetacean

I am not in the mood to model today so I thought a render test using a underwater scene file by “dmind” to see how it looks when wet, I am looking forward to the addition of lights and portholes to add some life into the image, the drowning character at the side of the sub stands at a virtual 6ft tall to help me ascertain scale, and I think I am right using the reference image I have, there is a hatch on the sail (not seen on these images) that I am using, I might refine the scale later on.

“The Cetacean”

Submarine called the Cetacean, seen in the old TV series Man from Atlantis, starring Patrick Duffy before he went to Dallas in the 1980s, its also the first design I have worked on in a while, I started thinking about redoing this design a few days ago remembering the one I lost the other one in a HD crash.

This is the scale I arrived at, using my 6ft blue character stand in.. 🙂
