Images

I have removed a number of older images, work in progress of the USS Enterprise and such which have never had any trafic worth mentioning, along with my shift away from Star Trek and other franchies like Blakes’7 which was a great distraction away from ST I have spent far to long in that universe to the point I have Star Trek fatigue, my focus will be for my own designs like the Halcyon ship, I had in mind to design a mothership for this, and currently racking my brain to remember the ideas I had at the time.

In my imagination I thought along the lines of a huge design, a few miles long design perhaps never to return to Earth once launched, a generation ship. And this Halcyon ships/shuttles would act like Space1999 Eagles ­čÖé the shape of the cockpit windows now make sense, yes! (Londo Mollari voice)

Will I hope to have some early designs posted asap.

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

Concept Design: Ranger Deployment

Its been so long since I used this model, it’s a terrible thing spending weeks or in my case months designing and building models and after the first test renders and a renders I take a little more seriously, the model is forgotten.

I have taken this out of mothballs and with the wonderful Spawn Nebula art by Ali Ries and have set 3 Ranger Class Destroyers deployed on patrol

The model is available for sale royalty free on my Gumroad page

 

 

 

Concept Design: Nautilus Rebuild 3: Reworked Rivets

“Nautilus Rework”

These designs seem to take me longer to complete, was it always so, but the exterior has been reworked minus textures, I may not bother doing it for this build but I will see once I have finished the interior and this time I mean to finish it, in 2018.

Here are some new images, reworked the nuts and bolts, though I did say I’d never do them again, alas I could not leave well enough alone and they have all been redone, a real time consuming effort, boy am I a grump today.

Overall the design is the same but with tweaks that I think improve the look a little more, the scale is the same, hatches except for a new forward hatch is the same, I need to tweak the salon window, I think its too large and needs some structural elements.

Concept Design: Nautilus Rebuild 2: “Nautilus Redo”

New rivets and oblong window on the Nautilus, taking cue’s from the illustrations by Alphonse de Neuville and ├ëdouard Riou for the novel.┬á I was not intending to rework the exterior, but what can I say, I am a fan.
