Default My rebuild of the Galactica using iClone 4.2 PRO

Well folks, here it is, my rebuild of the Galactica, still using iClone 4.2 PRO.

Keep in mind, iClone is NOT really a modeling program, but there are ways to work with it to make it close enough.

I think she turned out miles better than my first build. Thank God for Hi-Def cameras and hyper-accurate miniatures from Konami.

Because of certain shape limitations in iClone, I had to take a couple minor liberties, but I think it worked out for the best. I even decided to get a little Star Trek-ish, and put the Galactica's name on the aft landing bays as well as the sides of the ship. (It's a fanboy thing...LOL!)

I still have some minor touches to do...like the animated landing bays, but that's soon in coming.

Using my Hi-Def video camera, I took multiple shots of my Konami Pegasus miniature, and piece by piece, managed to map them onto my mesh. I think the results turned out beautifully. For a simplistic model, this one really rendered well. Because of the nature of the mappings, I was able to create the Galactica, Pegasus, Columbia, Atlantia, and Rycon.

I hope you like

Humbly submitted for your perusal and (hopefully) approval,
