Default CG Galactica

Here is an update on project I am working on.

Just mostly messing around with scaling and adding just a tad of detail work to see were I am going to go with this.

There is some green stuff highlighting some of the areas in this shot. This will be removed. And yes that's a tiny viper in the scene. Just there for scaling purposes.

Here is another shot of the launch tubes and a Viper along side.

This one just gives a small idea of the scale of Galactica.

I notice you have openings in the sides of the landing bays above the level of your launch tubes. Do you plan to put laser turrets there?

Yep, I plan to put some turrets in those spots.

I added some hull plating and lights to the landing bays.

Here is an update of what I've done.

Next shot shows some hull detail and Viper for scaling.

http://oqudnw.bay.livefilestore.com/...alacticaX1.jpg

This shot shows galactica... More work still needs to be done, but this is some of the detail work I've added. And yes... I modeled the Galactica to have opening in both the front and back of landing bay. Maybe work that in to a story or something.

And here is a short video...

Good work, keep it up! I like the forward launch ports on the landing bays. This makes practical sense.

OK, here is my latest update.

Did some fancy hull plating and added some laser canons as promised.

I also threw in the lights for engine.

Still not done with her yet. But i've been doing some experimenting with hull plating and such.

Very tricky stuff.

Anyhew... Here is the new test results.

Well here is a new sequence I put together... It needs some more editing, but I just wanted something for folks to see.
I want to film some stuff with live actors and green screen, but the green screen thing is going to take some time until I can get some resources together.
Any suggestions anyone?

Here ya'll go.

OK, It's been a few months, but I have been working on my CG project/fanfilm.

I created a CG Model of a BaseShip and currently working on modeling a Raider. Should be done with it in the next week or so... Here are some samples.

Did some more work on the Cylon Raider. More detail will be added later, but this is enough for a cool CG battle scene.

3ds Max for the modeling. Trying out EffectsLab Pro for the lasers.

Here is an update to an animation sequence I made a couple months ago.

Hope you like it.

Also, I updated the Cylon Raider hull. This one I will be using as the Cylon Leader's Raider.

So I've been doing my homwork and found a nice way to create a better star field.

Here is the result.



OK, off to bed now.

OK. So here is an updated animation sequence. Just testing things out, so there is a lot of detail missing from Galactica.

Hope you like.

The blast doors that close behind the Vipers before launch is a nice touch.

Thanks... I always felt that it was something that they would have added in the show if they had the time and money.

Please keep watching. More to come.
