Re: Starfleet Museum Orbital Annexe - WIP from a newbie!

I swear! First (3D) model ever! Of course if one of you guys took a close look at it, you'd see the mistakes I've been making straight away! Anyway, update on the way today as the upper docking arms (where the static exhibits will be) have been totally reconstructed and I'm now trying to texture the...

Re: Starfleet Museum Orbital Annexe - WIP from a newbie!

Well, progress after a short hospital stay, a chest infection and computer problems! Upper and lower comms arrays removed for rebuild. Escape pods provided for everybody! (Larger than standard with higher capacity.) Windows progressing but work still to be done on both colours and textures. (That la...

Definitely! They're going to be last due to their complexity though! :(

Re: Starfleet Museum Orbital Annexe - WIP from a newbie!

Ok I know that the general scene lighting is dark (on purpose) as this was a test render to see that the station lights were working!

Feeling much better about my abilities now, meagre as they are! :lol:

Re: Starfleet Museum Orbital Annexe - WIP from a newbie!

Tweaked the lighting (an ongoing process) and added a few more textures. Windows or docking arms next!

Re: Starfleet Museum Orbital Annexe - WIP from a newbie!

Ok new textures taking shape. Still a great deal of work to do but it's getting to a stage where I'm seeing what I intended now! Obviously the viewing galleries won't have windows in the floors Click here to enlarge They're just place holders to give an idea! Still to retexture the lower saucer, add...

Re: Starfleet Museum Orbital Annexe - WIP from a newbie!

OK played with the textures and raised the resolution but there's still an element of fuzz to the writing, though I'm pleased with the plating effect. I suspect the fuzz looks worse than it is because the images seem to have been compressed? They look clearer direct from the hard-drive! Main body ne...

Re: Starfleet Museum Orbital Annexe - WIP from a newbie!

I'm just thoroughly enjoying learning as I work and proceeding in areas I feel comfortable with which at my ahe is a bonus! Small update with a texture test. Put together some (incomplete) upper and lower saucer textures just to see where I was at (and YES the lighting rig is yet to be sorted! Click...

Re: Starfleet Museum Orbital Annexe - WIP from a newbie!

To everybody who has commented, thank you, I'm learning from you all! Quick update, I've tried to subtley apply panels to both saucers which (when it's textured) shouldn't look bad I hope! http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f369/unusualsuspex/DetailedSaucer.jpg http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f369/...

Re: Starfleet Museum Orbital Annexe - WIP from a newbie!

Not a major upgrade but lower saucer surface now detailed and comms array placed on top. Lower recess greebled. Docking arms next I think. As always, comments and ideas welcomed! http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f369/unusualsuspex/th_View4aa.jpg http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f369/unusualsuspex/...
