In my readthrough of the brief the mutant and giant themes stuck out to me for some reason, so this guy happened. I figure he is some sort of toxic furnace beast spawned by dark magics to corrupt the area they are dumped in, so I made the landscape around him warped and twisted to match his lovely physique.
This was a lot of fun to work on, its been a while since I have done something big ugly and gross
Just a raw render using ink n paint shader. Added some more details to emphasise the scale of the ship As you can see i split up the larger pipes into smaller ones, segmented the armored hull exterior of the top to break up the curves slightly and add some line dynamics, added some louvred style cells along the passenger area and also recessed the top turrents slightly into the ship. This is rendered with 6 duplicated objects so the center is orthographic (i think i will re-render and photoshop in a perspective for the 3d) I think the line render looks best rather than trying to emulate 3d with textures. Also need to add some dimensioning and presentation stuff (not sure if the clean or some sort of techy/grungy approach would be better). Also i have no idea what to call it D:
Anyway i havent worked too much on this because ive kinda started playing Aion (addictively), though i should get this finished before the deadline
A deep space surveillance destroyer size ship, for the EVE universe. ( 300m )
Sensor / Electronics heavy, the Seraphim relies on speed and jamming to avoid the perils of 0.0 space, while scooping out anything interesting in the sector - a full complement of probes allows additional intelligence gathering and 3 turret slots gives enough bite to repel frigate sized ambushes.
Hope you like it - Im uploading a fly around flash film in a bit - see comments for link later.
My entry for the EVE contest. I decided to do something a little different
The Samalah is a repurposed derelict. Much of it's outer hull has broken apart giving it a fractured appearance, its strength and integrity remains despite this. It's suspected this vessel used to be much larger but due to the damage and age of the ship the exact size or shape cannot be determined.
I had lots of fun designing this! Any excuse to draw a spaceship
