quite happy with this, given an interesting challenge by [link] gone as far as I can with this, unfortunately texturing is not one of my strong points.

based on two ships from the starwars universe.

from the links in the description i see what you where going for, but i got a question wouldn't it be better if you add some turrets on the bottom part of the ship. because it looks week down there or you just going with a frigate/scout feel if so then yeah i understand why you didn't put some down there.

P.S yeah im now putting you in my watch list, and adding this to my favorite list as well.

when i asked him to bring my dream ship to life, (she's already in her fifth version. the one shown is the 3rd) i dreamt of fast nimble ship, with both weapons on the top and bottom. not that he missed them, i rather like the smooth belly, and almost wish the top of the ship was smooth aswell. she is after all a frigate sized fighter. the small tube at the bow of the ship with all the veins, is not a MAC with a 30mm vulcan gun, kinda like german ww2 planes, were the main cannon actually came out the nose of the propeller. so a gatling gun with a heavy cannon in the center, fold away missile launchers, machine gun ports like american bombers(hidden except for the small 'ports' where the bullets come out like f16's, mine layers in the rear, hanger bays, stealth, and cloaking devices, even has had a size increase from a crew of 6-10 to 80-100. this ship started off as just a small part in one of my novels, now i've gone from a collection of 3 novels to 12 each numbering around 300 pages, 6 of which were commissioned and the StarSkipper here has been in everyone of them since the 3rd book. its become a real Falcon to the people i let read them. she always has something she can dish out, or some trick up her sleeve. everything from a pirate ship, to a bloclade runner, to a Deep penetrating stealth vehicle for black ops units. she has gone toe to toe with battleships, armada's and even escaping through the guts of a much larger ship as it was being sucked into a star (close enough that the heat and gravity was crushing and melting the larger ship) her skin was melted and the hero's barrely survived to the point of me as the writer wasn't sure if they were going to make it. she's been refitted a dozen times, all but destroyed twice, but every time she comes back. she probably is the largest character in the books. when she was commissioned i didnt get exactly what i wanted but i tell you, buchio turned her into what i wanted, the prototype i had in my head still sits there, but when i think of the SS i see what u see here, not what i wanted and im so thankful i got this ship. she has unrivaled speed, firepower for her size, and a damn fine crew every time. she has no flaws, and makes no sacrifices. StarSkipper was a non permanant name, but now it has stuck. her sister ship Angel and SS were turned into one ship for one novel to become StarAngel. but since then both ships have been rebuilt. buchio is a god...im telling ya

Adam-b-c's avatar

spyderrock48's avatar

I could texture it. I think it's kick ass! Now do mine. now do mine......*poke poke poke*
Adam-b-c's avatar
you may want to ask [link] as technically it's kind of up to him
taria's avatar
oh well, maybe he'll read your comments and see that I can texture and if he's interested he can contact me....so mine next!?!?!?! hehehehe

if u want to texture her please do. i've always kinda had a thing for her being either black with dull red highlights, or her as a silver finish. like way to rich guys with fancy cars. the like mirror covering. idk do what ever u'd like i'd love to see her textured

it's so cool
i have one small question:)
could you make a tutorial about how to create a spaceship at this kind of detail in c4d?
it would be awesome because there is absolutely no tutorial about a general guide in how to create sa ship :(

I will try and put something together, can't promise anything though.

it has blown my mind...i didnt expect this...wow man...this thing is a beast now....better then i could have ver imagined...
Adam-b-c's avatar
no problem, i enjoyed creating it.

im looking to name her. up to this point she's been called the star skipper. due to a move where the pilot/captain/owner skips the ship off teh gravity field of stars. picking up huge amounts of speed and getting closer to the star then any other ship can. so out of range of turrets and teh star fries missile tracking systems. but i dont think the name fits..i heard valiant..and i kinda like that got any names you could think of.
Adam-b-c's avatar
star-braven? braven-star? star braver?
devilscalling's avatar
i was not thinking like that i meant a cool name...like valiant was my first but if u had one like the relentless...or something like that...
