Hello everybody!

I've recently quit my full time job, and after much deliberation and planning (and having several requests), I'm starting to do commissioned work!

Of course most of my work so far is Trek stuff; but I'm more than willing to try any scifi (or not scifi!) style you may want! From Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, or any universe can be brought to life, so feel free to ask! Same goes for insignias or posters, if you've got an idea, just send me an email or a note and we'll talk.

Workflow:

If you are interested, feel free to contact me at tadeotrek@gmail.com

After receiving an email and getting an idea of what the project will be, I'll send you an estimated time for completion as well as a required fee (prices are detailed below). Given that I'm from a country without Paypal support, I accept payments via Payoneer, and I need an email address, first and last name, and country/state in order to generate an invoice. You'll be able to pay said invoice using a credit card (Visa or Master Card), or with an eCheck if you're from the US.

If you're OK with the price and time, I'll ask for you to send me half of said price in order to start working on the design. Once work has started, I'll send updates and of course I'll be open to making changes on the fly.

After finishing the work, I'll send you some renders for final approval and, after having said approval and receiving the rest of the payment, I'll send you all the high quality images that you might need on whatever resolution you might need.

2D Work:

Depending on the complexity of the design you want, the pricing will be between $25 to $100. Here are some examples of my work:

Alternate 24th Century Starfleet Uniforms by Rekkert Klingon Rank Insignias by Rekkert Star Trek Discovery - Starfleet Uniforms by Rekkert Starfleet Combadges and Insignias by Rekkert NX-09 Ptichka Assignment Patch by Rekkert NX-04 Discovery Assignment Patch by Rekkert Starbase 35 Pharos Assignment Patch by Rekkert Master of Orion - Human Recruitment Poster by RekkertUSS Charybdis - Master Systems Display by Rekkert

3D Exteriors:

Once again these depend on the complexity, pricing is usually around the $200 range, but can be higher or lower depending on the shapes and materials needed. Some examples:
Type-7 Shuttlecraft by Rekkert Type-17 Shuttlecraft by Rekkert Type-15 Shuttlepod by Rekkert

3D Interiors:

When it comes to doing interiors, it is a very long process, as it's not only about 3D meshes, but computer interfaces and graphics as well. This also affects the pricing, as it will vary not only depending on the complexity of the mesh, but on the kind of interface required as well. Without looking at the specific requirements for each bridge, I'm only able to give a price range for each category, as follows:

Modification of an existing bridge of mine: $50-$200 (for example, a Galaxy-Class style bridge)

  The price here will depend on if new 3D meshes are required, if console graphics or materials must be changed, etc.

Brand new bridge: $100-$300

  Whatever bridge you might want that doesn't follow a design that appeared on a show/movie.


Canon bridge or bridge with the same structure: $200-$400

  The most difficult thing with canon bridges is to get the structure (floor, walls and ceiling) to look right, so this are the most time consuming of projects. 

Other rooms or interiors will have prices ranging from $25 (for something like a corridor) to $300 (for something like an Engine Room). Again, an exact price tag will be provided on each proposal.

Here are some examples of my work:

I'm looking forward to working with you! :D (Big Grin)
Well, it's been a long time since my last journal entry, I just wanted to show everyone what I've been up to and why I haven't been uploading as much as I could.

My biggest creative passion is 3D modeling, but now that I'm migrating towards Linux and open source software, I was unable to keep using 3DS Max. I wanted to get into Blender since a couple of years back, but I just found it too difficult. Even with online tutorials, I just couldn't get pass that awful first impression. That all changed a month ago, when I started a professional Blender course on a new design school here in Buenos Aires, called Innatus. This course was the first Blender course offered in Argentina, it was what I was waiting for all these years.

Already after the first class, I was able to do what I had found so hard before, and now, after attending just 2 classes, I'm more than comfortable with Blender, and I'm using it a lot at home and at work (both on Windows and Linux respectively). While there are some things on the modeling side that I still have to learn how to do, I find it easier to use than 3DS for some things, it gives far more professional results faster with materials and lights, and it renders and runs much faster.

It'll probably be a while before I finish my first mesh, but I wanted to give you all a sneak peak at it, it's an original Trek bridge design from the late 23rd Century (no ship class or name chosen yet, feel free to give me ideas!):

My love for a certain science fiction franchise and the ships that appear in it had motivated my imagination since I can remember being alive. That love eventually leaded me to design my own ships and bring them to life in my art, as well as trying to live by the message of peace and understanding that TV show promoted so long ago.

USS Merced Bridge Cutaway

The USS Merced NCC-10020 was the first starship of it's class. The Merced-Class was mentioned several times in Star Trek, but it was never shown. The folks over at the Advanced Starship Design Bureau imagined the ship as a mid-size frigate from the early 24th century, and I always loved their design for it.

For several additional renders, please visit my portfolio.


This bridge was a personal project of mine, trying out several ideas I had floating around. First of all, I wanted to create a bridge with the same layout as the Enterprise-D battle bridge, but rotated 180°.

Second, I wanted to create a new set of chairs for this bridge, rather than reuse chairs from other set yet again. I ended up modeling new chairs based on an unused piece of concept art by Clark Schaffer. They were originally intended to be used on the Enterprise-B bridge for 'Generations'.

USS Galaxy Battle Bridge - 2376 Cutaway
This is the battle bridge of the USS Galaxy NCC-70637, the first Galaxy-Class starship, as it looked like in 2376, after an extensive refit.

For several additional renders, please visit my portfolio.

This interior was done as a commission for Rusty0918. The Galaxy is the main setting of his original Trek fiction: "Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Galaxy Chronicles". The first installment, "The Sound of the Shiant", can be found here.

Say, I was recently thinking about your excellent Bridge work here and I wanted to know: have you ever tackled the Ambassador Class Bridge? Or perhaps a modernized take on it?

Thanks! I haven't had the chance to work on an Ambassador yet, but you never know! :)

lol well that's something I may well have to have you look in to and speculate with you! I can't imagine it being too much bigger, as the design of the bridge is quite small, and the battle bridge of the Galaxy (which it heavily resembles) is also quite compact, but it would be interesting to see how it would develop if Starfleet got serious about updating their fleet by the Sovereign era! If I had the money, I think I'd quite like to commission you! You're work is more than worth the price, but I don't have that kind of spare income at the moment: so I mean no offense to you! The detail and renders are absolutely astounding, and your level of creativity mixed with the ability to keep the right feel to the universe is dearly needed in CBS!

Yes, I would imagine something small like that, but higher tech could be done and be perfect for the Ambassador.
No worry about the money or offending me, I understand some people can spare it and others can't, it's perfectly valid. Still, thanks for the nice words. :)
