I keep hearing something about spaceships being cliche in school, and I think this proves that wrong. A fantastic model. If you don't mind my asking, what program did you use?
sicklizard's avatar
I use Cinema 4D 12 studio
I am glad, you see this as breaking the cliché. I appreciate that :D

Nice concept, and its design makes sense.
sicklizard's avatar
Thank you. I started with a pencil sketch. I created it quite instinctively, so I´s good to know it makes sense to somebody :D

Awesome design. I love it to... polygons? :P
sicklizard's avatar
Yes, polygons. Small (Sometimes also very big...) extremely thin, indestructible and therefore, very sharp digital triangles. Sometimes they even have more angles...:abduction:

Very nice! love the greebles, works perfectly. Looks to be a speedy transporter ;)
sicklizard's avatar
Thank you! :D
Sorry, but what are greebles?
quicksilverdragon611's avatar
no prob, greebles are the little bits o useful lookin stuffs, like here the pipes inside the plates and the cylinder thing on your engine. Greebles are what make or break most spacey stuff, and you did a marvelous job with em ;)
sicklizard's avatar
Thank you for your explanation. :D
I am glad you like my greebles :3

Excellent model. If I may ask, how do you coherently implement circular structures in square models?
sicklizard's avatar
Usually, I use a boole. But I always make the mesh editable after booling and optimize the intersection manually ( weld superfluous points )

But in this case, the whole thing started with a cylinder object, from which I extruded the backside of the vessel.
Djohaal's avatar
Hmm, I'm normally scared of booleans, they always fuck up my geometries epicly :o
sicklizard's avatar
Cinema 4d´s boole object has a function called "high quality". It creates N-gon and drastically avoids superfluous points.
