Just trying to sketch out the basic shape of my station for the challenge; will add more pods to the main structure beyond the ring, but wanted to get this started!
Hey alataks , great to see you take on this challenge. Excellent start with your design. 👍
Update: haven't done an incredible amount yet (full time job AND puppies) but little by little adding some detail. Since I went for a big massive station, I'm not going to focus on a super amount of tiny details, but there will be some!
Main pod coming along!!
Working on the promenades (well one of them) with some detail.
alataks , this looks great. I love the design you have gone for 👍
Still working on the main array details! I think I've got the control pod at the center done and two of the promenades and pods completed -- 3 more to go (that's three more pods and promenades!) and I can work on the grav ring and biosphere.
This is looking awesome, great work alataks
Love where this is going! Nice work!
Update! I think I'm pretty well done the main hub (control center, pods, and promenades). Here's a look at the last couple pods and then the whole structure (next I'm onto the grav ring and biosphere):
Your space station is amazing so far alataks , your doing an awesome job with this challenge 👍
Completed the biosphere and started on the grav ring! The supports and axes are done, just need to add some details to the ring itself (have some piping there already, but need a bit more).
Okay... I think modelling is done. Now it's time to tackle materials (ooooh boy!).
A view from underneath!
View from the Biospehere end:
This is looking soooo good alataks , make sure you have enough time to put some materials on it. 👍
Thanks so much, adrian2301! I am all done with modelling as of that last update, and have saved enough time to learn a bit more about materials and see what I can do with that!
Excellent, make sure to check out the Fundamentals of Blender Materials and Shading
A little taste of where my materials/lighting/etc. is headed... coming together! Learning lots!
Final render! Will be throwing up a video I put together of a few different camera passes, but here's a final render of the materials and such:
Top work my friend, well done 👍
