New Rough Painting: "Gas City III"

With very limited painting time this week, I started this one image, and after 2 hours, I was like 1% done. It turned out to be way more complex than I had originally hoped, and here I had wanted to do something quick. Frustrated and tired, I quickly whipped this gas city rough out to relax. I promise I'll get back to the other image some week when I have some decent time to devote to it.

New Hard Surface Model Rough



One of a number of starship hull test images. I made these images to explore variations in greebling and hull plate shapes and configurations. The tests are a little less practical and a little more abstract, but they have been really helpful, and should be a great source of inspiration and practical experience the next time I decide to make a full fledged 3d model of a starship, space station or even a mechanized planet. Parts were modeled in 3dsmax, rendered with brazil, some was painted in photoshop, and many patterns were inspired and produced by Darktree, Bercon Noise and Filterforge procedural patterns. This is my first new Tech Floor after a 2 year break.

Here's a quick Silhouette Sketch. The hope was that after adding all the greebles, it would retain many of these larger shapes...
