Default Freighter Concept to Model

Hey all. People have been asking to see the freighter concept in different perspectives, so I thought I'd bypass the drawing part and head straight to the modeling.

So here is what I got so far:

Concept Sketch



Model


Will update as I go.

Looking nice! Kinda resembles a futuristic cassette player.

McKinley you took the words right out of my mouth. It very much looks like some sort of crazy boombox. BUT only because of the middle portion of the model.

The model itself is great. I like your concept but its strange that the model turned out looking like a weird boombox in 3d.

Hey, they'r allowed to have lowriders in space. :p

Yeah, I can see what you mean. Does look kinda funky like that. Well, once it's done it'll all fall into shape.

Looking good so far.

I think the boombox effect will fade when you start texturing it.

Darnit darnit darnit! For some reason, I can no longer render anything. I mean ANYTHING! Won't render using Maya's renderer nor using Mental Ray. So, until I can get this figured out, there won't be any more updates.

Sorry guys.

Cool concept. I like the look. Is that a person in the sketch near the gatling gun? Once it is textured I am sure it will take away from the cassette player look.

Default Jeez...

OK ok! I think we can all agree that it looks like a cassette player. :p

But how about now?


Strange, but Maya seems to want to render again. So.. Updates await!.

btw: those little things on the ground are people to show the size comparison. See, that one is waving at you. :p

No longer looks like a casset player. I am glad you are rendering again. I hope to join you soon. My jeep is not rendering.
