Looking at your sub one name comes to mind- Roger Dean! I think your sub would look great in that sort of a setting. I know it's a modeling only challenge, but I'd still like to see what you would come up with for a scene with this Maybe after the month is over?

Default Dirty Water

Added a testrender of the ship, with some volumetric light and stuff. Will continue modeling soon. But until the next update this image has to be enough ;O))

Default Modelling Techniques

"By the way .. are those lofts? i mean the body and the fins."
[b]

The main body is a sphere rotated 90° selected the last isoparm and detached the isoparm. Then in side view I've pushed and pulled some rows ov CV's to get the rough shape. After that i've projected several Curves on the surface, trimming it (not the best way to get holes into a nurbs surface, but the fastest one). The fins are simple nurbs-cylinders with some tweaking. The "skin" between is a simple Birail made with 4 Curves (made two straight "curves" with EP-Curve-tool to fit the direction of the cylinder I've mentioned before. than i've created two new curves, fitting to the end of the curves I've created before (Point Snapping). One on the one side, the other on the bottom. Pulling some CV's of the connection curves I've birailed the four curves. That's it.

Hope it helped a bit

Default Fast View

Just a fast scene with the Ship itself. Nothing really useful for the challenge, beacause it's quite dark, and the darkness sucks lot's of the modelling... but who cares...;O)))

Default TimeLapse

I've just created two Time-Lapse-Movies of the Body and the fins, for those who are interested. Isn't that good qualtiy i know, but it's my first time lapse, and i'm not that Maya-PRO.

Default Whoa!

Thanks!

Had a blast watching those timelapse vids! (I have an urge to actually model .. but hell! guess throwing myself from 11 mts high to the ocean grabbed some of my attention this week)

Anyway ... thanks again for those videos, glad to know there´s people thinking in "the -other-guys" .. LOL

Cya ...

Default TimeLapse

No Problem..was just interested if I could make these kinds of videos on my own. Thinking about creating some of them as kind of tutorial for some friends. It's great fun ;O)))

Default Still my favorite one!

Hey BulletProof, Great Sub!

By the way, i saw you asking for suggestions so I might as well give it a try.

How far do you want to take the sub? Because I thought "well This Sub might be some sort of Sub detaching from a Big Momma Sub, as if this one is some sort of personal exploring unit" ... Maybe that would give you the chance to actually envision another Sub with a larger scale and it would give us another chance at watching some more great modelling from you.

Happy modelling!
