Babylon 5 Shuttle update

(Bapsis) #1

Hey all,

Ok, finished the ship, did some better lighting and added the stars and nebula etc…
Any suggestions to improve on it or comments?


Blend on, and blend well!!!

Its a nice looking shuttle, but I think at times your texture drowns out the modeling. I’m not sure how much detail you model into it, but it seems to hint at complexity. I think the texture distorts that complexity.

Good work though!

Looks pretty neat. I think that you should give the picture some more light so that we can “see” the model… I like the windows :smiley:

Well done bapsis 8)

Nice modelling job. I know I said it before, but the Lightwave tute is a pain in the but to use. I bailed on it my forst time. Maybe I will try it again. Although, I will model and render it in Lightwave.

Did you make the textures yourself on this one, or did you get them from somewhere else?

:frowning: What is wrong with using blender?

DAK: Nothing wrong with blender. Bapsis did this all in blender. Just done from a Lightwave tute.

Hey all,
Thanks for the nice responces, im still a “newbie” to 3D so any tips you all give is very appreciated. Specially with texturing and lighting, as i dont know too much about them, and infact that jpg i textured the shuttle with was someone elses, cant remeber where i got it from in my mad search for metal tiles, but i posted it up at: : if you want it.
Does anyone else know of any good texturing sites, particularily sci-fi type stuff?


Blend on, and blend well!!!

PS: I would post the model of this shuttle for the community to use or retexture or whatever, only thing is dosent allow you to upload .blends, so if anyone would like to host it for me on their site just let me know! :wink:

hey, lol, i got that texture too…its not metal tiles, lol, its a headlight =)…its not mine, its a photo from somewhere i found when i too was in a mad seacrh for textures… nice shuttle! really cool design

Upon closer examination your right, it is a headlight!!! The site i got it from had it listed under metal tiles, hehe :wink:
Oh well, i guess a headlight coverd shuttle pod dosent look too too bad, might try to re-texture her in the future.
Thanks for pointing that out though, it did give me a good laugh. :wink:
