Small Experimental Warp Shuttle


Just thought I’d share this new project piece. I want to texture it but not sure h ow to go about it. I want to do some panelling effect.

What do you think? Any suggestions?

It looks like you’re off to a great start. It’s good you know what you want to do with it next. Look forward to seeing more.

Hey thanks. I used a temporary texture and box mapped it onto the shuttle, but I’m unsure how to add bump to it with that method. I also added some lights for effect more than anything. I like the idea of it in the dark of space, illuminated mostly by itself.

I still might just add physical panelling instead of texture but that’s proving difficult as the sub-surf changes when I start GGrrrrr

Well, it sure looks like you did your homework on current warp drive theory… that’s for sure ! Model is looking good too. Suggest a caricature of Einstein in the pilot’s seat :slight_smile:

I’ll have him doing an EAV :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve ditched the box mapped texture and the subsurf mod and instead gone for manually bumping up the loop cuts and adding a edgesplit mod. I’m using Kuhn Industries method of adding panelling. It’s taking ages but I think it will be worth it in the end.
