I started this a few days ago, for someone who recently started writing a webcomic. The artist certainly can get the job done, but he isn’t into 3d.
I don’t complain – I dig having some creative room, and the missing front view only made me rub my hands.
Yes, I have a weird taste when it comes to spaceships.
Here’s a test render.
Still plenty to do. The Blender screenshot shows (in the lower left viewport) that I still have to do the rockets and the underside; it’s likely to be pipework. The geometry still needs some polishing here and there, and there’s still detailed texturing to be done.
