project update

I just got back 7 approved sketches for the Shatner gig.  I have to now go thru and take them to a more finished presentation illustration before the modeling stage can start. I will go thru the images that everyone has sent and try to determine who would be right for what. If your modeling talents include animation as well be sure to add that in your notes.  there are a lot of great artists here that would like to be a part of this one so I’ll do my best to spread it out accordingly,,, If yours doesn’t make this project remember there will be more to come.  In a quick read of some of the comments the best thing for everyone to do is to YES!! keep a current portfolio and resume/gallery of your work so when the phone rings you can answer. IT’s another swamped out day so when I get time I’ll hit all the comments from the last few days.  Thanks.

      BTW, I can animate but nothing like this on any timely manner, mostly due to OLD pc syndrome and waiting for months for it to render lol.

    Sounds good John! I wanted to add too that I can animate as well (think I had a link in my stuff for some animation) and also did some animation for the Star Trek: Of Gods and Men film (www.startrekofgodsandmen.com).

    Thanks again John! 🙂

    I have very little rigging and animation experience so I’ll have to count myself out on that part, but I’m in for the modeling and texturing.

    While I’m at it, here’s another example of an original TOS-era ship I designed and built a few years ago: http://vektorvisual.com/3dwips/vanguard/wip_115.jpg

    And thanks again, John, for offering this type of opportunity to hopeful wannabes like myself.

    Well, I couldn’t sort my old site out, but decided to take on your idea john and get a blog site started up!


    Sadly my work isn’t as grandious as some of the other guys around here, thats what happens when you take a break from graphics though, need to get back into habbit again! 🙂

    I’m not that awesome at animation, I’m more of a model maker, but then saying that some of the best animators I’ve mat arn’t that good at making models either!

    Put me down as another with plenty of modeling and texturing experience but much less animation experience. Not to say I don’t think I could polish up my skills in that area, but…

      BTW, forgot to agree with Vektor—this is fantastic that you’re out here, opening the lines of communication to people who might not otherwise get a break in the industry.

      There’s a lot of people from the TrekBBS here, it looks like, so I think it’s fair to say that Star Trek has played its part in inspiring many of us to peruse 3D work, with spaceships and the like. It’s wonderful to have professionals who’ve worked on Trek out there, sharing their art and inviting others to join in. Keep it up guys. It’s fantastic.
