project update for Friday 5-01

It has been an insane week to be sure and the response to the Shatner Project was huge,,, Thanks for all the links images and fantastic models sent over. There were skills and talents on all levels of excellences from the beginners to the hard core 3D-ers. When I have time I have to organize everyone and everything sent over  so the next time a project comes thru I can send over your links to the project bosses. I mentioned earlier this week that these jobs come all the time and I am so glad that I can start passing on your info as potential hires.  The Shatner project is fairly small and in the begging stages but has the potential to be a big project. There was a lot of great stuff sent over in a whole variety of different ways and formats. unfortunately it is hard to show what you are capable of with one or two images and with little to no personal information or work ethics and programs used . As a word of creative advise to anyone who wants to seriously use your talents to get work. A real nice organized web page with a bio, work history, and what and how you work in, followed by some of your best images would be the ultimate force in pushing what you can do to get onto future prospects. As discouraging as it can be to not catch a job, never get down, or give up. Keep making your stuff better and learn from others on how to keep current, reinvent yourself as things change, and find the best way to present yourself. We can all learn from each other here and I can’t think of a better group of talent to be surrounded with. In a quick note this project will probably go to one of these guys,,,,Deg, Matt Boardman, or Vector. The producers were very impressed and their work was right in line with what they were looking for. next week i’ll try to send over a note to everyone individually in regards to all that has been received and I already have a couple of projects in line for some of you.  Thanks again and keep the stuff a coming!!!

the pirate ships of Anomaly #54

 

here are the 1st three versions that were considered to aggressive and not piraty enough. the upper left ship had to be rendered in a more buoyant fashion and that is where the grouper fish idea came from,,,boy I was glad that it was a catch and release on that idea!!!

Anomaly #54 was the first outing that took the Enterprise deep into space to fight the Xindi  threat against earth. The following are sketches of a pirate vessel that has inhabited (illegally) one of the space anomaly creating spheres. This was to be a one time alien encounter so there were no guidelines to follow on what their ships would look like. Pirate to me is sharp, dark, wicked, fast, mean ,and crude, so I tried that mindset with these outings,,, In final though it looks like the shovel version made the grade, and as we have learned about Star Trek bad guys yard tools make the best reference….. remember Insurrection!!! HAAAA! have a great weekend every one and thanks for all the fun and awesome entries sent in for the Shatner project.   Next week, the Cardassian ship yards. my review of the new Star trek film and by popular request, the SS Conestoga, the Sarajevo and more from Insurrection with the shuttle, the Cousteau, and Data’s scout ship.  Coming  soon the ships of nemesis and the variations of the Enterprise E
