it’s a mish mash Tuesday!

Well there ya go, one more week of insanity and only have time for another mish mash of things from the dark storage files of my computer.  For today’s non-organized entry, you’ll get to see some old ones from SeaQuest, Santa Clause III, and Sky High.  Hope everyone is having a great week, and I’ll keep things going here as best I can.

OK, and have a good one.

    Sky High turned out as a pretty good movie…definitely a lot of fun for fans of City of Heroes.

    The adversary sub design is highly eye-catching. The styling cues of a Russian helicopter gunship underwater!

    Man, I love that flying school bus. That was from the concept art from the new Star Trek movie, wasn’t it?

    Everything else is cool too. That sub is absolutely wicked. I can definitely see some similarities to the smaller Russian sub in The Hunt for Red October (awesome flick. :D)

    If I’m correct, the adversary sub called “Delta IV” in the series pilot. That’s a very stuipid name for that boat. “Raptor I” or “Prededator IV” would have been more fittng.

    A very cool design, BTW. But was it really the final model? I remember, that the “Delta-IV” had guns like a battleship.

    I’ve never seen sky high, but the bus remind me about a “starship” from another movie: Mel Brook’s Spaceballs. Haaa!

      The design was loosely base off of the real class of Russian submarine called Delta IV. It was still classified at the time so it’s a fair bit off, but still a really good design.

    I like how you did the wheels on the school bus. Completely different from the ones on the DeLorean, and a cool place to put the engines. Can’t be easy taking something as boxy as a bus and making it look stylish, but this works.

    Hehe yeah I had to think of spaceballs too.

    Hey John, I’m curious about your work on Spaceballs, imdb says you were a model maker on that one 😀

    I really enjoyed the film “Sky High,” and the school bus concept is very cool but I have a question about it…

    …which direction is it supposed to be going? 🙂

    Cool Stuff…I didn’t know you did work on seaQuest. I’d used to love that show…even though it did slowly go down hill. Do you have any thing else from seaQuest?

    I like the sub, but I really like all that intricate “gingerbread house” detailing on Santa’s workshop. Very cool.

    ——-“If I’m correct, the adversary sub called “Delta IV” in the series pilot. That’s a very stuipid name for that boat. “Raptor I” or “Prededator IV” would have been more fittng.”——-

    well, in the setting, and how it was eventually CG modeled, it was a refitted russian Delta IV ballistic misile submarine. (a real world sub type.) the idea (confirmed later on in the show) that all the “confederations” were selling off their old subs to civilian hands, as a result of new ships and the spread of undersea colonies.

    i much prefer the concept art to the CG we see in the show. the concept art looks like a semi-plausible refit of the existing sub, and still has hydrodynamic lines. the CG version was a Delta IV with a crap load of extranious turrets bolted on.. not only would you have been able to hear the thing half the world away on sonar, but they don’t even use those turrets, only torpedoes.

    i’d love to see more seaQuest DSV art here. it so hard to find preproduction stuff.

    Just wanted to drop a word of thanks to Mr. Eaves for posting up this piece of seaQuest concept art. Such art is a rarity and every piece is a treasure. If by some chance you have more laying around, we fans would be eternally grateful for sharing it also…not to say we aren’t already eternally grateful for the fine work done over the years on seaQuest and elsewhere. 🙂

    John, beautiful work as always. Love the Sky High school bus; the movie was fun too!. The renderings of the toy shop and factory from SCIII are amazing (love the stained glass and front stair railing). Would you like to work on a big Lord of the Rings-type fantasy film?

    That sub looks really good.

    I have to say I enjoy the mish mash posts it really shows off your range plus you never know what you’ll get with them. Thanks for sharing your work, it is amazing!

    Would love to see more seaQuest.

    BTW: Do you have more drawings/sketches of that submarine?

    All are great shots as usual. I like how the bus looks very “workable” rather than transformations on vehicles that are so complex that it’s basically impossible to see the “original” vehicle. If you do have anything for SeaQuest that would be really cool, SeaQuest certainly as a rarity to see around. I also loved the show when it started out, but it certainly went downhill.. esp the final season which I basically just didn’t watch.

  24. August 30, 2009 at 1:21 pm

    muldrf, thats too bad. the third season really started to turn things around with decent stories and writing. you still had the stigma of the lousy second season hanging around a few episodes, but the move to a more militaristic seaQuest DSV, with more emphasis on cold-war type tensions and political intrigue made for a very good season. (not nearly as good as the science based season 1, but better than the schlock we got in season 2) you really ought to watch season 3 if you can get a chance.

    I love the Santa Clause movies! I just have this soft spot in my heart for them as Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. 🙂 Nice work John!!
