WOW!!!  Since last night’s post there have been a lot of requests for more of this one, so here are all the different layers of details.

without chairs

with seats

with overhead lighting and holographic projector units

    If I could model in 3D… I’d totally make a model of this it’s gorgeous.

    If i thought people would buy it as a kit, I’d totally produce it in resin!

      I never knew what this space was to be!!!! It defiantly has the scope n scale for a base

        Well the popularity of your base sketches is growing by leaps and bounds. Many people in STO are wishing that they replace the player Starbase command centers with this! Or use it as part of the battleship bridge set.

    Again, love this design! It has a great Starfleet functional look to it and yet brings some of that Eaves freshness to it!

    Nothing much to edit here, but lots of detail to enjoy. 🙂 Liking the flow of the space a lot. Looks like a place I’d like to work…Starfleet Command Center, of course, I’d be in charge!

    Really intresting to see all the differnt layers.
    You have said that you draw by hand before taking into PS to add colour. Do you scan it before adding a new layer so you have a record of each layer or redraw all of it?

      I draw on velum, which is like tracing paper only tougher. once the initial drawing is done I simply put it under a clean sheet that draw the next layer on top

        That explains alot. Never came across anything strong than tracing paper, but the last time I did some proper pencil and paint art was back in school.
        Saves having to redraw each layer.

    Great design. I would have loved to see that in a series or movie.

    Very Cool John, I really could see this as a Starbase or Starfleet Command Center gathering information and moving ships around and assigning them to troubled areas. Takes the Central TOS Bridge layout and mutiply it, but keep the central command in the middle of things.

    I’m with Bernd. it would have been amazing to see this realised as a set. I can imagine TNG era Brass like Admirals Nechayev, Ross and Paris giving orders to different parts of Starfleet from a set like that. – Even in a single player video game it would be a fantastic centre piece set to show Starfleet Command at work.

    The overall design seems very reminiscent of the late Star Trek: The Experience. I like it!

    Yeah, that’s just awesome. For like a starbase or starfleet command.

    Or the Enterprise J? It was supposed to be miles long
