Fair enough -- nobody said the colony ship has to look the same as the one from OP/OP2?

Alright, where's the meteor  :D

On another note, maybe someone should make a God game, where you smite arrogant civilizations with meteors, or evolve pathogens on improperly sanitized phones to wipe them all out. ;)

That is clearly a colony ship leaving Earth before a giant meteor impact.

Ha! I hadn't really thought of that. :)


...or evolve pathogens...

So...the blight?



On another note...I am hopeful that (presuming my calendar and workload stay as they currently are), I will have more time to dedicate to working on OP graphics again. Yay!

Looked more like the starship from Sid Meiers Alpha Centauri.

I'm back again! At least for a bit. I probably should have worked on more buildings, but I really wanted to learn how to make more complex animation and practice some more technical modeling. Someone asked for a view of what I was working on and it required me to upload a video. I figured since I went through all that effort, might as well also post it here for those interested.

That spider I posted a couple pages back was a stripped down version of something I saw on the internet. I went back to it as an example to copy for the technical practice, and decided to rig it up for animation while I was at it. Here's the current progress.



The idea is that it's rigged so that you can move the foot around and the rest of the leg bends along. Ideally at some point, there will also be a body attached. So then you can move the feet where you want them and move the spider's body around. The legs will (theoretically) bend to shape on their own as the spider moves forward, back, etc...

Hey, neat! That's surprisingly natural looking animation. Good job on that.  :)

Really digging the detail on this. It looks very real in terms of being something that could be constructed today.

Here's the current state. Still have to do the major body segment, but managed to get some textures/materials on it.

Edit: Adding another picture zoomed in on the abdomen.

Oh, neat! The tanks on the side look pretty cool. I like the texturing on them. The front corner of the vehicle in the zoomed in view looks a bit odd though. Something about the glare and the pipe seems a bit off, though I can't really tell what.

The glare includes a reflection of the underlying composite fabric. It's probably exaggerated, but the sharper glare also looked off to me.

As for the pipe, there's likely too many scratches on it. I think I might go for a more rough look instead of trying to scratch it up.

Overall I'm still really learning/struggling with textures. Definitely still my biggest area for improvement.

Yeah, I thought it looked kind of scratched actually. It also looks like it has angled faces, rather than being perfectly round.

I'm not really seeing that, but I can maybe see how it looks that way, given the scratched texture and the reflections. The white spot on the front of the pipe is a reflection of the ground plane.

Looks good. What ever happened to the bird you were working on?

I suppose that was unfair of me to share the work in progress but not the completed project.





I was not fully happy with the feathers on the body, but anything much further away than the current view and it looked fine. Not that I used this for anything. :P

Thanks, Dave! Wish I had more time to dedicate, but I suppose it's not bad for hobby time.

That's a pretty impressive bird.

Now if only we could have spiders of prey that could be animated to pounce of their victims of suck them dry. Of fuel of course. Or maybe brake fluid.  :o
