I’ve pretty much finished the actual modelling stage of John Eaves’ ship now, so I’ve started to turn my mind to painting it…I wanted it to look a little different to my previous ships. Here’s my first attempt and putting some basic colours on it. For those interested, I’ve used mental ray materials to create the glossy effects. If anyone has any tips on mental ray (it’s my first time!), please let me know.
I’m undecided on the colour of elements like the deflector still, so any suggestions would be appreciated.
Oh, and I’m aware that some of you have sent emails that I am meaning to reply to. I shall drop you a line shortly! I also haven’t forgotten about some of the tutorials I’ve promised. Finally, when I’m done with the eaves class, I will definitely put it up for download.
