I thought I'd post things in here from time to time of personal projects.

I had some time off from work recently and made the Ecto-1A from Ghostbusters 2. I'm currently adapting the equipment on top to represent the Ecto-1 from the first film.

I'm also rendering the image for a 5 foot by 3 foot poster. I doubt I'll be allowed to hang it anywhere but my office.   Grin



Will post more images as they get made!

I forgot to say how much I loved your rendition, Briney.

The Ecto 2 is all about details and you, sir....nailed it.  I love the old tires and the wear and tear on the body.  The phone number and the chrome makes it look very realistic.  I esp. like the use of the Statue of Liberty in the title.

As you were doing all the top work did you ever figure out what all of that does?  I've always been curious.  It looks like they use a different fuel source with your tubing going into the gas tank area.  Do you know what it is?

It's awesome you started to do art again that you enjoy.  I really hope you keep posting it up for us to see.  We've all come a long way from the rocket shadow on the Earth...always been a fan of the GB car...it's nice to see it lifelike again.

I agree completely.  That is an amazing rendition, Briney!  Out of curiosity, do you have the old version you did in high school?  It'd be nice to see the "before and after" effect.

Thank you fellas, I really appreciate the comments! I'll post a few images of the gbcar back in fresh year of college when I get home. Over the weekend I just finished the ecto-1, the first Ghostbusters car. I'll prolly rerender the Ecto-1a with less dirt because it's "newer."

Yes!  Thanks for posting up new art Briney, esp. your Pop Sci and other magazine stuff.

I didn't know you finished "Frank" up.  I like the stubble you gave him.

Now this one was fun to make Smiley

A 2 page spread for their article on climate change skeptics. They censored it a bit in the magazine tho. I haven't read the article yet but I'm sure its biased heh.

Is the last one suppose to be a hybrid of a conventional bullet plus a rail gun?

Also, what's the small hook on the underside of the nose of the plane?  Is it to cut through the air before it gets to the first set of wings?

They look great as always, sir.

I'm thinking the "hook" is a pitot tube, but I could be wrong.  Pitot tubes are used on aircraft to measure airspeed.

Briney, your artwork never fails to amaze.  Thanks for sharing!

Some of you saw at the Lan that I've created the bridge of the Enterprise NCC 1701-D  (season 3-7) in the Unreal game engine. There are reflections, lighting, realistic shaders, normal maps, etc. All of it runs at a high resolution with a very high framerate. I've aimed for as much accuracy as I can see from the show.

I believe I have figured out how to make other parts of the ship using simple building blocks. It should make building large sections of the ship easier. We will see how that goes.

I plan on... well... seeing how far down in decks I can create, starting with deck 2.

Sooo,


Here is the bridge and the Captains ready room. Extra points if you can name some of the objects in the ready room! Parts are still Work in Progress as I fine tune things.











The colors were hard to get because everything is so desaturated in the old copies of the show. I've kindof used a combination of set photos, the blu ray discs, and my own judgement on what color things were.

Thanks for viewing! I'll make a youtube vid for Deck 1 when I finish the observation lounge!

Dang, Briney, that's amazing!  It's every bit as awesome as we've come to expect from you.

You've got to turn that into a UT3 map for the next LAN party!

Oh that would be great.  Except instead of firing at each other, we'd all be checking out Briney's textures and labels!

Conference Room:  (Circa seasons 6-7 so no starships on the inner wall)


Beginnings of Deck 2: This is the small area around the bridge. I am testing my corridor pieces here. At the end of the hall are stairs that lead to deck 3 (Data, Troi, Worf, LaForge's quarters) Deck 4 is the giant shuttlebay. That should be fun

Exterior material/lighting test in unreal. The ship is roughly modeled out at this point. I won't make any more work in progress posts in here unless somethings done. If you want to follow my progress, I've been posting on this site:

http://enterprised3d.wordpress.com/

For now I'm keeping the whole thing anonymous and off any other sites, if you guys could keep that going, I'd be grateful.

Did a rendering of the Lady and I on a date night. Going to print this on canvas and put it above the fireplace. This was a fun style change, and I think I'm going to do more like this.
