Have a great day!

>> Thanks, Oli. Actually you won't see these models. There were done back in 2009. They got some new designers and a new Art Director on board the next year, and they changed most of everything based on the new directions. I was back to working on Rift at that time.

Here's another personal project in my series of Sci-Fi interiors.

Skp + VrayFS + Photoshop

Have a good day!

Hi there,

Have a great day!

Lovin' your work Ken :-)

Especially the giant, sculptural machines a few posts above.

Some of your more orgainc stuff reminds me of Sparth's paintings - http://sparth.tumblr.com/

Was wondering if he was an influence :-) Either way, awesome work - I always check out your threads first when I visit this site.

Love following your work here. It's great you share them with us!
These last ones lead me to ask have you experimented with structures that grow semi-organically or fractal-like like space stations or Paolo Soleri concepts?

>> Thanks for your kind comments. Since you ask the question, I'd thought I post some more of my personal projects/sci-fi environments during the in-between job period. I hope this will satisfy your question about fractal. ;)

This is one of my favorite sci-fi models. Lots of details and challenges.





The alien spaceship is one of my alien vehicles from my earlier posts.


Just for fun, I exported into Lumion3D to add glass material.


Thanks for visiting. Have a wonderful week! :enlight:

Best,

_KN

Hi there,

Here's a view from below of that Alien interior environment posted above.

This one is a raw render with no postwork and paintover yet.

Take care,

>> Bonjour Pilou. I am mainly using TIG's set of extrusion tools (Extrude Edges by Rails, etc.). I have been using the Create Mesh from Tgi3D for lots of my organic models lately. I do have Artisan. It is a great plugin, but I somehow don't have the chance to use it a lot.

Have a great day!

Hello everyone,

I hope you have a good weekend.

Here are some old SketchUp models/ Alien and human props I did for the game Defiance back in early 2010.

Take care,

_KN
