Trying to make 30 random ship designs within this September, not using any prompts though. Going with monocrhomatic workbench renders for fast delivery and can concentrate more on the design instead of having to tweak lighting etc., also will post every 3 days instead of everyday spamming. Anyway, here are the first three designs :
Ship 01 - Your standard general space fighter
Ship 02 - A blocky cargo hauler
Ship 03 - Fancy space baloon, so wow, much creative!
For a moment there I didn’t read the “p” in “Shiptember” and thought “yes, indeed it is!” LOL
They all look great, also good decision to keep the same workbench render and have them all rendered the same so the design looks clear and is the only difference between them, makes them more readable!
And very considerate to post 3 of them every 3 days instead of spamming and burying every other post!
Excellent work Po!
Glad you didn’t miss the ‘p’ then, lol! Thanks, posting just every few days actually will also be easier for me should I miss a day as it won’t be too noticeable compared to posting everyday ?
First thing I noticed was the “P”. Then next thought, “is that really a thing or has the Potato been pulled over our eyes!”
Either way, great excuse for lots of spaceships!
All made from 100% fresh potatoes! ?
It started when doing March of Robots then I thought of why not make daily ships, then looked for a month that have word sounded like ‘ship’ (like ‘Inktober’ in October) which is September. When it’s already September I almost forgot, lol (and late by a day, actually).
~ Day 4/5/6
Ship 04 - delta wing plus plating
Ship 05 - was dealing with wrench and other tools before making this…
Ship 06 - another triangular design and trying out another plating effect
I love the space-wrench-ship and the space-dorito-ship!
You’re in luck then, for I’m currently also making another wrench-inspired ship, though for another challenge, lol.
what is it the “Space Plumbers Wars” contest?
It’s Mario vs Luigi - Galactic Edition
