A Humble Curiosity by Chrisofedf
A Humble Curiosity
The Zero X crew find the buried remains of a previous visitor to mars.

Coincidently posting this the same day Beagle 2 was found on the martian surface. I remember reading that Curiosity would eventually fail through wear and tear  and be buried by dust storms. Probably not to the degree shown here, but hey you never know what those pesky rock snakes get up to.

Infinite by Chrisofedf
Infinite
The Prototype, a specially designed ship capable of with-standing and navigating the forces of a black hole is deployed to begin it's journey.

I was asked to do this little piece of production artwork for Infinite, a web-series currently in development. The Protoype and station where designed by Peter Houlihan. :)

Delicious Salvage by Chrisofedf
Delicious Salvage
The Salvage ship "Yuri" preys upon another victim of a nearby anomaly. Ships like these are common in the more remote spots around the galaxy. They are generally considered bad luck or even a threat by other spacefarers as it's widely believed that the more desperate Captains sometimes make Salvage of their own.

I've been working on this off and on for two months so I figured its about time to show it to the world, can't say i'm entirely happy with the composition, but ah well.

5 Star 5 - Stealth transport. by Chrisofedf
5 Star 5 - Stealth transport.
Here is one of the latest developments in the current adventure that is my life this year. Some of you may have heard of "Five Star Five", a feature film Gerry Anderson was set to make hot off the heels of Space 1999. Sadly the film didn't make it past pre-production. I remember finding out about it from a book and I always wondered how it would have turned out. 

Turns out very little of the film remains, just a few rough study models and props and of course the script so as a pet project I decided to create some scenes from the film and needless to say it's been mad fun. If you want to read the full article and see more of the designs then follow this link. :)

Pictured here is the Zargonian staelth transport from the films pre titles. Anderson Entertainment published the first few pages of what would have been the film’s opening sequence. We see a hypersonic stealth craft hurtle through the sky,  this craft is our first look at Zargonian technology and it needs to look dark and aggressive.

For inspiration I looked at the lockheed Blackbird and gave it a sort of alien make over, it is variable geometry so smaller scissor like wings fold out and its midsection lowers to reveal the boarding ramp. Just imagine a model of this cruising along to a composited pre-filmed sky, (Ala “Firefox”).

For Science! by Chrisofedf
For Science!
Another spacecraft to populate the growing "Life on the Edge" universe.

The Cassandra is A United Earth Alliance science vessel designed  for research within known Space. She is about 180 meters long, with two shuttles and a crew of about 20. 

The script called for a military science vessel, so here she is, not quite as flashy as the HerculesHercules Rising by Chrisofedf  I went down a more 80s/70s inspired route for this one, I felt the AWACS pod made it more "sciencey"

This ship marks a breakthrough for me in blender, while the final shot was vue/photoshop the ship was modelled and textured in blender. Still getting the hang of the cycles renderer but nearly there :)

Woohoo! I was asked to write a blog post for the Official Gerry Anderson site. Mega chuffed.

My entry can be viewed here: www.gerryanderson.co.uk/inspir…

In other news i'm saving for some new filming equipment so I am now open to do a few commissions. Note me if your interested, :) I'll say provisionally 50 per picture unless any major new model work is required.

  • Mood: Artistic
  • Listening to: The Space Battleship Yamato soundtrack.
  • Reading: Back over this.
