    Default X-303 Prometheus 3D Model

    Prometheus Project

    This is a new project that I have just began. I aim to create accurate 3D replications of the various starships and battle cruisers that have shown up in the famous TV series Stargate SG-1 / Atlantis. Of course, I am starting with Earth's first large scale ship called Prometheus.

    I have began to make my preliminary design, based on as many images as I could find. Below are some images which have been rendered with a "mock-texture", the final one will be much more complex. Also, the model itself will too end up much more complex, for as you can see below at the moment it's a little blocky.

    If the prometheus proves to be a success then several more projects are planned, including Asgard warships, Gao'uld death gliders, Gao'uld Ha'taks, X-302's and of course the X-304.

    If you would like to see an additional ship added to this list then please feel free to say so.

    I wanted your opinion and to give me contstuctive criticism.

    You have a long way to go with that 3d scene. I've already done something similar.

    Now you think about it, as much as i loved the name of Prometheus, its a Greek tradegy which name is cursed, e.g it blew up, Prometheus in voyager was captures by romulens.

    But enough with my ranting, nice pic and u should keep it up, put lots of work into it and you'll have a pic everyone will want (dont pay attention to this post as nobody cares and ignores it)

    Very very nice and impressive! I haven't got a clue how to make anything like that. It's always fun to see other people doing such good job creating 3D ships etc.

    Me and friend have added to the design.

    My friend has upgraded the lighting and sub-light engines and I have furthered the structural design.

    But it's still a long way off from completion. Here is a screenshot to show you how we're getting along.

    Folks, a word from the mod NO inline pictures can be any wider than 700 pixels.

    if they're bigger than that, you can post a link only

    "I have a question How do you start on building 3D models ?"


    well first find a 3d modeling program, either a free one such as Blender or grab a "trial" version of a comercial one, i like either 3ds max or Maya, then get some tutorials. (i think video tutorials are the best). Here is a site with free video tutorials http://www.3dbuzz.com (just sign up and go to video tutorials).
    I just bought a video tutorial from a site called 3d palace, http://2dpalace.com/cgshop/product_i...647827535b2831 it shows you how to make the apu from the matrix and the squid from the matrix aswell. the next one im getting is from them aswell, it shows you how to make serenity from firefly http://2dpalace.com/cgshop/product_i...396887a9e685c1

    Making those ships sounds like that must take a while. Do they have little action figure ships for sale like the prometheus and all of our ships that we've made because I would want to buy them if they did?
