This weeks events include detailing my old Daedalus mesh and creating the Bat-girl symbol.
So this week I have been converting my old Daedalus model into a Cycles renderable version, cleaning the mesh, and adding small details to the hull. I have also added a mew compositing sequence to handle the engine flare out the back.
For those who don't know, Daedalus is an Earth type of space-ship used in the Stargate TV franchise. It is basically a cross between a battle cruiser and an aircraft carrier in space. It is the second generation battle cruiser that they use in the show and there have been a total of 6 that have been mentioned in the franchise. The name of those ships are Daedalus (which was the first of the class), Odyssey, Korolev (The Russians ship), Apollo, George Hammond (formally know as Phoenix before the death of Don S. Davis who played a character of the same name), and Sun Tzu which is the Chinese ship).
My ship is not based off any of those and so carries a different name. What that name is I cannot say because I haven't made one up yet. It'll probably be something Scottish like Highlander, or The Mon-Then. Once I settle on a name I'mm inscribe it on the hull and a few places.
The exterior is pretty much done except from a little detail to be added to the top and the interior of the hanger bays for the F-302's (its like a Jet that can fly in space). I suppose that's tomorrows job.
I decided I needed a new wallpaper for my computer and since I like simple designs for my wallpapers, I chose to do another Bat symbol. I've already made a Batman symbol before based off of the Dark Knight Trilogy and this time I wanted to choose a different character to do one for. Naturally I chose another of my favourite characters from the franchise, Bat-Girl (and I'm not basing that off the Bat-girl from the Batman & Robin film).
The Bat symbol itself is pretty similar to Batmans so I added a pink/purple glow around it because Bat-Girl in some incarnations, has and/or purple on her.
Then I went a little mad with the compositor like I did with the Batman symbol and made several variations of the image. They are shown below if anyone is interested.
