The Flea – an aging inter-planetary freighter built for the film project “Decktechs”. 602,000 Polygons, 92 Textures. Lightwave 3D.
This started life as a rough thumbnail sketch with the intention being to design a ‘space’ semi truck. My friend Brian Pace, lending a hand on the project, took the thumbnail sketch and built a blockout in Maya. I produced some concept art drawing over printouts of the Maya asset to flesh out details, and completed the model in Lightwave 3D. For use in the “Decktechs” tv pilot, the Lightwave asset was converted back to Maya (yes I am indecisive – but also SCAD’s renderfarm only supported Maya at the time).
