Where does the time go?

I not had the chance to model much in the last few weeks. This is due to me stopped taking the train into work and getting back on the old push bike.

I use to model on the way into and out of work. 50min each way modelling was a good way to kill the time and the kids and wife would not interupt me every five mins. LOL

so no train means less time to crack open Blender.

For those that are intrested I ride 15.1 Miles into and out of work. that 30.2 miles a day. 151 miles a week and roughly 604 milles a month (that for a for week month.)

I have included a map of the route I take.

As you can see I ride form the out skirts of London stright into the center. (I finish near Trafalger Square.) I get to go along part of the London Maraton Route. (From Woolwich all the way to near Canada water) this means I go though Greenwich. Once into the city inself I ride from London Bridge Station along the Themes to Jubelee Walk, and across the river and I am pritty much done.

Naraka Engine

Back when I was creating my Own Universe called "To Hell and Beyond".
I started to build a ship for my villians called the Naraka.
(I did a search for different names on hell and Naraka came up as the hindi word for it. Though I was told by one of the guys at work that was not the case, I liked the name so kept it.)

I started out with the engines. As I was happy with the way they turned out I thought it would be cool to do a pic.

It is a duel directional Sublight Engine with two thrusters.
Don’t ask how it works as I don’t know but I though it looked like a functional engine. (Though I could have made it more completed.)

The Engine on the left is the full version while the one on the right is a cutaway version.

I finished modelling the ship but never got round to do the textures for the rest of it as I was still learning at the time. Still am LOL.

I built two other ships for the universe, but never really did anything more for it except for a start a stroy that was never finished.

My First finished model in Blender

This is the first model I had finished in Blender.
I had first tired to build a Star Trek ship which did not turn out to well as my skill where limted and I still trying to figuer how the software worked, still am.
So with the lack of success from that, I though I try something a little easier.
It not great but did not turn out to bad either. I did not know how to do text at the time in Blender so I model all of that by hand. this is why it looks a little rough.

I might go back and redo this some day. That is if I ever go back and try another Trek ship. LOL

Project Robot

I have been working on building a robot on and off for the past two weeks. Most of the work done so far has been on the head.

I started on the outside beofre moving on to do the internal modelling. I think I am now at a stage where I can say that the head is done except for the texturing. Though I am still not sure if I should have pistons in the jaw or not.

I have started to model the main body, it just a rough shape at the moment, this is the first time I have modelled an organic shape so it taking time to get it right. Normal I model ships.

On of the beauty of the free 3d modelling appliaction Blender, (A link to the Blender site is in my first post.) is that there are hundreds of models out there that you can download if you can't build your own. some are free and some you have to pay for.

Anyway not long after finding this great appliaction I hit a road block, I did not know how to create anything and I wanted to create picture then and there. After visiting some of the many 3d forums out there I found out about Trek models you could download for Blender.
This is what I did, and created this this picture, using Blender and Photoshop.

It took me a while to get it right but I was happy with it.

The stroy being this one, is that the USS Enterprise - A, comes across a long lost Constitution class inside this purple nebula.

Please note that if you ever us some one else models to create a pictuer, make sure you give them credit for the work they have done. you can tick people off and suing has happened.
Make sure you use read the trems and condtions to using someone model that you have downloaded.
