Retro – SciFi Stuff 2

While I was at work today, I was drawing these little thumbnail concepts. A retro space suit design, a side profile of a hovering alien craft, and sketch of a Rocket design for the shot.

I started modeling the Rocket tonight in 3D and got the main body, side windows and engine done tonight. I started working on a hatch door and a few other hull details. Ill be getting the wings and landing gear done tomorrow.

I’m going to shoot for having the model finished this weekend and start working with the fire and smoke FX next week time permitting.

I found this cool Acrylic light globe that would be perfect for the space suit helmet, so if the shot looks awesome, we’ll be working on getting wardrobe together.

I’m still wrapping my head around story ideas for a Prey web series. I’ve been jotting down ideas, but I know we wont be shooting anything until after the kiddo gets here so we have some time.

On the work front, been cranking away on the Re-Vamp of Quenos in EverQuest II. I’m building this crazy castle for it and that’s been going really well. I finished the Geometry on it last week and now heavy into the texture / shader work. So far I’m ahead of schedule, but I’ll be off for a couple weeks on paternity leave.

It’s coming up quick…less than 4 weeks away. yikes…lol.

  1. I like your concept pictures for your scifi film. It boggles my mind how you can shift your thoughts to so many different ideas for your films and do them so well.

    I also like your idea to turn your Prey film into a TV series. I am thinking that once you guy gets bite by the Prostitute Vampires, that he will become a vampire as well.

    Vampires do seem to be the “IN” things these days. Added to the fact that he is a killer of prostitutes and saws them up into little pieces, I think you have got something going.

    See you in 3 weeks (April 4th)

  2. Very cool Michael…the web series very interesting.
