100 Days of Spaceships (Completed!)

Partially as part of a class and partially for my own development/amusement, at the beginning of 2019 I embarked on a ‘100 Days of Making’ challenge. The journey is to make something new along a theme every day,.

I chose spaceships. One day I created a new 3d model of a spaceship in Blender 2.8, the next I animated it.

100 Days of Spaceships – Day 04

Today I animated the shCargo ship arriving, picking up containers, and leaving. I also learned a new word, greeble, which is the randomly scattered simple shapes that give the appearance of complex detail to a large scene. The world here has my first attempt at greebling.

100 Days of Spaceships – Day 03

I’ve spent the beginning of 2019 in Chicago, and used that as the basis of today’s spaceship. It’s a ship that carries cargo. It is called shiCargo.

Inspired by the namesake (or at least name-similar) city, this ship is meant to carry vast loads of space cargo to all the various space people that need it

Here’s a render with yesterday’s ship for scale:
