The Spaceship Design for my Comic

So I finally started working on one of the comic projects. Starting with the short story one which is going to take place in the world of Skymir (which is my personal project). That means it is SciFi and also Fantasy.

As I mentioned in this post about the story’s main characters and their designs I did 3D models that are supposed to make the drawing part easier later. To be exact I did two models and to be even more exact, this is not a spaceship, or at least not used as such. It is an airship. I’ll tell you about the other model in a bit.

Now to the “spaceship” or airship model. It is low poly and supposed to serve merely as a base sketch. So here is not all too much detail or anything but it is good enough to work with.

I put the wireframe (those funny blue lines) on so that it’ll make it easier for me to spot where windows, panels and such go exactly. Below I embedded the model directly from Sketchfab so you can see it live and rotate it to your liking 😀

And this is what I made of it. It’s an actual panel from the comic. The comic itself is going to be in greyscale. In my last comic I relied on colors a lot, even though they were still a little monochromatic. I wanted to help the publisher save costs for some goodies that theyy were planning. I take it as an opportunity to try something different with those limitations. As you may guess I am aiming for something high in contrast.

The other 3D model I made is the inside of the ship that most of the story takes place in. It is more detailled and complex than this one, so I’ll safe that for another entry.
I set my schedule to posting every Monday and Friday!
