As promised today I am gonna talk about the interior for my comic. Which I built a 3D model for, like I did for the outside of spaceship that I showed to you in my last entry.
Above you can see how I used it for the comic. It’s still all drawn but yes – it is traced over the model. Which is coming in really handy.
Why it’s so good to have a 3D model
To me it’s worth building models of hard-surface things, especially when they are complex. This guarantees me to have the perspective on point, objects where they belong (always in the same spot from every possible viewpoint) and it makes the drawing process faster. Even though this model took me quite a while to finish too. If I ever need this for another project again, I won’t have to worry about it anymore. I could even fill one of the empty rooms with something else for another purpose. For example someone’s office or a bedroom for the crew. Convinient, isn’t it? This is especially useful when you’re drawing a comic.
I am by no means an expert in doing 3D models. I do have some skills with it but I am still learning. I want to become much better at it to be able to make a model of anything!
Some views from inside the ship
The last image shows the view into a storage room in which most of the story is taking place. I did not model the objects in it myself, except one which I can not show you because it’s a (mild) spoiler.
Just as last time I uploaded this model to Sketchfab which is also where I took those screenshots. I’ll embed the model below to end this entry. Feel free to rotate the model and have a look around!
