XYZ Guy was a proposed mascot design for the 3D printing manufacturer. The goal was to take one of their printers and turn it into a likable mascot and eventually a 3D printable file for their new line of color 3D printers.

This model started life in Curvy 3D and modified in Carrara 3D Pro. The buildings were rendered out then composited into a landscape I had photographed in Wales. The individuals were tourists who were placed into the environment in Photoshop to complete the final image.

Hello,

My name is Clayton L. McNally. I wrote and have 2 books published that are part of the Galactic Star Force series; To The Stars and Surviving Behind Enemy Lines.
In 2011 my wife was diagnosed with cancer, so I stopped publishing. I have continued to write and now have at least the first 2 or 3 books of new series written and edited. We planned to switch from paper and go digital September of 2018. Unfortunately, my wife passed away in March 2018, so I decided to wait until 2019.
The second series ‘Galaxy on Fire’ will not be published until August of 2020. We had a schedule that I bumped up by a year. I am looking for artwork to design;
Starship NOTE: I can send through email the pictures of what was created for the first series. I do require
copyright transferred to me to eliminate any issues with publishing books in the future.
I am looking for something that doesn’t appear to be to 21st century - much more futuristic. If you have any interest, give me an email to send starship pictures to you that I have for my first series. I require 2 starships; Super Dreadnaught (8 miles long - Justice) and Super Carrier (6 miles long - Integrity). The Superdreadnought is pure predator, the Super Carrier is a less of a predator that can scout with her aircraft.
A page in the book (and all future books) will be dedicated to the artist designing the starships. ON the page I will not include; phone numbers, web sites, or emails. Should anyone wish to contact the artist, I will bridge the two if the artists want to communicate.
The starships will have:
1. 5 or 6 levels of the bridge
2. A “battle-holo” in the center of all level of the bridge
3. “Two” laser arrays on the top and 2 on the bottom, that overlap and can all be fired at the same time – to the same or different targets
4. Primary and slip-stream drives will be run by 3 mini-Black holes
5. The shields will be powered by 2 separate mini-Black holes (separate shields for “Shields,” “Weapons targeting” and “Drives”), plus a shield for the entire ship
6. Laser weapons powered by 4 separate mini-Black-holes

Please pass on financial needs for the project.

Hi Clayton,

Thank you for your response. Freelanced.com didn't notify me that you had responded to my inquiry so I apologize for any delay in responding to you.

Please send any artwork you have to pfontaine123@hotmail.com. I'll take a look and see if the style is something I can achieve with the software I use. If I feel I'm interested I'll let you know. Please be assured that I'll view the artwork in total confidence and will delete these files if I don't want to continue the project. Also, I totally understand about the copyright issue you discussed earlier.

My initial concerns based on your descriptions is how to adequately portray these two ships with such enormous proportions. I'm not certain I can even comprehend what a ship would look like that is either 6 or 8 miles long, in addition to all the specific detail you are requiring. Are you are looking for an series of illustrations, or rather something closer to blueprints that layout the ship and its capabilities?

With regards to financial needs, I can't really say until I know whether your needs match my style. Charging an hourly rate makes no sense so a flat rate for both ships is what I'd propose. Given the time required, I'm certain it'll run a few hundred dollars one way or another.

If I decide to take the job, I generally like to be paid in installments meaning that a small upfront fee is charged, then the rest in 30% installments paid after the basic layouts are approved, after the final image is approved and after the final image is delivered. This keeps the project moving forward with the knowledge that both parties are committed to finishing the job in a timely manner.

Thanks as always for your time and consideration and I hope to discuss this with you further.

Sincerely
Pierre

Pierre Fontaine, My biggest challenge is to see some examples of your starships. Everything else sounds good, but I need to view some work.

Hi Clayton, I sent you some images via e-mail a couple of days ago. I hope you got to see the images. Having said this, I feel I need to pass on the project. I’m having some issues trying to conceptualize spaceships as large as you are describing. My ship design process is more free-form and I’m concerned that we might get bogged down in details where I prefer to work more freely. I’ll copy this response and send it to you via our e-mail correspondence as well.

I apologize if I slowed you down in any way but wanted to acknowledge my reluctance to continue as quickly as possible so you can find someone else to work with.

As always, I want to wish you much success on your project.

Sincerely,
Pierre

you are a great paper modeler.
Pierre Fontaine - Over 30 days ago
Thank you for your kind comment!

This paper model used to be for sale as a downloadable PDF. I removed it because piracy of paper models is pretty rampant. I'd be happy to send you a PDF that you can print at home. It's not really designed for any specific scale but was designed to fit on the least number of 8.5 x 11 pages. If you intend to add it to a train layout, some scaling would be required.

If you want the model, all I would need from you is your e-mail address and a promise that it's purely for your own personal use and that you will not redistribute it. Let me know and I'll send the model off as soon as I have your e-mail information.

This animation was a bumper designed for JellyTelly.com. Even though it wasn't used, I was very happy with the final result (though the version on YouTube is terribly compressed). The 3D animations were created in Carrara and the 2D animations were created in Anime Studio.
