Starship Bridge by SeanFarnam Starship Bridge by SeanFarnam
Eh, not what I deem as up-to-par as with the rest of my deviations... This is one of those that's just marginal enough for me to upload... x.x

Bleh, I have hundreds of thousands of blender files, only about 1% of which ever sees the internet... =P

I always wondered what it would be like to make some kind of futuristic setup... Teachers at Ringling said they don't like spaceships and such... And now I know why...

...it's easy! |D

Anywho, I'm gonna dedicate this to my good friend, Shock... I know he loves this stuff... ;)

Hey, I'd like to use this as the background for a commission. Would you mind?

People always want a ship with a big holographic display in the middle of flight control. And it always has to look like something from an eighties movie. Don't get me wrong, I can see the draw, I really can, but hard light displays are just so damned expensive when it comes to power consumption, and these idiots always want to leave the godforsaken thing on ALL the time like it were a Christmas tree and not something slowly depleting their energy reserves. And guess who gets to tow them back when their main power finally kicks and they're down to emergency life support?

I can never convince them to go with something a little more practical, such as a rotary pyramidal 3D display, or programmable matter, or, heaven forbid, a standard ten micron thickness display screen like all the rest.

Hon, you are incredible.
Go into gaming design I i know you'll get a job.
This is sooo much better then the common the crap I already see out there in videogames, and you're not even in university yet.

I try... =) ...My DREAM job would be to model backgrounds for a place like Pixar or Dreamworks. I've done a lot of work before I even reach college so that I'm further ahead, and I learn more. Someday I'd like to try my hand at running my own business, but for now, I'm just concentrating on learning as much as possible. c:

I would do gaming, too... I fear the scripting involved, though. =| However, that's what they pay the little shrimpy people wearing glasses and pocket protectors for. C: Who knows where I'll end up... Although I do forsee a fusion between cinematics and the gaming industry in the near future...

Hell, I just wanna do everything.

...by the way, how've you been? C:

I am so happy for you :) You have a very promising future. I'm sure you can take your work as far you want to :)

I've been good as well. Going to USF, Home of the Bulls, and majoring in Fine Art. Then I'm going to Germany, then Paris and possibly London. I'm jealous of my future self, lol!

Thanks so much. =) It's great to hear you're doing so well. I wish you well at USF!

I've been to Europe. It's a great place. Someday I want to go back to France, and maybe see a little of England, Denmark, Finland, and the Netherlands. =) Hell, I'd go on tour if I could. x)

Oh, neat :D Where in Europe (other than France, if anywhere) have you been?

London's Heathrow airport for about three hours. :P It was a French trip, but we went through the south of France, and we did get to see Monaco and Monte Carlo. We also saw all the cars the Mafia in Italy dropped over the cliffs... =D We were there about a week, then we took the TGV train up to Paris. Paris was literally totally f**king awesome. So much to see and do, but I sure as hell wouldn't want to drive there. The Arc de Triomphe has a roundabout around it, with 12 lanes of traffic... And no 'lanes' to follow.

So many fond memories. I so totally want to go back someday...

It may not have been one of your personal favorites, but it's good work nevertheless (and now it's one of MY favorites). :)

Yeah, looking back now, it may not have been as bad as I thought it could have been. However, artists are often their own worst critics... xD

Thanks much for the comment! =)

You're welcome for the comment and thanks for posting cool art!

I think a good many art critics/teachers/animators/modelers are suffering from sci-fi apathy as the deluge of sci-fi environments has become fairly commonplace with the advent of the gaming industry.

Still, it's BECAUSE of the gaming industry that you should concentrate on making your own sci-fi environments stand above the others. It's something that's really overdone lately and (in most cases) overdone in an average manner.

As with any art, predictable becomes trite and trite becomes boring and that's the quickest way to stagnate as an artist. I think your piece showed a lot of thought, creativity and talent.

You know, you really have a good point there...

I do notice a lot of similarities between sci-fi environments... They do all tend to have something in common - they don't quite seem possible or even realistic in a way... I tried to add a level of possibility and realism in this by adding elements we see in modern-day America... Hey, if I flew a spacecraft, I'd want twelve HD displays on my bridge, too... =)

You are right... If something's predictable, it can quickly fail as a piece of artwork... Most people don't want to see the same thing over and over again. Art is almost always viewed by people who want to see something new, or a new twist on something familiar.

I thank you for this comment, I feel like I've learned something. =)

You're too kind, but I'm happy you feel you learned something from my comment.

As I said before, it's clear you put a lot of thought into this piece as it was clearly designed from an ergonomic point of view instead of simply an aesthetic point of view. If it "looks cool," but doesn't work, no starship captain would want to use it, and being able to suspend belief is a big part of science fiction. If it doesn't look feasible, your audience won't buy it!

This is true... xD ...true... *nods*

I'm one of those people with a curious imagination; I analyze backgrounds in movies all the time, and I HATE it when things don't look like they really work. XD ...somehow I doubt every button, knob, and switch they placed in the movie Wall-E had a function. =)

...it's just one of those peeves... ...like a multi-story lego house without stairs... xDDD
