For all modelers and other spaceship enthousiasts this might be really interesting. This web generator generates random ship designs. Just click ‘Build it’ and a ship will be generated. I got some really interesting (deltan looking) designs out of it.
I could maybe see this helping with the initial concept phase, in order to get some different silhouette ideas. However, I personally wouldn’t use any of the generated shapes as a starting point for a model, many of them lack thoughtful design detail (which is expected from a randomized generator). Still interesting though
Dude ! thank you … that is great
Now i don’t have to look at the clouds for interesting shapes, thank you.
For that starting phase it is perfect.
I got a very Nostromo-ish one I’m gonna retouch…
Maybe a new excersice for the monthly art challenges? “Who can paint over a random generated ship best?”
