The Smudge tool gave me some in­ter­est­ing ge­om­e­try, but I’m still look­ing for a more in­ter­est­ing sil­hou­ette. I du­pli­cate ar­eas of the de­sign and use the Free Trans­form tool to change the sil­hou­ette or the in­te­rior de­tails of my ship (se­lect Edit>Free Trans­form> Scale/ Warp/Ro­tate and so on). At this stage it’s im­por­tant to keep the over­all de­sign con­sis­tent. I’m reusing parts that are al­ready present through­out the ship, to keep ev­ery­thing to­gether.

Re­fin­ing the sil­hou­ette

I’m pleased with the over­all bal­ance of my ship, but some­thing’s still miss­ing so I spend some time try­ing things out. I won’t move for­ward un­til I’m happy with the con­cept. I add fins and move them around un­til I achieve the look that I want. I du­pli­cate them and try to in­tro­duce more shapes, to make the ship’s sil­hou­ette more in­ter­est­ing and ag­gres­sive.
