From block-out to base de­sign

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth Star Citizen Vehicle -

For this stage I try to de­ter­mine the over­all shapes and vis­ual style of the de­sign. I work on top of the met­ric block-out so I can be sure that ev­ery­thing will fit. First I look at a log­i­cal way to de­velop the doors and mech­a­nisms, us­ing the ref­er­ences that I gath­ered ear­lier. Then I ex­am­ine how to in­cor­po­rate the shapes from the pre­vi­ous de­sign into the new func­tional lay­out, such as the mud­guards. Func­tion­al­ity comes first for all of my shapes. Keep in mind how peo­ple, or the player, will use your de­sign.
