Produce an orthographic sketch
Once I’m happy with the beauty render, I’ll send this to the 3D modellers along with an orthographic sketch of the basic forms from a variety of angles. However good your concept might seem from one angle, someone else’s view of it might be completely different. Your sleek spaceship might come back looking like a duck. We’ve all been there!
Submit your work for approval
The spaceship design is complete so it’s time to submit it to my art director. I almost forgot the most important piece of advice: have fun! If you aren’t having fun then you aren’t fully interested, and if you aren’t fully interested then you aren’t going to produce your best work.
