This multi-part tutorial discusses designing an epic starship in
Photoshop, starting with the silhouette, then moving on to refining the
shape, and ending in detailing. While the final results look
dimensional, 90% of the work is actually done in 2d in photoshop,
achieving 3d looking results with only the most minor 3d work involved.
Part 1 focuses more on form than
function, coming up with unique shapes using a random brush in
photoshop, then starting to refine the shapes to create something
visually interesting. One of the 8 silhouettes in the video will then
be refined in Parts 2 and 3 with a focus on function, refining the
design's purpose and tying the look of the ship into its role in a
story. Which of the 8 designs gets refined depends on you, so if you
have a favorite design of the bunch, please let me know, I'll tally the
votes and use it to help decide which ship I'm going to complete.
