Awesome job, bro. Nice ground texture too. Did ya make the mech in the back less detailed then the original? Would make sense, otherwise all the lines would be cluttering op the image. I found a trick once how to make the lines closer to the camera thicker and further away thinner. Too bad it didn't work out (it only made the closer lines thicker until the closer part of the image was also a clutter!).

Thanks man! Yeah, that line clutter problem is one of the few real disadvantages of Sketchup.
You're right, the mech in the back is a lowpoly "prototype" of my NASA-mech. I saved it as a separate file, exactly for this purpose (background stuff). I used it in my Yukikaze landingpad scene as well actually :)

Great stuff yet again! Got any other shots of the units, like entry hatches or anything? Always love your designs.

Thats how the best little warehouse in space started.
You won't recognize the place once the holo banners go up.

Looks great.

I like these a lot. There's a good level of detail, not to much, but enough to make them look believable and give them a sense of authentically.

Woot, awesome!, just a bit small habitats for a planetary modular structure.

Marrekie Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2010
Glad you like it mate. You're right, they're not that big. The purpose of small bases like these would be to support the development of larger, more permanent outposts.

very nice, would you happen to have any tips on details in sketchup? I can get the form of a star ship or what have you but the details seem to be killing me, they end up taking too long and I can never get them finished.

:iconmarrekie:
Marrekie Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2010
Indeed, the devil's in the details! I don't have any specific tips for adding ship details in SU, but it's always worthwhile to study other people's work (e.g. movie artbooks) to get inspired.
I made a tutorial a while ago with some tips & tricks. It's not about designing ships, but most tips are generally applicable >> [link]
