Did some more work on the Officer’s Lounge re-drawing this evening and last. I have pretty much completed the details of the starboard-side planter area. This is a reinterpretation of the way the plants, the soil and even the 23rd century koi fish (yes there are fish in the original blueprint drawing) as well as other decorative garden area elements are drawn.
Over the weekend I did a little more digital re-drawing of the Enterprise Officer’s Lounge blueprint. In doing so I have found that some of the hand written dimensions do not match what is drawn. In several instances some of the stated dimensions are simply “wrong” for the dimension of the element as drawn in the scale of the drawing itself.
This afternoon I did some clean-up work in Photoshop (mainly straightening out the image and doing some minor color adjustments to color balance it to its actual colors) on the companion blueprint of elevation views of Officer’s Lounge set/model on the Enterprise for Star Trek: The Motion Picture (ST:TMP).
I finally unpacked the original movie “blueprint” production drawings I won at auction back at the end of April and began photographing them. These were construction plans produced for both Star Trek: The Motion Picture (ST:TMP) and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (ST:TWK) from which the live-action sets where constructed from. In addition there were two drawings produced by Robert Abel & Associates, for Magicam to work from in order to build the original U.S.S. Enterprise filming model.
After taking a long hiatus from working on my Enterprise project materials since April, I have dug out from all the accumulated stuff on my home-office desk and workspace. I began roughing out that last of the human form factor illustrations, which will consist of a re-worked front view.
