I took a break from modeling the Workbee to begin roughing out the 3D modeling of the Recreation Deck on the Enterprise-refit from Star Trek: The Motion Picture (TMP). This was one of the more visually interesting sets built for the film, but also the most problematic one for us rivet-counting Treknolgists.Continue reading
After a trip to New York City, and also doing various other life-related things, as well as other various Star Trek related illustrations and researching, early this week I finally got the high-resolution images of the Star Trek: The Motion Picture (ST:TMP) blue-line drawings (aka “blueprints”) I picked up earlier this year, from the imaging studio where I was having them converted into digital images.
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.
