Work In Progress – CHEOPS Logo

Today’s efforts included a complete remodel of the “CHEOPS logo”, after purchasing the license for Shapr3D (it is €99 a year or €19 a month, went with a year). If you feel like supporting for whatever reason, http://patreon.com/eindhoven – it goes towards paying for instruments like this.

Early Steps

I had a bit of a play around with the scene which is a photograph taken by my other half- absent minded me on the beach:

Uhh that’s not supposed to happen:

At this point I decided to do a remodel to take advantage of a higher polygon count and a less of a hack job towards putting it together, still ended up as a hack job ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Giant shout out to My Coal Field- Mike Oldfield, I guess he taught me everything I know from having him inspire me since I was a child. The irony is welcome: fossil fuelled to renewable Winter Bynes 😀 (I lived quite a bit of my early life in Birmingham, UK).

Simplified:

Quite happy with the outcome, the final is actually 2D rather than 3D as it is to be printed on the side of an Ariane 5 rocket 🚀!

My first model ever: Its taken an iPad Pro and pencil to get me into 3D. Quite a steep curve but i’ll get there, slowly & surely.
