Fantasy Balloon Ship Hard Surface Modeling

In a production environment artists are often given just one reference to work from, so with this in mind we created the Fantasy Balloon Ship which is modeled based on a single reference in 3/4 perspective. This is a very useful skill to acquire in 3D work and a must have for a modeler working from concept art. We also cover some tips and tricks to improve your workflow, such as the techniques for modeling chain links and adding knots to the nets, details which will help your model to really stand out.
