Courage, the webseries

Postby Yellowjacket » Wed Feb 10, 2010 8:35 am

(EDIT: This thread was originally created to showcase some work for the Courage series created by Mediablender studios. However, the project was stalled in late May and when no word about the project was forthcoming in the months that followed, I quietly withdrew the work in this thread for use elsewhere. I have left all other previous posts intact.)

A group of ravenous fans out of the Northwest are putting together a webseries based on the Verse to be called Courage. Some of you already know that I'm working as a designer on the Courage project. I've been involved with Mediablender, almost since the start designing printable goods and props for the upcoming show. I've also had the extreme pleasure of meeting and enlisting some of my favorite designers for the project, including our own Namebrand. I've decided to post a few of the non-canon (or hopefully, eventually, soon to be new canon) props and designs for the upcoming series, including this fine little bird built by my brother Andrew (who is currently designing for EA Salt Lake).

He just sent this over and I'm giddy.

Shiny! I'm really looking forward to this series and all the new props and ships!

That's a good looking ship. If the writing on the series is as good as the design, it'll be a new timesink for me. ;)
May have been on the losin' side, still not convinced it was the wrong one.

That's really nice. Cool ship.

Great extrapolation from the original 'Verse.

Congratulations.

Cool stuff, definately looking forward to the rest.

If I could make just one small critique??? I would add a few "actual" raised panels to the main body of the ship. With the panels ALL being just a texture map it looks a bit video game-ish and the few real plates or panels added would sell it a little better.

Still a very nice model though.

Looks like it would be right at home beside the ambulance.

Very cool!

I don't mind critiques and feedback. Feedback is the lifeblood of art direction.

To be honest about the ship, it's the jpeg more than the model, and whatever Photobucket did with the compression. Almost all the panels and seams are modeled separately and all of the textures come off of actual aircraft (the benefit of living near an airforce musemm).

Although I'm not familiar with the Courage webseries (this is the first I've heard of it, lol), I have to say that is one helluva kewl ship.

Like Badger said, that's a nice extrapolation from the original 'Verse. Definately fits in perfectly with everything else I've seen. I also agree with Bronson BB that it's design is very much in line with the Ambulance seen in "Ariel".

Good job so far, dude! Looking forward to more ;)

It looks similar to the Samsara from the Firefly fan film, "Into The Black:

I would truly like;
A) For all the 'in progress' fan films to be completed and released.
B) For the stuff they add to the `Verse to be acknowledged in future officially licensed products.
