Things are really starting to take shape here. To start, the storyboard is 100% complete along with prop inventory and a clear understanding of expenses. With a budget of $300 I feel fairly confident I can get any additional supplies I might need (perks of making props for years).

I'm nearing completion on this model. While I may go further in depth as a side project, I'm thinking the paint job will be more than sufficient or the action sequences I have planned at the moment. Motion blur has a wonderful habit of destroying all the hard work you've put into the details!
About a month or so ago I heard the announcement from JJ Abrams that Disney would be continuing the tradition of the Star Wars Fan Film Awards and though I've never been involved with them before, I've always been interested.
It may not seem like it at first, but I've made some serious progress on the TIE Fighter. First off, there's a cockpit, or least the shell of one. The arms are now fully complete and are only missing a couple details that will tie it together with the cockpit itself; which is why I'm holding off for now.
It's been a busy weekend with Friendsgiving and such, but I have managed to steal some time to finish up the entire central structure of the TIE Fighter wing! Very happy with the way the model is progressing. There is only a small amount of details remaining on the wing 'spokes' which I'll finish up tomorrow and then I can finally start working on the central cockpit.
I've made some real progress tonight, having finally managed to reach the lower level of the platform. The going is about to get a little tougher though, as it appears the model used in the film has four unique panel sections, which means no more mirroring my actions for the time being. Not the biggest issue, but it'll slow me down for sure.
I've managed to make some real progress tonight, with the top 'layer' basically finished. I may add a few more small panels for the sake of detail, but honestly I don't think they'll actually be needed. The model is intended to be seen from about this distance at its closest anyways.
It's been a while since I've worked on anything in 3D and I've been feeling inspired by the Star Wars Episode VII trailers. Confused what this is? It should reveal itself pretty quickly in the coming updates.
