Excelsior Class Longsword

This is the Excelsior Class ‘Longbow’ Destroyer and the latest series of renders from Keyshot. Updated turntable render is coming.

This was a great exercise in building my first real ship (with some interior space) and exploring how best to do this. I also got nicely-familiarized with Keyshot during this time along with plenty of time in Substance Painter.

My next ship will be a single-seater that goes into much more interior detail and more modern, curved surfaces for a sleeker look. I’ll also be exploring the Substance Painter to VRAY workflow more so I can do some animation with moving parts and such, e.g. opening cockpit canopy, VTOL engine nozzle movement, lights, cockpit screens, etc.
