I see you green'd up another one of my works...

Hi, I'm ResidualRose, and I did this orignally by combining elements from the bridges found at the lovely site, ex-astris-scientia.com (as well as adding in some of my own elements such as the underlighting, glass elements like the MSD, and the customizations to the shape of the "horseshoe") for a Star Trek simulation on Bravofleet.com

The thread I used to use to display these (before they got scooped up by Flickr users and others, and therefore lost of their proper accreditation), is here: forum.bravofleet.com/forum/bra…

I do apologize for not giving proper credit but I did fix that, I also loved the bridge designs when I first laid eyes on them. You really have a talent for Star Trek interior design.

Thanks, been at it for years...haven't done anything lately though. Most of my creative time these days is spent writing modules for my RPG group.

Which is a bit of a shame...might not be in Bravofleet anymore (not on any simms anyways), but I did leave quite a few requests unfinished now that I look back at it...

Best advice I can give anyone who works on "kitbashing" projects like these: Feathering and Free Select are your friends, as is the sketch/screw functions. Can correct a looooot of perspective issues when blending...and this goes especially for bridge-sets, you want to make sure the perspectives and angling are correct. Had several layers devoted entirely to on-screen measurements and sighting lines...especially with that damn Galaxy-class tactical "ring"...that was a right bastard and a half trying to line up just right with the angles on the primary set (Nova in this case).

Just in case you're wondering, I used the GIMP, aka, the open-source version photoshop.

EDIT: By the way, you missed a door. Bottom foreground, still red.

EDIT II: And I just realized that I was describing the process I did on the other bridge of mine you recoloured: This one had even more measurement and angling lines, since I was drawing a lot of elements by hand...er...mouse....whatever. Didn't really have to do any sketch/screwing in this one, except for getting the glass MSD to fit in it's hand-drawn frame.

EDIT III: I should really stop posting at 3:30 in the morning...damnable insomnia...

I didn't forget to change the door color, I left it red intentionally because it's the Emergency Turbolift to the Battle Bridge. Also I use GIMP as well, I usually use it for my pixel art but it really worked well for this and the original Armstrong's bridge, Asperger's can make me a little too perfectionist.

As a fellow Aspie, I can certainly understand.
