Well, I figured it was time for a new set. This time, the focus is on the New Earth Spacedock.
I tried to take one image per work day, between January 29th 2014, and April 8th, 2014. This covers the time from the finalized/approved whitebox, to it's essentially completed state last week. I did miss a day here and there, but the images are still pretty representative of the process.
WARNING: These are larger images than the New Romulus batch, so you probably want to take them one at a time. Please be patient and give them a little time to load first.
As before, this only reflects what was in the game on any given day. These images are not showing you all of the hard work done on models, textures, materials, etc done outside of the game.
I was a little smarter about it this time, and set up the shots when I started, so that I could just take an image a day. However, that means that as things changed, some of the positions had to be shifted around a little. I also upgraded my monitor a couple days into the process, so you'll notice a jump in image size at one point.
That's awesome! I appreciate you taking the time to give us a sneak peak behind the curtain.
Edit: I have a question. Prior to whiteboxing, how do you guys figure out the layout of the space. I assume you knew early on that you were going to sandwich the area between the docking bay and outer hull, but how do you take it from idea to the first modeling pass?

Btw. I see you tried to make the shipyard more reminiscent of a galaxy bridge (at least it seems so to me). If anything, the resulting one is a bit dark, but still fitting with the overall theme.
