Here's a starship model I created. The base mesh was created in Groboto3D. Additional parts I modeled in Wings3D and Hexagon. All the pieces were assembled using Hexagon3D. I tried using 3DCoat and later Silo3D. But I find Hexagon3D is so much more precise for assembling parts on a model due to the fact I can manual enter in the x,y, z positions and rotation with numerical values via the keyboard. I think the same thing can be done in Silo3D.

I initially created this model a couple of years ago. But the base mesh close to 800,000 polys. I tried to retopo but gave up (too much work and not a very frustrating experience). I then tried decimating the model in 3DC's sculpt room. But it messed up the topology and the edge flow. So I then brought into Hexagon and manually reduced the polygons. For me, it seemed to work better and was so much more faster then retoping... It's now about 360,000 polys.

 

I now need to uv map and texture.

Just playing around in 3DC's paint room... Not too pleased with my color choice.

I got a little bored of 3D work and decided to take the 3DC base render into Adobe Photoshop CC 2017 and Corel Painter 2017 with the intent of creating a comic book illustrative look.

A base render from 3DC with some minor color correction via Photoshop CC 2017 and Topaz Adjust 5 plugin for PS... I raised the front wing as I thought the prior version looked like the ship had a boomerang or fat tongue in it's mouth...

Some playtime in Photoshop CC 2017 and plugin FilterForge ver 6 "blueprint" preset....DAMN... typo should read PAIN MERCHANT and not PAINT MERCHANT... It's what I get for doing something after midnight while watching a hockey game on the TV...

A steam locomotive created from a blueprint in my mind using Groboto3D. Further details will be added using a 30 day trial of MOI3D and perhaps Silo3D... UV mapping and texturing will be done in 3DC...

Thanks for the comment...

I'm not very well versed in retoping. I find it the most difficult thing to do in 3DC... :-(

Still busy in Lightroom CC 2018 & Photoshop CC 2018 processing my RAW photos I took over the summer...

 

But here is a another Photoshop CC 2018 & Topaz Studio Impression of one of my 3D renders of this flying car...

I put aside my photo editing for a bit and decided to model a spaceship. Base mesh I modeled in Hexagon and textured in 3DCoat 4.8...

Not finished texturing but here it is so far....

A futuristic sky car... I roughed together some primitives in Groboto3D and exported them as an OBJ to 3DC where I did some sculpting & painting....

For the most part I do not retopo my models (unless I am going to use them in a Vue or DAZ3D/Poser render). I much prefer to do a base render in 3DC then use Painter/ArtRage or Photoshop to give the render a NPR look. Perhaps in the future 3DCoat may have a NPR render option?

Another one of my futuristic skycars/spacerods influenced by Heavy Metal magazine and the art of Moebius (aka Jean Giraud).

This skycar is my idea of a future sportscar or hot rod. The vehicle starting to show it's wear and usage. Part of the propulsion system is sticking out of the front hood and reminds the viewer of hot rods of the past, that had superchargers and blowers poking out of their engine bonnets.
