The Cobra MK iii from Elite Dangerous.


[The original Elite Dangerous Cobra I drew, which is actually almost impossible.]
 
Many moons ago (small moons, like… Dione), I redesigned the Cobra MK iii for Elite Dangerous (as opposed to the 1984 Elite or 1993 Frontier). Based on the Faulcon De Lacy shipyard line and the original Cobra MK iii design.

From concept to break downs of vfx, underside, materials and cockpit to Final render.


 The 1984 Cobra MK iii


The signed off concept, it took a long time to get to this stage.


A very quick underside view.



 Paint over and reference sheet of Erland's early Block out, tweaking and pushing the original proportions.


Cockpit concept with the chairs turned off.


  
Lighting and vfx concepts.
