    This!! is off the chart awesome! Two things I hated about the new show was the raiders and the cylon's [centurions] I was ok with the human hybrid thingy...hated the new raider! You have brought justice back to the universe

    That razor raider was sick though not as nice as this vintage but...I could see it as a small 2 seat tactical raider

    The original Raider just looked menacing - looked like trouble coming.

    The original Viper looked sleek and agile.

    The Battlestar Galactica (and her sisters) looked - yes, like an alligator on water skis but cool none-the-less.

    And the Basestar looked a little too much like a YO-YO but, you can't have everything...

    Finally finished the texturing, good enough for the little shot that it's in where they are small! 3mgml4zm55be.jpg

    Very cool work on the Cylon Raider! It looks bang-on to me.

    There's a guy on YouTube called Rowan J Coleman who's just done a retrospective of the 1978 series, and the footage shown really took me back to when I was a kid watching the show.

    The shot of the two Raiders above a planet and then doing a synchronised roll and then dive still looks great to me today.

    The original cylons had its fighters, that were cool, the new series, had a cooler fighter...that were awesome....But think out of the box totally. Why don't you, as a fantastic artist...simply create a really cool variant of both.....it's not rocket science....Just create your personal version that you would want to fly.

    Our Visual effects studio actually considers you as a possible employee for your exceptional graphics work and attention to detail, but your attitude made it impossible to approach you and hire you full time. Big Lesson Mate. If you had been nice....You would be in New Zealand at Weta. Working on marvel and The New Battlestar. Big lesson.

    Are you talking about yourself? Thanks but I've been working full time in vfx and animation for almost 20 years. Maybe you should look in the mirror....

    And what film have you produced in 20 years?
  • EBOLIIEBOLII203 Posts: 359Member
    Does this really need to take place here? An outstanding work has been posted! Measuring of ego's does nothing but discourage the "posted artist" [one whom created this thread and post the 3d images"] from posting here.
    SO disrespectful...seriously were are the mods??

    The only VFX film i had to turn down, was Iron Sky, only because I was in the middle of a divorce. Kelley kat Meyers will confirm that...and no macca's in Finland.

    Yes let's get back on track. Unfortunately I dont have much to post, but I guess I should do the Galactica shuttle and maybe Cylon tanker which seems fun. Been taking a bit of break and doing other things, including some Trek, but nothing worth posting yet on the Trek front.

    Mate..your work is brilliant, i keep pushing you to to explore your options. Sometimes it takes an asshole like me to push your boundaries....and aggravate you and piss you off..to react.

    We've had this chat a number of times now and I'm not particularly fond of repeating myself. Good bye Alan. You're taking a break.

    I'm not gone....just been very busy and learning a lot about explosions in Phoenix....many thanks especially to Daniel Broadway, aka PixelMagic, for sharing his knowledge on doing explosions!

    After a bit of a break and super busy summer, i'm back and trying to make the shuttle! Bit of a tricky shape, but I think it's coming along now...
