    Probably as done as it's going to get.

    I like it. The details look good.

    Thanks. I'm going back to the Federation ship to play with materials and lighting to see if I can learn something. And of course, I couldn't resist going back and fiddling with the design.

    Played with the lighting, and self-illuminating surfaces.

    I'm toying with the idea of, sometime later, doing a refit with some Grissom/Excelsior era nacelles

    Thanks. I usually don't think much of my Federation ships, but that one's alright.

    I'm kinda burned out doing these ships. I've been taking a little break, and I'm planning on a longer one.

    This is the most recent one that I haven't posted here. It's an FTL ferry. The perspective settings got a little weird in the third image.

    Went back to an older ship and experimented with materials and lighting.

    There's more about this ship and some others from the same universe at:

    Same again, with a different ship (Caedere).

    I've gone back again to a ship called Ouroboros. It's a First Ones ship that has turned out a bit cartoony.

    You should make that ship your thread image, it's so nice.
  • rojrenrojren348 Louisville, Kentucky USAPosts: 1,483Member
    That's an idea. I've been thinking of changing it for a while... maybe years, but never got around to deciding.

    I suggest it because a new image will draw more people into your thread. Especially that one.
  • rojrenrojren348 Louisville, Kentucky USAPosts: 1,483Member
    I still have a few things do do on this. Mostly the control cabin. I need to tone back the colors, and change the lighting too.

    Where's the double like button? :) I get that you want to doll it up a little but it still looks terrific as is. At the same time, can't wait to see what you do.

    Thank you. Very much.

    I changed the thread thumbnail. I may go back and tweak it.

    Now I'm starting on an update to a ship called Tirade. I need to do something about that color.

    Heh, I was going to complement you on your color choices. ;)

  • rojrenrojren348 Louisville, Kentucky USAPosts: 1,483Member
    Okay. I'll keep the color. This is two different versions. The first had a problem, and when I fixed it, I made an error that I liked better than the original.

    It's amazing what some materials will do. It looked good before, but it looks great now with the new materials on it.
  • rojrenrojren348 Louisville, Kentucky USAPosts: 1,483Member
    The thing I like playing with the best is the transparent and self-illuminating materials. They add a lot of depth.
