USS Akron Desktop Background by tim-au USS Akron Desktop Background by tim-au
Well Merry Xmas!

I got an academic copy of LightWave [8] for Xmas, so I've gotta pull my finger out and start practicing using it more. :)

Here's an image I made at the request of one of my online colleagues; a promo shot of one of the ships that'll be appearing in his upcoming online Star Trek based machinima series. Such a shame you only get to see it for about 30 seconds in the first episode before it gets blown up. Hehe :P

I'm pretty proud on how the ship itself turned out, but I think next time, I'll have to work on refining the Earth model. Main concern is getting ahold of a better cloud image map. :P

Ship is perfect...not too sure about the background. Could have more detail and clarity.

This is incredible. I think the neatest detail, small as it may be, is that you can "see" in through the windows of the saucer section. That small item adds so much to the picture. Great job!

Hehe thanks guys!

Yeah, I've heard of SciFi meshes (I think I'm already registered on the forum) before and I know they have some truly excptional work there. :)

I've never thought about posting my work there since I wasn't sure about the quality of work expected there. Not only that, but it seems to be primarily a 3D Studio Max resource site, and I don't use that for high-res renders. ;)

Anyway, if you think this might be useful if sent to SciFi meshes, then I think I'll do it. Thanks!
