I has serious problems rendering and these
last 2 days where really difficult.


A few words about the challenge:

Personally was a good learning experience.
But also feel like I have a new pair of eyes
or brain upgrade.

A wonderfull experience in all aspects.

Read the storyline now.

“The Immortals Secret”….


In a galaxy similar to the Milky Way a technological advanced civilization achieves the secrets of immortality and became immortals.

For some reason (probable their own nature), these beings decide to kill any other civilization who will try to immortalize (we are safe).
And (probably due to the bogus immortality process), they killed anyone of their own specie with reproduction capabilities.
According to their thinking they call themselves “Guardians of the Universe”
The Guardians Mission: Exterminate any civilization who has achieved immortality (or if it’s about to achieve…).
“The Guardians” developed and improved over time a devastation weapon who once launched against a planet, the entire life in a planet itself dies.
But the universe is not as they think, a little surprise will soon come due to the failure of such weapon.
The failure reason was not technology (no hi-tech shield or field whatever), it was due to the nature of “Exlifs” planet, gravity is “near” opposite to earth gravity.
The universe has opposite poles too.
So as “The Guardians”, failed to exterminate “Exlifs” life form. The exlifs got a chance to fight for their race (they think and act fast!).
Exlifs won the battle easily because of their technological superiority in peaceful war.
Exlifs don’t kill their enemies they decided to jail them into a micro universe where the “Guardians” cause no damage(to other races).

The Exlifs defense comes when “The Guardians” noticed about the devastation weapon failure and tried to “clean” the planet “manually”.

The surface of the planet is inside, that's the reason of the tunnels (created by the Exlifs race, not natural), also there is some kind of sun in the planet center.

It's very important to understand the nature of this planet, so if it sounds too obscure just ask!

Still have to work on it, just playing with arrays....

Probably it will be diamond or have some lasers to help "penetrate" planet surface.

Anyway it would be so far (needs to be more dented), but that's just an early idea... ;)

I have learned a lot these days, and spending some time at 3d stuff feels really good.


I know these power generators are too small to have this detail level, but I need to start somewhere !? :)

I am fixing this too, now I have another model because I feel nothing about the blue one, it looked good at first, but now I agree with you.
With the new one I have reasons to leave it that way (hehe, this does not means you will like it).

Ships also called "PRIM ERITAS".

Prim Eritas(WIP)

This is my first ship and I simply don't have plans about it just started the box and let everything go.

I think one ship of star wars inspired me but I am not certain about it :)

The idea was to create a "nature ship", a ship inspired in nature.

Maybe some of these creatures inspired me too:
dove/delphin/shark/spider/elephant.

Hi. Nice stuffs over here.

I like the shape of your first starship, you should add some details and it will look awsome, only take care with the proportions, i mean, i can see what i think is an weapon or something like that on the end of the ship, I don't like it , it looks fake, the weapons should look like it were part of the ship, or show some mecanism attached to it. You should work harder in this detail.

And one last advice. That weapon driil, should have smaller drills inside the big drill, a very complex objecto but it will look more effective.

Hope this helps.

First of all, thanks!
Critics are very appreciated by me.
I modified the ship tip a couple of days ago, but I don't post it because I am finishing the paint job, anyway it has no attachment parts and I think you're right, I think it would be nice to attach it, anyway don't expect an intrincated mechanism (or too much "realism").
I changed the wings to look more "aggressive" too.

And one last advice. That weapon driil, should have smaller drills inside the big drill, a very complex objecto but it will look more effective.
Well..I like it that way.
....maybe at the final composition we can think about it.

Hope this helps.Thanks friend.

The background scene where light was tested has only the main mountain and a minor one.

The entire mountains and the ship take near 6 hours to finish rendering.

I have a task_list of 20 to_do things in adittion of the other items and 2 more tunnel entrances.

Maybe another light will be added at the next render because its too dark and yes I know about the shadows.

Upss a little late to see each other entries.
Later I will check your entry.
Sorry but I get focused on the 3d challenge.

Well I don't need luck I need a miracle. :D

Anyway, thank you very much! :thumbsup:

No he tenido mucho tiempo de dedicarle a esto,
pero ahora me estoy acomodando los horarios para todos los días hacer algo.

Ayer aprendí nurbs, parecía muy complicado pero no lo era.

Nos vemos! :thumbsup:

Well that's it.
Maybe I will never again enter a challenge but this one was a major pleasure.

Y por si no nos vemos....
Buenos días, buenas tardes y buenas noches.
