Man that rocks!

Awesome job so far.

The modeling looks tight and its a very cool concept. Those ships...well, they are SWEET! That lighting test shot looks stunning. I love the colors you have chosen for the planet and moon. I agree that the moon probably should be moved...a little. I really think it looks fine the way it is though.

I cant wait to see a shot using the actual model of the ring. I bet its going to look awesome. Im definitely going to be coming back to see some more progress.
Just call me Fly :).

Looking sweeter and sweeter every time I drop back in for a look see

Cool - that ring looks nicely detailed.

I now must say that I agree with Andrey_SE's good point about if true lighting was used it would make it unattractive as there are only really two tones - good point.

Concept Sketch: Back to the sketchbook

In every War there are always al least two sides. It could be a bit boring if the ships look all the same :)

So here is a sketch from an Okayama Battle-Cruiser.
Also a small update on the Scene (thanks 4 some good ideas)

Stay tuned

maybe a hint: don't fill up the pic with spaceships, i think the last concept is a bit confusing...

Thanks for the hint, and you are right!

The ballance between ships and the main fokus (the Habitat-Ring) needs a lot of fine tuning.
I will return to this later, also trying some differnt views from the set. but the next thing is Texturing, and modelling the other Spaceships/Habitat Ring.

See U

Hi Alexander..
you are doing excellent stuff here..
i have a few crits about lighting and composition but i'll be back later..
now i just must to say your sketches are wonderful.. i love them man..
untill later and best of luck in challenge!
  10 October 2004
You are doing some very nice progress. Great composition, but I agree try not to fill up the foreground with too many ships, but I know you already know that :P
  10 October 2004
Cool!! ..... the moon to the right looks great, I do agree that there maybe to many ships. Solution could be placing them in formation. The small fighters, Smaller. The enemy ships more in the distance coming around the moon ( so it looks like they havn't got there yet ) The ships closer getting ready to protect. Contrast in size and depth in the scene. Just some thoughts....

I create therefore I am....

Love the POV here, it will really look great in the end. Will you have the distans sun flair the camera? Broken by the ships entering infront of it? Would look great I think.

I agree with element5 that its a bit too crouded, but perhaps its enough with just scaling a few ships down.

Anyway, excellent work!

awesome ships dude..great modeling and design..but I see one problem there...the ring you've done it is to big where it gets behind the planet....the distance should be so big that you can't see it any more.....thounsends of killometers..........or you have to make him small there(very small)or you have to make him very large in the closer range.....or you scale the planet very very much with the ring....great work cheers
