After winning their second war against the Narn, a lone starfighter returns through a wormhole to Centauri Prime.
(Actually I didn't really like Babylon 5, but thought the ship would lend itself to a good image) All the individual parts were rendered and then composited in Photoshop with some overpainting. I wanted to create more of a Matte painting effect rather than a straight forward render.
Software used:

Vue R10 Xstream
Photoshop CS5
3DS Max 2012.

The great mining ship qo'ravus sat in the water as the overseer looked on. H2o was the most valuable commodity in the galaxy, fusion drives were redundant without the hydrogen extracted from it. (5 years and 1778 days ago)

I used an old project of mine for this entry. The ship was done by extruding a cube multiple times. Unfortunately this project was not intended for PXL eyes and so, i don't have a SBS for the creation of the ship.
