It is based on a winning sketch from a contest we had so I'm not sure what the original artist intended in that area.

Beautiful job! Pictures like this are bringing me to think realistic spacecraft are more interesting than fantasy ones :)

Dude, that's awesome! And a very likely product of an orbital shipyards, too.

Is that a VASIMR engine on that thing?

If I remember when I made it the engine was that or something very similar.

Thanks.

Ship looks really great. But this asteroid field is too crowded. In real the asteroid material is very thinly distributed. Unless this is a remnants of a planet or a one large asteroid with a very uneven surface.

Thanks Scott. It was nice doing something more hard science.

No problem, yes I know what you mean. Probably some of the most fun I had recently was working on my Mars Concept ship... Knowing I had rules to follow for science and realism, but being able to use some artistic license ;)

Half the fun is thinking about the mechanical workings but I also did like doing the research involved. It makes it feel like a more complete project.

I totally agree with that. It is fun figuring out the design components and making them seem realistic.

Very nice. I like how it looks like something that could actually exist. Very scary in it's darkness.

I like it when you put your models onto backgrounds, even if they're not totally done. It just adds the right tone!

Its massively cool and refreshing to see your realistic approach to spacecraft design. The well-thought-out radiators and attitude control system, propulsion and power systems look great and go along with firmly established real-world design thinking. Bravo!!

Awesome, somehow there something very atractive about this style of Industrial Design - maybe because it is almost realistically applyable. I've seen one similar to this, a USAF space Frigat on the Atomic Rockets site - so this would be the first ancestor of it.

hi hi

I'm loving this. :)

(Small nitpick that really probably doesn't matter at all: The radiators really ought to have their edge facing the sun, though I realize that would make it hard to see their details.)

What do you use to render all this? Because I think I can make a hobby of this sort of thing.

All the model making and rendering is done in lightwave.

Love the small details on this, especially the radiators and RCS thruster groups. Obviously a lot of thought has gone into this. :thumbsup:

Is there anything missing? I'd probably have added a gravity-simulation centrifuge of some sort. However, I can understand why you haven't got one as it would probably lead to accusations of copying the B5 Omega-class.

Thanks alex. These scenes where just for testing different things out so nothing is in a final state. Some times you just have to play around. :)

o i know man i know ;)
and indeed sometimes one has to do soething else besides modeling ;)

and cudoos on the reflections most just fake it with Spec ang gloss including studios but i think the reflection adds a little something.. besides rendertime of course ;)

All the winking faces are almost creepy. lol :)

The good part about doing things for yourself is render time is not such a big deal. Just start it up and go watch a movie.
