A birthday present to myself...

This is the first image taken of my new ship.. Titan. Its approximately 30 km long in maya space. I plan on adding a load of tiny detail so that its compatible with extreme close ups... and additionally making both half's non symmetrical. I came across a render farm site that lets you render however much you want for a decent amount of coin a month, so once this baby is all built ( shes about 25% there now) im going to be animating the crap outta this ship. There service can produce about 300% more frames than my crappy home pc, so il have a pretty wide birth to render huge scenes with particles and as many lights as this ship can handle. Currently my computer gets buggy when lights are employed.. so i say let the farm handle it.

Here's a render, and the maya 4 view.

My last render of this ship.

Finally got my ship to a point i liked it. Over 2 million polygons and rendered in fryrender. I used photoshop over the render with some random samples of clouds painted together, then processed the image in magic bullet looks. Finally back into photoshop to add the lens flares and some noise. Ive included the ambient occlusion pass as well to illustrate the detail.

The render straight out of fry.
