Preparing for Departure by vmulligan Preparing for Departure by vmulligan
This was created for the CGSociety's "NVArt: Accelerate" competition. The image is pretty straightforward: a spacecraft preparing to depart a space station. The viewer can fill in the story for himself or herself.

I modelled this in Wings 3D 1.0.1, with detail added with ZBrush 3.5 R3. UV layout was done in Roadkill 1.1. Textures were created with ZBrush, DarkTree Textures 2.51, and Photoshop CS3. I set up the scene and rendered with SoftImage XSI 6.5 and mental ray, then retouched the image with Photoshop.

Oh. Have you ever played Homeworld 2? It's a massive hyperspace gate network.

Ah, gotcha. I played the original Homeworld a bit, but it's been some time since I've played a computer game. I just don't have time these days :( .
