Utilizing sturdy but lightweight construction materials and sacrificing some cargo space, these dedicated exploration vessels are able to reach speeds greater than those of a cruiser while withstanding heavy fire - factors which make them ideal for zipping through dangerous wormholes."
My latest work for the contest "Bring Vour Vision to Life": "Battle over 51" based on StarGate Atlantis (5.20 "Enemy to the gate"). The story; Wraith-Darts (the blackone with the red drive) attack the Earth and the F-302 (the grey fighters) defend it... - Modells, Lighting, Rendering: Cinema 4d - Background, Postwork (weaponfire...), Composing, Presentation: Adobe Photoshop - Total worktime (without the modells) 7 hours because it was very difficult to find a nice arrangement and to set it in the right light. Criticism and comments are very wellcome!
Well, here is my entry... I want to do another one but time is really short :/ My personal deadline is 4th October, can't work on anything after that. Wanted to do thumb No 6 (this is No 16 btw, I reversed front and back of the ship in the end)
My final submission for the contest. Just added some last tweaks. Again roughly modeled in zbrush and overpainted with photoshop in the action view. Probably my fav from my submissions. Could fit best into the eve universe i think.

My idea was to create something that looked less formal and was more along the lines of something rugged for working undercover assignments in squalid neighborhoods, frontier towns, and the criminal underworld - in which operatives would regularly mingle with bandits, smugglers, gamblers, prostitutes and such.
It is also readily customizable with the wearer's choice of insignia/armor/weapon accessories/etc.
You've met the girl of your dreams. It wasn't just a fling. Things are going well. You talk about living together. Then she wants you to meet her folks and before you know it, you are on the other side of the galaxy...
