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!
Finally, my entry to the EVE Online competition is submitted (at last minute as always!).
My starship, named Daedalus, was based off of the Merlin class frigate (for those of you that are familiar with EVE) and was an attempt follow the design sensibilities already found throughout the Caldari Navy. On top of this I attempted to give it an iconic design, something that would fit its title as a navy flagship.
I'll include the written description from the piece here (due to its small font on the actual work):
Originally conceived as a flagship vessel, the Daedalus was intended to lead auxiliary attack groups against the numerous Gurista incursions along the Eastern Rim; its imposing and recognisable visage intended to intimidate the comparatively smaller pirate navy. After a large number of successful engagements, the Daedalus-class battlecruiser, having proved its worth, was transferred to the much larger primary fleets, filling a fast-attack turret based offense role.
By YC106 however, the Daedalus had fallen out of use, in part due to the surge in production of the Ferox and Drake class battlecruisers. Their upgraded missile systems and tank-based role in battle, by this point, were favoured over the offensively capable but defensively weak Daedalus. In time it was almost completely absent from the Caldari Navy, with the few remaining vessels left fulfilling political roles as private, diplomatic transports.
After the Gurista involvement with the Innovaatio Varustukset Corporation in YC109 and the resulting kidnapping of one of the coporation scientists, it was recognised that Nugoeihuvi's Internal Security division were deploying a number of Daedalus-class vessels in their search for the missing scientist and his pirate captors.
Recognised by the Caldari Navy for its high-risk, high reward combat effectiveness, this security operation signalled the return of the Daedalus to active fleet status.
The ship was designed in Google Sketchup, given a simple lighting render and then textured in Photoshop. All space work and graphics were also designed in Photoshop.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my entry and good luck to all who entered.
This moon has been infected... ...in fact - it is infected for millenia. These creatures need a lot of time to evolve - they are pretty harmless (except the fact they make their nests from moons and planets that have molten core). Their eggs orbit around the nest (moon/planet) for really long time until they hatch. They probably don't need air or any other known elements to survive. All we know is that they prefer planets/moons closer to stars and need a lot of heat/energy to give birth to the young ones.
//Inspired by Farscape series. Living Leviathan ships gave me this idea.
Edit: Added some details here and there, changed colors here and there. Nothing dramatic.
