So after posting a revised and colored version of the Ambassador Refit plan, I am left standing at a fork in the road and I would love to get some opinions from the masses.  I have taken up the duty of finishing what I intended to do months ago with regard to the Ambassador, but after colorizing the dorsal plan, I relaized just how much work is involved.  Since I work in CADD all the time to produce plans, the methods for output is a bit of trickery, meaning that I render the views in a way that they come out smooth and clearer at high resolution, instead of the normal output to printers, so in essence, there aren't any "jaggies".  Anywho, after a render is completed (all 1.2gb of it), I export the image to Photoshop for the coloring, but it's a lot of coloring.  I cannot create the colored shapes in CADD as they will not render in color the way I want.  With that said, there is a LOT of time taken to color and while I had requested input from a friend about it, he indicated that he liked the old colored versions I once did (the blue background with white linework), which I am still toying with the idea again, but I also like the plain white background with black linework.

Now, i ask you all, what do you think looks better?  If anyone has any further input, please feel free to post.

Well, what's to say. I have a passion for art, in all of it's forms but my skills draw me more towards the technical side of it all. My interests from a creative standpoint are derived from my geeky Star Trek days and with the advent of technology, it has made it even easier for me to express my passions in a more creative way. Aside from creating drawings, I love flying. Although I am not a certified pilot (not yet, at least), I fly occasionally through flight sim and with that I can take the occasional snap and clean it up nicely for display in my portfolio. One day I'll get into the pilot's seat, but I'm in no hurry. :)

A few days from today, the history books show an entry.  An entry of mystery, and portent, as the great powers came down upon the Earth, and, in accordance with the wishes of the mighty King Kong, granted the world a boon.  That boon was you.  And lo, let it be said to all that you are to be wished a Happy Birthday upon that day, with the most excellent and amazing of cakes to partake in! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too

History records that, just days from now, a tremendous upheaval took place as the ground cracked and broke apart, tornadoes spun counter to their nature, and even Godzilla bowed as you appeared upon the Earth to grace us with your art. And so it is wished upon you to have a Happy Birthday on that day....and a most excellent cake. :D (Big Grin)  Have your cake and eat it too
