The Bradbury! I've never forgotten seeing that one at the ASDB! I'm glad someone gave it an updated render!

Hehe, yeah. I think I may have to update this one again though. It's a little bland...

Well, for what it's worth, I think it looks great. Keep up the great work!

I've been working on an updated version all evening; based on the original scene file. If you like this version, I'm sure you'll like the new one once it's complete. Kind of also a challenge to myself; hard to judge your own skill improvement sometimes...

Hahaha! Well, an artist is always their own worst critic. ;) I'm looking forward to seeing the new one!

You're right about that! A piece is never finished. Everytime I look through my gallery, or an image is getting brought back to my attention via the message feed, I'm looking at it wondering what I was thinking when I slapped that together... ;) :shrug:

The re-work (so far) will feature one different ship (no worries, the Bradbury is safe!), and I'm trying to do most in the native render without (or with little) post-process. I can only work on it during my lunch breaks and in the evenings, but hopefully I'll have it done by the week-end.

The funny thing is that every time I glance at this picture I think your watermark is DS9. Which also seems to work.

I wouldn't mind seeing these babies in a new Stark Trek TV series.

I know the design may not be canon, but the Bradbury is a canon ship, mentioned in Menage a trois (if I remember right)

Awesome image :D

You are right, the ship is mentioned, however, it is not known what the design looked like. But then it could also be a class/design thing. There used to be a Constitution class "Intrepid" and then there is the Intrepid class to which also Voyager belonged.

And thanks.
