After the fun I had at Wonderfest Hobby Expo last weekend, in Louisville, KY, I couldn't resist looking a little bit into the future. These are all digital models I've built over the years - Star Trek-related, of course - and I figure by 2263, I might actually be able to get them all built in plastic!
Obviously, this is in the suite, before bringing the models down to the contest room ...
This one was a lot of work - I started out in Poser Pro 11, then switched back to Poser Pro 2014, and had a real problem with the texture maps - no matter what I tried, it blurred them all a bit; I don't know if it was because I just overloaded the machine with all the models and maps, indirect lighting and reflections, or whether I missed a major setting or what - this is the first time I've really had this be an unsolveable problem. So - I resampled the image smaller for the final pic!
