Preparing for Departure

By vmulligan
This was created for the CGSociety's "NVArt: Accelerate" competition. The image is pretty straightforward: a spacecraft preparing to depart a space station. The viewer can fill in the story for himself or herself.

I modelled this in Wings 3D 1.0.1, with detail added with ZBrush 3.5 R3. UV layout was done in Roadkill 1.1. Textures were created with ZBrush, DarkTree Textures 2.51, and Photoshop CS3. I set up the scene and rendered with SoftImage XSI 6.5 and mental ray, then retouched the image with Photoshop.
