I'm having a lot of fun with this scoutship model.

These ships were modelled in 3ds max 2011, textured with Zbrush, Roadkill, Darktree, and Photoshop, and lit and rendered with Maya 2011 and mental ray. Background nebulae, planets, and stars were painted in Photoshop CS 5.1.

Nice design!  Are they headed for that planet before them?

Thanks!  I like to imagine that, at most, the first surveyors have been there.  Or perhaps it's completely unexplored.

Or someone sent unmanned probes for the preliminary look-over before sending these ships with their crews for a better, closer look.  Love the colors!

Love the intensity of the light you gave the star.

Woah I missed this one! Ships underway toward some bright star, just classic. Love the cool blue of the star's light on the ships with the warm stellar background. I also enjoyed seeing your design process for this ship design.

Good work! Could I use this for a prequel of "Don't Follow the Light?" ([link])?

Well, I'm trying not to have too many of my pics floating around out there at the moment. I'd rather not, if that's okay. Sorry.

It really looks like a Chris Foss illustration.

Thanks a lot! Someone else mentioned Foss, too. I like his work a lot, and I tend to be inspired by classic sci-fi art from the '60s and '70s.
