Roughly based on a short scene from the intro of Star Trek: Enterprise. It shows an X-33 shuttle (concept) departing from a future ISS (which I've decided to make part of a United Earth) in Earth orbit.
COMPOSITION: This is for the most part rendered in a single scene (in Lightwave) with very little post work in PS. The only postwork parts are some blending and color adjustments, as well as the shuttle exhaust and the residue from the severed umbilical. I've also decided to add some lights in post work, to illuminate the station's logos.
Everything else is setup in a single scene with about 10 different light sources (some negative values, to create darker shadows). I've modified some of the Earth textures and create a stronger bump mapping, I've also added the umbilical to the ISS model (just a spline with a rail extruded disc and a basic texture) and replaced the logos on the modules.
MESHES:Earth by Fabio Passaro (modified by me), ISS by Jason Webster (modified by me) & X-33 Shuttle by Kenny Mitchell.
Very nice art! Lovely "shape" to the flight vehicle. [Seemingly, has a lot of "gravity!" Meaning, a lot of punch, velocity, and speed designed for the craft!] The clouds are a nice addition, creating a photographic-look to the work! Very modernistic, too! Enormous impact and understating. And the colors soft and well blended to give a "complete look," in appearance! All of the work's "aspects" seem to fit well! Super techniques! ".. A story is in the telling" with this art! Waxes "quality!"
