Thank you very much to everyone for all the s and the interest in this piece!
I usually make it a point to thank everyone individually, because I never take interest in my work - by anyone - for granted, but in this case it's just too much! Every single comment and is truly appreciated though! It means a lot.
Based on a scene from Star Wars - Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back; plus a little artistic freedom!
The Millenium Falcon and Luke Skywalker in his X-Wing are escaping from the Rebel base on Hoth during an attack by Imperial Forces.
COMPOSITION: Terrain composed, textured and rendered in Bryce 7.1 Pro. My work. Remaining scene setup and render in Lightwave with final composition (including all FX) in Photoshop.
MESHES:Millenium Falcon by Andy Crook (with texture modifications by me) & X-Wing Fighter by Don Showalter.

Thank you very much to *TreeClimber for the great pointers during WIP stage!
This is a nice piece the individually textured panels on the falcon give it a realistic look. The attention to detail is amazing. I would use a bit more color in the engine effects but it looks great even without that. Overall I would have to say this piece is really good and you should be proud of it.
I've played around with a lot of differen hues, but overall I'm not a fan of overly vibrant looking colors, because to me they can start looking unrealistic pretty quick. Maybe I will have another play eventually!
haha it must be the innate perception of an artist. it is said that the golden ratio is perceived as beautiful and as artist we do pursue this in whatever shape or form. got a little romantic there haha
