No updates for a while, but there are some new one to go in!
I recently bought a Russian Soyuz capsule mesh on TurboSquid. The textures didn’t really come in at all, (not unusual in my experience), but it was fairly straightforward to apply new ones, as surfaces were sensibly named. I was also really pleased to see that the orange seams were done with geometry!
Here are a couple of new renders, where I composited the mesh over Earth, using NASA photos taken from the ISS.
As usual, all of this is done in Lightwave 3D.
I think this one is my favourite, the Earth looks nicer, and having it point up gives the impression it is going somewhere.
I like the relief on the clouds, but I don’t think this image works as well overall.
