Kirk: "All I ask is a tall ship, and a star to steer by." McCoy: "Melville..." Spock: "...John Maysfield." McCoy: "Are you sure about that?" Spock: "I am well-versed in the classics, Doctor." McCoy: "Then how come you don't know "Row, Row, Row Your Boat?"
Okay, so: You find/make a decent background on which you could iagine a nifts starship. You load the mesh in Max, add the background. You twist and turn the ship so it stands in the needed angle. You add one or more lights of specific colours and light types, depending on the effects you want to achieve. You press Render and save the image. You open the image in Photoshop, play aroudn with brightness/contrast, colour balance, etc. Finally, you add some noise in the image, it makes it less sterile. That's all.
Ok...one of these days, we have to connect somehow so you can explain that in better detail...I SO want to learn how to do those.
And I have thought of something I'd like you to do...not sure if it's too complicated or not...BUT...I was watching an episode of Enterprise, Atazi Prime. The one when the Xindi attack Enterprise and completely rip her a new one. See if you can do a render of the badly damaged NX-01. If you can't do that one, let me know, I've got another idea.
FMA almost got it right *sings* "Fly me to the moon Let me play among the stars Let me see what spring is like On Jupiter and Mars In other words Hold my hand In other words Baby kiss me Fill my heart with song And let me sing forever more You are all I long for All I worship and adore In other words Please be true In other words I love you *trumpet solo* Fill my heart with song Let me sing forever more You are all I long for All I worship and adore In other words Please be true In other words In other words I love.. You" Frank Sinatra = <3 Enterprise = <3 Frank Sinatra = Enterprise?!?
