I think this is not how the engine arranged in space, Caster has the lever rotor adjust engine for landing, the position the front engine is hitting on the back engine. The correct arrangement in space is set the middle rotor to vertical position and point all 4 engine to the back.

Thanks Mike, glad you like this one. It's certainly an original design Alexander Axelsson did a bang up job on her. I love the variable angle engines gives me so many different poses to render her in.

FD3d has some really impressive meshes, all the ship lights rendered as well or is that post-work courtesy of you? I echo the sentient on the ambient dusty lighting/atmo you've made in this scene, excellent!

Thanks :)

I did add the lights in post, felt it need a little extra punch. They are simply painted on with a paintbrush set to Color Dodge mode.
I am working on rigging some ship lights in Lightwave.

Wow, cool colors (literally). I love the sense of "space dust". Nice to get another look at this model.

Thank you, I like the almost underwater feel to this one. Glad you like the pallette it was definitely a tip of the hat in your direction.

Are the Caliban Shoals from the game Homeworld? Either way, excellent picture.

You should really think about starting a career as an illustrator Graham! This looks quite amazing, soft where it should but still full of detail, the ambient is perfect and the volumetrics wonderful!! Great 3D artwork!!

Thanks Iti :).
Kind words, but I don't think I'll be good enough to make a living out of it.
