Well I saw this fantastic picture done by evil genius 180 at his blog. He used a version of Apophosis to do it with so I thought I’d give it a try.
So I came up with three new images.
And the Calender pages.
“Anyway, nothing can beat good ol’ American know-how
and I was giving this broad the stars and stripes forever.”
Heavy Metal ****
I’ve gone back to the Ptolemy. The first pic shows the beginning of the connection point at the back of the primary container.
“What the hell is the Major trying to do?”
The second pic is just to show how it looks with another container attached.
The third pic shows what will become the control or monitoring room. The windows textures are temp for now. I still have to add the various tractor beams and force fields that hold the cargo in place.
The fourth pic shows how it looks from the inside.
And the fifth pic shows another type of cargo container that fits on the inside.
Ghost In The Shell: Solid State Society **
For a long time now I’ve put all my images, including my wips onto DVD as a slideshow. Including music and titles. Right now I have it split up into 2 DVDs. One for finished images and another for wip images. I thought I’d give a rundown of what thse DVDs consist of.

Many of the Star Trek images include all the layers I used to do the final composite in Photoshop. So it looks like the the image is being built as you watch it.
“It’s no use to blame the looking glass if your face is askew.”
Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence****
I’ve added more details and what I’m guessing are windows. At least based on my references that’s what they look like to me. 🙂 The last picture is done without any lights. I don’t see haveing a lot more to do. Just a few more details and some chamfered edges.

Ghost In The Shell ****
Work on the Tholian ship is moving along at a nice clip. So far I’m happy with most of it. The red and blue textures are temp but close to what I do want.
“Next time you present me with one of your little sluts,
mother dear I’ll squash you like a bug.”
Fire & Ice ****
Ok. More Tholians. I’m enjoying working on this ship. It is actually a more complicated design than I had thought it was.
“Hop inside my mouth if you want to live.”
Finding Nemo ****
I want something for my ships to shoot at so I went back and did a little work on a Tholian ship I’ve started. I reworked the part that is between the three bits that stick out. I also added an obvious web spinner on this one. This ship comes in at about 15m long. I plan on doing a larger cruiser type ship aswell. The last two pics are to show scale.
“What do you suggest I do Dr. ask them to play nice.”
Final Fantasy: The Spirts Within ***
Work on the Archer has stalled a little until I think of what I want to do with it so I’ve gone back to the U.S.S. Ptolemy.
I decided that the cargo container should open from below. In the pic I show it with warp engines but it can also be fitted with different modules to carry many other thing. I thought hinges for the doors might be a good idea so I added those and some detail to the inner doors. I’m thinking about some kind of control room or monitor room inside the container also. I angled the warp engines a bit more to move them farther from the container and I also moved them up a little.
“You spend too long on the toilet.”
Cowboy Bebop ***
Was at the store the other day and I saw they had the new Hallmark ornaments display up. (For fuck’s sake it’s not even Holloween yet and they’ve started on the Christmas shit already)Well I saw this little masterpiece and even though I don’t celabrate Christmas I couldn’t pass this up. It’s got lights and sound. I also found out that the new Star Trek Ornament is the Klingon Cruiser from TMP. I’ll have to get that too. 🙂
“Don’t ever piss her off again. As far as we know she’s
the only remaining one.”
