Over Vue Water

Water is usually hit or miss with Vue. But it looks good enough in this render, if you don't look too close at it.

Some Azun

My Free Trader Hexagon model showed up in this Vue Infinite render. So this image will probably appear in the CG Spaceships Community on Google+.

Mapped Asteroids

Thought I'd post something here about my map viewer for Traveller subsector maps. CG has hit the app now.  By that, I mean the planets are not just colored dots anymore. I used Vue Infinite to render various worlds that I could place in the hexes. This morning, I added asteroids to the rendered choices.

Cloud Disturbance

Looking at cutting grooves into clouds, to see what sticks. Stretching and pulling fractal terrains that are made of cloud textures.

The same ship as before. It took awhile to find my Easter Island monoliths. They were on an old drive from nine years ago. I used 3D-Coat to give them a new paint job.

It's hard to tell, but the planet in the background is my Earth model. So this must be the Moon here.
