My final submission for the contest. Just added some last tweaks. Again roughly modeled in zbrush and overpainted with photoshop in the action view. Probably my fav from my submissions. Could fit best into the eve universe i think.
the rough ship model was done with zbrush and the picture is the overpainted ship done with photoshop. the background is a larger picture i'm working on right now. well... from time to time. not sure when it's done. just thought it would make a nice background. rendered with vue und postworked with photoshop too.
i did not have had an exact plan in mind when i started to play around with it. actually i was just fooling around with newly learned things in zbrush. it's a great tool for people like me i guess. i'm a total fail when it comes to modelling in maya 3dsmax etc etc. zbrush makes the process feel more organic. even if it may not be intended for spacecraft modelling the ship itself, incl the postwork, took me surely 5-7hrs.
