A bit more subtle than the previous edition, to be sure – but the previous edition was also a drop into Broad Daylight, whereas here it’s pre-dawn… so something a little less BLAM! is called for.
The first version of the page was the first appearance of the textured version of the ship – up to this point the ship (the first first time around, not the second first time around) was either flat gray or badly “textured” in photoshop, so a nice big money shot was something I wanted. A nice big FUCK YEAH! to celebrate my efforts.
This time around it’s Just Another Render. Woo!
