20090811 (14) – What with the multiple reworks of earlier bits of the story and my frequent, flagrant use of the model in the second edition… it’s hard to believe that these were the very first production renders of the Sabrosa.

Aaah… memories.

That said, this was a straight scale-and-crop, with the Sabrosa scaled down a bit in panel four to fit the space.

20090813 – Replaced 3 and 4 with fresh renders. The switch from scanline to mental ray resulted in a bit of a mismatch, on this page and the next – as such the renders aren’t just plopped in as they would have been if I were making adjustments to a fresh scene – there’s some photoshop involved. Oh, and the perspective in panel four is different – there’s no file for that shot for some reason… or if there is, it’s buried somewhere else in the project directory tree.

20090908 (16) – Captioned.

Mastering notes, 2016.12.07 – Minor caption adjustments.
