    Looks really good so far. Nice detailing. I think you should include some ref. pics though. Just so we can make better comments. Plus it took me a minute to figure out what you were modelling too.

    By the way.. your ROTS DVD covers link in your signature doesn't work. Just curious.

    Thanks Zoo I'll scan some in from the art of book...they're what i'm using mostly....

    oh and about the covers I haven't checked that link in ages.....but as a funny side story i found a thread yesterday on comingsoon.net that went on for several pages with people debating the legitimacy of my covers...alot of people thought they were the real deal...lol

    Thanks Nick Hopefully I'll be doing a bit more on it today, I was surprised with how much I got done in one day as it was...lol..I think I worked on it for about 6 hours.

    Thanks L_M

    Excellent again. =D=

    SO.... where is the link, pics, etc. of these covers you made?

    You see that link at TFN last week about the custom home-made laser etched aluminum dvd case cover for the prequels? It was really nice but pricey $$ ]-}

    lol thanks outrider...what are your terms?...lol...[face_mischief]

    might be some more later

    EDIT: I come bearing refs....not the ones i was going to give you...cos they don't really show the set that well so I capped the DVD

    pillars, beam & floor section

    Whole corridor section

    The thing I thinks handy is that the model is completely modular... [face_peace]

    I had to edit my and your post to get the links to work. For everyones info just type your url and it'll work automatically. The "LINK" button in the forum is crap and actually hides the url.

    You've posted so much since then I thought I'd put the DVD covers link here again..
    http://www.theforce.net/latestnews/story/Prequel_DVD_Collector_Case_96097.asp

    How long is say that last render taking?

    Boy... it was really dark in that hallway in the movie. It'd be a shame to not see all that detail. I don't think you should light it so dark. Maybe they had it that way just b/c the ship was pretty empty. They were shooting for this creepy, quiet, dark and abandoned feel to the ship.

    Very excellent work. However, on your pillars, it seems they are a bit low rez geometry wise. I can see the polygon edges. Same for the floor tiles.
