Space Shuttle Atlantis
This was a model for a challenge over at CGSociety.
I've always been a space geek, and doing a Nasa themed challenge was right up my alley.
I wanted to make a nice high fidelity model that would hold up at close range, so I spent a lot of creating all the little panels and details on the ship. Getting them in the right place over curved surfaces was the most challenging part.
Took about a month of my spare time from beginning to end. Modeled in 3DS Max, rendered in VRay and comped in Photoshop.
