The build is good, but with the photo editing, it turns into something swooping out of a Sci-fi battle into our world. Spectacular job!

Quoting Peter Mowry Hey Joseph again great job!!! I was hoping you could maybe shed some light on me (artist to artist). Whats the best way you can get that motion blur? I was looking at your site and you really seem to master the effect. I have GIMP on my computer. Is there any tricks you are willing to help me out in cuz this is great work!!! Not joking. Again keep it up. Thanks for any help.
Sure, well my brother is the real photographic genius, but I can give you an idea of what we did for the pic. The main picture actually had both models in the exact pose they are in on stands, the comet was in the background and we used a macro lens with a very narrow DOF and focused on the front ship. Then used various brush and motion tools in photoshop cs and some knoll light factory effects to add the lighting and some shadows. Gimp is a great program, and alot of what you can do in photoshop can be done with it. The finished product (the one main photo) took about 3 hours from start to finish, and thats not even touching on the build time.

No DQ, that is a tad harsh and we think a big zero on such a great build is punishment enough. (Really is a kick A build!)

Speaking as a competitor, this is not an MOC I want to see. But as an MOCist, this is awesome, especially the white ship.

Once again another fine creation. I also am diggin your photoshop work. If your bored, check mine out. I took a q (que?) from you, though I got CS4 and I can't figure much out. I'm used of the older version. Where's my lense flair now???? Anyways...I like this ship.
