Commission piece for a sci-fi novel cover.

Foreground spacecraft were modeled & composed in Google Sketchup 7; color and lighting effects are all Photoshop CS3.

Sketchup was pretty good for getting a nice quick design going + getting the local colors of the object figured out.

...but then Sketchup is hopelessly lacking in lighting and texture features, which meant doing a crap-ton of Lasso Tool in Photoshop. Definitely sticking to Maya for my bigger projects down the line.
