Little Lost Ship by rushedart Little Lost Ship by rushedart
Ok another one using some old models. This one is related to that series of Balmung images I was suppose to do over time, but never did. oops.
Well looking at these ships I am itching to rebuild the poor Balmung. She is one of my first completed models. I think it dates all the way back to 2006. And boy does she show it.

I might mess with this a bit more and produce a v2 mostly because the pant effects could be worked a bit more. I just do not feel like painting anymore and well it is LATE and this image has already been delayed enough already.

so is the balmung an early 23rd century ship? and is that version of the Constitution the base version or a refit of this universe's Constitution class

3ds max with Mental Ray (all in the app no ext filters or plugs) then I composite in Photoshop and sometimes After Effects for some filters. Sometimes I use a paint app called Paint Tool SAI, this image I used it to paint in the damage and some of the smoke. Only filter I used in the image that is not packaged as default in PS is the main flare and that is a red giant filter. (you can probably find better pre-rendered flares online though)

So, Which Ship is lost? Because by the end of VOG they are both pretty out of date.

VOY has nothing to do with this image. The Balmung is the one that is out of it's timeframe.

I always liked the Balmung, a mix of Ambassador and Excelsior the lost gap, she sure looks great.

Looks great. Is she a Luna Class? She really gives off a Luna style. Really like it, can't wait to see what you end up with after you work on her a bit.

Dunno which ship your refering to the Luna class I know is the USS Titan and is from a completely different era. The Balmung (if this is the one your asking about) predates the Ambassador class by a few decades. I forgot what class name I gave it, It was something Norse though, Branstock or Volsung class. Someone somewhere probably has all the rubbish history I gave this thing. I had specific dates and all of that but lost the doc files somewhere over the years.

Oh, yeah, was just saying it looked like a Luna is all.
