Hiigaran Battlecruiser by NiemeyerStudios Hiigaran Battlecruiser by NiemeyerStudios
This is a Hiigaran Battlecruiser returning home from a long patrol on the outer reaches of the Hiigaran territories.

The model comes from one of my favorite games, Homeworld 2 [link] The model was originally created by Relic/Serria Entertainment and converted to Lightwave by Fabio [link] I used this scene to play with lighting and engine glow. If anyone has any comments they would be welcome. I do know that it is a little dark, but thats the way I wanted it.

I really like it. I like all things Homeworld. :) I don't suppose you have done any others? I don't think the stars are too numerous or bright, but you might consider throwing in some lightly glowing stellar dust - just to add a little interest to the background (even tho' the ship is the subject).

I had :+fav:'d this, btw.

For those of you who are interested in the models from Homeworld you can get them here: [link] You do have to be a member to download anything from that site, but its free. Also be forewarned, the zip files are big, uncompressed the files take up about 250mb and they will only work in Lightwave 7.x
