Birds Of Prey by S3BR4 Birds Of Prey by S3BR4
I really have no excuse for this deviation, it's a result of my all out sci-fi geekness ^^; So I watched 'Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow' and I figured I really wanted to make something in that style. I actually fogot about it till I did get a nice 3 shot panorama of a bautiful sky and my geek inside remebered my previous idea. So yeah, I just assembled the panorama, got some stock pictures of planes from sxc.hu and went for it. Of course I still needed the enemy planes, wich I did model and render in Bleder 2.41. Took me ages to learn how to model in Blender (Last time I did any 3D was back in the days when Half Life was just released :lol: ) Anyway I finally got my bird like flying wing thingies and just added them to the manip. Sounds simple took me ages though, and I'm still not happy with the enemy planes :shrug:

So please excuse this mindless result of utter geekness ^^;

Great work! Like you I'm a big fan of the movie, even though it wasn't a huge box office hit, which makes me like it even more. FYI the pre-production posters actually showed either a Mk I, II or V as Joe Sullivan's ride.

This is an amazing peice of artwork. It being a photomanip make it all the better too, as you don't often see photomanipulations with such a creative idea.

I think you did a great job with using Blender for those sci-fi aircraft. They remind me a lot of the Stargate movie ones, but that was probably what you were after. You've made it tell a great story too seeing as you have the other plane turning off because it got hit. We just know that the second sci-fi aircraft is going to finish it off.

Great work! :)
