Nicely done, I always liked this ship from the first time I saw it in the Alien module.

Cool picture!

How do you do the shaded line drawing look of the ship? Is it just a matter of rendering both wire frame and shaded?

Yeah, pretty much. The colour image is a render and the line image is the raw export from Sketchup. That's a dwg file then converted to illustrator ai file and finally open both in Photoshop.
The line image is a layer over the colour image, you have to scale and move it to match up.

Thanks for the enlightenment. I may do some renders too, time permitting.

It takes three software packages to make that image? Wow.

Thanks for sharing your process, Ian. The results are of course stupendous! Looking forward to more.

Yeah, pretty much. Although the illustrator bit is quick. Sometimes I do a few edits though, line thickness, missing lines, wrong lines or other bits I fix.
The awkward bit is fitting the line image over the colour image (or shadow image)
