Skirmish in the Elbow of Bootes by Rekkert
Skirmish in the Elbow of Bootes
The backstory for this one comes from the Valley Forge article on the Starfleet Museum:
"Valley Forge ships were also involved in numerous "police actions." In 2256, USS Diana (NCC-1470), USS Boxer (NCC-1498), and USS Dolphin (NCC-1504) spent eight months escorting convoys and hunting down Orion pirates that had been preying upon interstellar commerce near the Elbow of Böotes. The quick, maneuverable ships of the Valley Forge class were better suited for these types of missions than were Lancasters, which had been designed to engage other capital ships."

Well, this is a very old image, from July of 2012. I don't even have the original 3DS file anymore. I never quite like how it turned out so I didn't upload it.
I was searching through my old files when I found it, and I said "what the hell, let's upload it anyway". :P I've made a few adjustments in Photoshop to make it more passable, but it's still a "meh" for me.

This took far longer than it should to complete, but that's probably my own fault, my pipeline for doing renders is a mess, and I found that I can't work on this kind of renders in several small periods of time, I must sit down and spend a loooong time with each. Anyway, something I hope I'll be able to correct in the future.

Edit: well, this is embarrassing, I forgot to enable the texture maps for the ship's hull before doing the render, so here's the proper version. I've also changed that awful planet with a stock image by NASA, I couldn't let it be as it was. :P
So, I've been super busy with my job and my studies, so not a lot of time left for my hobbies. Worst of all, my mother had a kidney transplant last month, so I suddenly found myself living on my own and having to go to the hospital to take some care of her, and after that I had to take care of her at home. She is doing fine now, luckily.

Anyway, it's funny how I always end up writing this journal entries to excuse myself for not posting as much stuff as I would want to. I have lots of stuff planned, new renders with my old models, new models, new logos, new everything. Of course, I probably won't be able to do half the stuff I want, and end up writing another journal like this in a couple of months. =P

Let's hope not! :D

My love for a certain science fiction franchise and the ships that appear in it had motivated my imagination since I can remember being alive. That love eventually leaded me to design my own ships and bring them to life in my art, as well as trying to live by the message of peace and understanding that TV show promoted so long ago.
