Finaly finished! this piece of work first started when i decided my room needed a decent poster and id also find out how good the quality of DAprints stuff really is.
its taken me roughlt 20 hours or so to complete this and im glad its all done and dusted.
The droid is in a repair facility and more or less been given a full service, and he really needs it after years of wear and tear its metalic body has finaly sucome to the effects of the acidic atmosphere that surround the world in which he functions, even the factory itself is slowly deteriating, only a matter of time till the place falls apart.

right on to the good stuff......DETAIL!!!

Detail 1 [link]

Detail 2 [link]

Deatil 3 [link]

Detail 4 [link]

i hope you guys like this one, now off to DAP for my poster:) (Smile)

Very nice work.

dell Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2003
Well done, I really like the sense of darkness and mood that is protrayed in this picture. I attribute it all to your CG skills and color selection. Your control or rather mastery over shadows and light sources is eveident here as well.
