Looks pretty good, is that his ship that looks like a spot light? You might turn down the bump on the building some, I don't think stucco is that grainy.

thx man, the bumb is correct, like i said its my backyard, took the textures with my digicam and adjusted them pretty close to what they really are. i guess its just finnish architecture, which is quite extraordinary anyway, lol

i have to say, i liked the other pic better. The blue gave it a sort of scary night feel. You should also try putting a tiny bit of light on his face

hi Murc XIII
its quite easy to do that in photoshop. i used a bg layer which is just dark sky with stars. one layer with blending mode to lighten on top of that. render clouds with colours, i think ive set to plain black and white. then i used one big brush with hardness i think sth like 50% and opacity quite low, took the dodge tool and dodged it a little on the left side, where the moon is suposed to be (to bring more atmosphere). i got this just through experimenting, so this might not work as well with every scene. just experiment yourself, its fun, lol

what is that red thing in the background?
wouldn´t like to meet that fellower, he looks evil :eek:

it is supposed to be a laser target sight. i did it in a very unconventional way. not with lights at all. i should try making lasers with lights in max. there is a good tutorial on the web about that, but i stumbled on it after i already finished this one.
and yes, he's supposed to be 1 evil chap.
thx for posting

Nice work but I think there should be a little more lighting on him form the ship.

yes ure right. some light kicker or back light would have been needed. i'll xperiment with it. thx
