He is right, a few stars would be perfect to finish it.
Very nice looking and cool space station.

that's the most interesting background of all threads here

are those nebulae (i'm told nebulars is a spelling mistake on this mac...) part of it or did you get them there by other means?

Thanks guys, i really appreciate it
The background was just a Photoshop job. I don't think my computer is up to rendering the main scene again, was lucky it did the first time.

hmm, i noticed glows on some parts where it's not inside a model

how did you render it and keep the glow there? whenever i render something that has glow the actual glow is never saved and all i get is this bright line on the object that is meant to glow

or did you make it glow in photoshop?

Since i rendered it on a dark background it was fairly easy to just blend the stars into it without loosing the glow.
I probably could have used the alpha mask for that to but I'm still trying to work that out properly.

Interested to see the other final entries. At the moment for me its a toss up between Tweety and Dango.
