    Looks great.. I like the semi hidden alien hieroglyphics and the texture on the edges of the corrosion on the artifact.

    Thanks for the comments everyone!
    Keep em coming!

    Here is a change to the GDI and the dirt diffusion. Some info...all ZBrush of course. Tons of simplebrush work. No textures really. Just a bunch of painting. Articact has about 3 or 4 materials in it and 2 for the dirt. The alien text was an afterthought, made possible by a custom stencil.One light.

    Excellent image! Looks great as is, but I know you plan take it even further. Love the distressed look of the space alien relick.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Here is a second set. Still trying to find that render.
    To Mentat, Thanks for showing us all that cool plant script. This grass is a modification to that process.

    Looking really good! X-Files, anyone?

    121? Well, the picture is more or less fully functional as it is. Maybe the metal looks a wee bit plasticky now.. perhaps some reflections on the 'clean' parts could help? (unless it already has them )
