Drex Files is gone!
 
If you never saw Doug Drexler's Wordpress blog, you were missing out on a great resource of ship renders, concept art, and behind-the-scenes info. Unfortunately, it's now gone. Read about it here:
http://startrekauction.blogspot.com/...iles-blog.html
http://wrathofdhanprops.blogspot.com...g-is-gone.html

It seems that some other VFX artists took issue with him putting "Drex Files" on all the images, and felt he was taking credit for them. I can understand that to a point, but he was also going out of his way in the article text to say who did all the work for each design/render.

Even though Doug hadn't updated it recently, I hope it comes back in some form. I'd hate to lose access to all those amazing images!

That sucks!!

The Drexfiles has been such a great resource over the past years. I was wondering why Doug quit updating it. Hopefully it will come back.

He's considering how to address the concerns of his colleagues and possibly resume the Blog. I and many others sure hope that happens!

This just sucks. I love his blog and he has great reference material. This just sucks. I hope that he brings it back. He is a great artist and always gives credit where credit is do. This just sucks! :evil: :evil:

Agreed. This was and is cause for sadness and dismay. Hopefully, it gets resolved and the blog restored quickly.

^He is a member here, though it's been a long time since he's posted. Maybe if we say his name we can summon him.

Drexler, Drexler, Drexler!

If Malakai isn't full of malarkey*, then I want Doug to know that his site was a favorite resource and glimpse behind the scenes of Star Trek for many.

I'm sorry folks gave you trouble, Doug!




*Sorry, Gep, that flowed together too well to ignore.

I wonder if CBS made him take it down?

I doubt it. If CBS had had words with Doug, we'd have known it far sooner than this.

And I doubt Doug would cover for them by passing the blame onto his colleagues. He's always struck me as the sort that would just come out and say so if CBS asked him to shut down.

Shame though. I loved all the behind the scens stuff he had on his blog.
