Actually, he's a super-villain and only posts here when the Justice League foils his latest plot to take over the world.

Actually, I heard he's a highly trained assassin and has to fly out of the country sometimes at a moment's notice to whack an evil dictator or two.

Re: Modified TOS Ent - Wallpapers
^Nope, just in hibernation! Vektor is a busy man and posts when he can.



Oh, that is good! But it seems that the project and thread he supposedly is working on now is dead too...hmm. I love this guy's work and want to see more!

Well, that depends on how you define "dead."

Trust me, there's been a lot of work going on behind the scenes.

Yeah.

The only way it would be dead is if Vektor killed it....with a sniper's rifle.......from 800 yards away.

Well, perhaps not dead, just not alot of activity at all. In your other thread you said that this Enterprise would be postponed until you finished the Grandeur. How is that coming? I love the Grandeur, but this Enterprise is so good and I want more widescreen wallpapers of it!!!

Re: Modified TOS Ent - Wallpapers

Grandeur is getting the vast majority of the attention right now and trust me, the next time you see it, the progress will be pretty dramatic.

I'm also working on Polaris for Dennis Bailey and may have more to show on that by the end of this weekend.

My Modified TOS Enterprise is further on the back burner than anything else but it, too, will have its due.

Re: Modified TOS Ent - Wallpapers

Great news! For a while I thought Tobias Richter was the best at Star Trek CG, but after I found yourself, I believe that your material is much more realistic. Many times I thought you had built an actual physical model for your shots. I am looking forward with great anticipation to seeing your next images.

Re: Modified TOS Ent - Wallpapers

Vektor's modeling of these kinds of ships is the best I've seen. The challenge for us is going to be getting the details of texture and lighting on Polaris up to his level after what's going to be a necessary format conversion from Max to LW.

There's nothing sleek or stylish about Church's Enterprise re-design. Quite the contrary. It's a misshapen turd that was squeezed from a constipated anus.
And yet, it seemed to get some pretty cool reactions from the audiences I saw it with. They made a movie, the movie was big, and a bunch of NON Star Trek fans loved the ship; and IMO that was the entire point of the movie, in terms of the ship..plot..casting.

The fact that TOS fans, or Trek fans, didn't like certain aspects of the movie, the ship being one of them, is a step in the right direction.

"But it was popular!"

That's such a great reason to consider something good! Truly... wait, why are you a Star Trek fan to begin with? Shouldn't you have run over to the much more popular Star Wars a long time ago? Or better yet, discard that nerdy scifi altogether?

I'm certain that when Galileo said Jupiter had moons, his entire reason for doing so was because he thought the people would herald him as that funky guy that gave Jupiter moons, as opposed to it being true.

I ask for V as he is often busy and I'm free ATM. Please can the Trekkie fan drama. Vektor asked politely to take it somewhere else out of his thread, and I'm totally in his corner on that.
