New CGI Tholian Model

My new Tholian Webspinner based on photo references.

Modelled and rendered in Strata Design 3D

One of my favorite things about this particular ship is the way the lighting of the original model gave it an almost crystalline appearance. I tried to do something similar here.







Finally, here is a familiar scene using the new Webspinners with my TOS-E model.

Enjoy!

Great Tholian very TOS.

I like this design much more than the detailed Enterprise version.

Awesome.

How did you do the energy grid?

Re: New CGI Tholian Model

The energy grid is a cube, stood on one point. Onto this I projected each face as a glowing gold texture masked by a stencil map. This makes the whole structure invisible, except for the areas the stencils allow to show. Each stencil is different with the web only as complete as the position of the webspinner on that face. The stencils were also given the irregular energy pulse look.

The shot was rendered twice. Once with all elements present, once with no star background and the Enterprise and the webspinners in non-reflective black. This second render was brought into Photoshop as a separate layer and blurred to give an additional glow effect.
