    Nah, that's just your dirty mind. :shifty:

    Thanks for the nice words. :)

    Thank you! Yeah, that's exactly what I was going for. A picture at which you could stare and discover little gags and references. I only wish I could have worked more into it.

    You know, you are right. I was going off my memory, but looking at pictures now, Chester's definitely not orange like Spot. I made it grey now and tried to hint at the white underbelly and nose.

    I really like the little details. Kira’s mug, the orb box, Garak’s measuring tape, and Sisko’s baseball.

    Probably an old hat for many here, but I just learned of the existence of a free little program called MagicaVoxel. It's a voxel (3D pixel) editor with a neat rendering engine and it seems pretty easy to learn. For a first try the results look kind of nice …

    EDIT: And another angle …

    That looks like quite a fun and easy (relatively) program to play around with. I hope you'll show us more of your models when/if you continue using it? (I'm kind of tempted to have a go, but all the technical installation stuff has put me off - I'm gazing at my nice, friendly pencil crayons as I type this :lol:)

    Gladly. This is just too much fun. I'm already thinking abouth a ton of other stuff I'd like to model.

    On OS X the installation was really a non-issue. Not sure how it compares to setting it up under Windows, though. The program itself seems super easy to me. And I say that as someone with no background in 3D modeling, only what I know about 2D pixel images in Photoshop.

    Here's my version of the Tricorder …
