ETA-2 ACTIS

A 3D rendering of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi Interceptors from Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.

Executing this project was difficult for me because it was one of the first times I used Maya. That being said, I learned a lot and continue to learn from it. I am currently in the process of fixing those errors that I didn't know were errors or "no, no's" the first time around (edge flow, non-manifold geometry, proper UV's...you get it).

Layout

In the references, the ships and space station are paired with a planet that creates negative space within the composition. This alludes to its massive size but doesn't take away from the focal point of the ships.

Currently in the process of cleaning up the wireframe and redoing the UV's.

Compositing

Once the models were textured and rendered, I brought them into Photoshop where I composited them over the background plate. In addition, I added decals to the ships, touched up the background plate, and color graded the light to match the blue hue from the planets around them.
