The 'Shiny 1' is the first in a series of artworks I have recently started. The series experiments with reflective surfaces, so that in this case, the ship´s skin looks like polished metal. The design is rather low-tech, with external tanks for the fuels needed and a simple, cylindrical hull with spherical ends. Done in 3dSMax. Note: I´ve replaced the original picture with a new one incorporating a more realistic (I hope!) backdrop.
