...and that it is.

You guys at GVFX rule, I really do mean that you all did a great job. I'm sure I'll be even more impressed when the movie airs.

NURBS! I love NURBS! I just like saying it. NURBS. Sounds so cool, yet funny.

But my heart has to go out to Bezier curves/surfaces.

Sheridan: Are you trying to cheer me up?
Ivanova: No sir, wouldn't dream of it.
Sheridan: Good, I hate being cheered up. It's depressing.
Ivanova: So in that case we're all going to die horrible, painful, lingering deaths.
Sheridan: Thank you, I feel so much better now.
Sweet, those pictures will prove invaluable for fans recreating the Liandra model. I sense a new project coming on.

Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

Thank you thank you thank you!

I might give it a go with modeling, I can't texture good however so it'd be a kinda crappy version.

Hmm... thats interesting... I wonder why they decided to go with the motteled bronze hull look, instead of the other hull colours? Granted that its an older ship. Oh and using maya to recreate that lightwave look would be a challenge. Either way, cudos to the art and 3d team, as i'm salivating even more for the movie...
