The Moties by GlennClovis The Moties by GlennClovis
Needed something to replace my dual monitor background. All modeling done in Cinema4D, PS for the rest. The Human ships in the Foreground took fricken forever to make, well over 150 hours including the time it took me to fix them so I could actually render them without locking up the network renderer. The Alien ships took about two hours...go figure. The title comes from the novel "The Mote in God's Eye" by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle.

The contrast in ships captures difference well.

I don't mean that as faint praise.

Moties are among the best of science fiction aliens. They're not a proxy for human foibles like most aliens are. They are really ALIEN. Even their technology comes from bizarre places -- like the "Watchmakers." They make my head hurt just thinking about them.

Very cool that you even tried to tackle the task, much less produced a good result!
