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.
