Martian Dawn by Drell-7 Martian Dawn by Drell-7
Vehicles loosely based on the 1986 NASA NERVA 2 INterplanetary spacecraft design. This piece actually started out as a test of my new Mk II Mars close-up terrain, using Mars Orbital Laser Altimetry Data to deform a geodesic metaform 1/8th sphere. Then I put another (slightly larger) 1/8 sphere over it to create the atmosphere. Then inspiration struck, and this is the result. I all ready had modeled the NERVA 2 vehicle some time ago.

Modeled and rendered in Lightwave 8.5, with touch up in Photoshop.

Thanks for taking a look!
