I can see them recessed. There's a darker area around the edge of the "glass" which could be a shadow from the tan metal being higher than the glass.

My point is that your interpretation of that blurry mess (and that is what we are discussing, interpretation) may not be the "right" interpretation. So be very careful when you start stating your interpretations and ideas based on the original as the only right ideas. Other people see, and have seen for many years, different things.

My friggin goodness!! I'm mesmerized! I especially love the way you are dealing with the cockpits, it gives it a sort of shivanish, yet still vasudan vibe! :)

I also like the ribbing you applied to the top spike. I wonder how something like that would look like on the engine pods (the area you were strugling with)!

Yeah, I know that you think it's not Shivan enough, but sorry, I'll keep the pods as they are. The shapes are quite different (the pods sections is like a half cilinder and the other one is more like in diamond shape. That changes a lot. And to be honest, I worked a lot in the area in which the outher "wings" meet the pods, 'cause the geometry is quite tricky there and I don't want to touch it. Also, I like the way those engine look.

I never got the impression from the retail/enhanced retail .pof that the canopies were recessed. In fact, I'd say they're not. I'd strongly suggest reconsidering the design of the cockpits on those grounds.

...I do love those engines, however. :yes:

Well, I don't get the impression it's recessed in the original either but I tried the recessed look and I think it makes the ship feel more armored and it makes the bottom window look like a shivan thing... and I love how that looks. While I like to keep the model true to the original one, I won't make an exact copy of it...

man, I just took a bath 5 minutes ago.

dammit.

I'm sorry man.   :)

I really hope you do! I had a hard time at first but once I started to get the basic stuff through practice, I never looked back.
I use Blender ('cause it's free), and I started with these tutorials: http://cgcookie.com/blender/category/getting-started/
If you're going with Blender, I can't stress this enough: KNOW YOUR SHORTCUTS. You want the interface working for you and not against you. It takes lots of patience at first, but it's worth it.  :yes:
And if you need some help getting started, send me a PM.  :)

I don't think it was supposed to be recessed, but after staring at it for a while, I really like the recessed feel. It's more alien and armoured, which really suits a Vasudan ship.

I love that nose man. Shivan feel right there.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Why, you ask? What, do I look like a Shivan to you?!?
