Latest CG project : Xeelee Nightfighter

Well I did promise to use this old blogamajig to inform the world of my CG creations, and finally I've finished one. It's a Xeelee Nightfighter based on the novels of Stephen Baxter.

Nightfighter's primary motive power comes from unfurling wings of folded spacetime. I think that's Baxterian code for "their own immense coolness, bitches." I decided to animate this procedure, which you may view in full glorious HD thanks to YouTube :



More to come...

  1. I quite liked the pictures and the film. Yes, you do have some intermittent viewers! A longer version of the film would be nice, maybe some landing sequences, use of onboard weaponry or some such. Loved the HD.

  5. Nice one. Good to see someone making this stuff. Anyone care to make Baxter's story "Blue Shift"into a movie? That would be most resplendent
