Just in time for E3 and, hopefully, a Mass Effect announcement.
The model has been rebuilt from scratch over a couple of months. I took some artistic liberties with the details, most notably on the engines, but also on the bridge, which was a bit plain on the original and game models. For the outer hull I took a page from the Galactica book. The panels are raised and set on visible bulkheads. The insides that are visible through the windows are also modelled and lit.
Original size 14400 pixels for 1200mm @ 300dpi print.
