Essex in Orbit

I did a little texture work on the Essex.  I originally textured it more like my TOS Enterprise but I decided to give the hull paneling more of at TMP look, to show a progression between the series and the movies.  Then I decided to render something similar to one of Mike Minor’s concept paintings for the undeveloped Phase II TV series.  The position of the camera and lighting are similar to Mike’s painting, though I changed the planet to something that worked better with my image resolution, which also allowed me to show the ship more closely.  Also, Mike had a sun in his painting but its position didn’t match the lighting on the ship, so I left it out.
