Flying Saucer

Just a little something I whipped up in 5-10 hours (spread over the course of two days) for a CGI challenge over at another forum I frequent. I was going for a retro look, but I think it came out looking more like an Apple product. The trail is also supposed to be a bit more “glowy,” but I don’t think I went about it the right way (transparent solid with Emit at 5-10ish, along with “Fog” blur).

I’m still pretty satisfied with it.

Very nice, although one quick thing. I think that the "trail’ could use more of something like a gaussian blur. Althought that’s just me.

that’s with a fast gaussian and I think that’s what you were going for, and I really like the style of the picture!
