I have made up a mesh I like for a frigate design I use. unfortunately, I haven't the ability to do justice coloring it. I probably won't do anything with it but post some JPGs here, but will give credit if anyone wants to finish the thing

Captain Tagon: It it wrong for me to think that would be pretty cool to watch?

You mean the software package, right? And here I thought this site was turning into a mixed drinks recipe repository! :D

I've been working on Blender for a bit now, and I've gotten reasonably decent at it (sorry no links -quite- yet).

I've looked at some of your stuff Club, and I think the issue is that you mold the hull out of one single object. For computer games and high end work it's definitely better. For our more humble purposes (and without the service of pro texture artists) one should build an object out of multiple items. For example, http://xveers.deviantart.com/#/d2wleu9 is composed of 19 different objects, all "parented" to the main box. This lets me more easily tag textures of one part to another part to another part. You CAN do multiple textures on a single object as per http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:T ... _Materials but, it's tricky and more than a little frustrating to get to work.
