Just about done! I've got two versions, one of them is an upside down version. Which feels more interesting to you? And which one makes sense given this image takes place in space?

Finally starting to texture. I've decided I'll have to render the earth separately and then comp it in. The project is just too massive now and my comp can't handle it. Having to wait 2min. for the LV to update is killing my productivity.

Experimenting with mood and lighting now. Also started getting cables in. Modeling is almost finished! Then its on to texturing.

Been a busy week for me, so not a lot of progress, but I got a few more things modeled in, and I'm starting to experiment with the texture of the earth.

More "stuff" modeled and crammed in there. Still need to add cables and a few more gadgets and things, and then its on to cables. So many cables...
Here's another 360 view in browser. Using Dermandar instead of photoshphere this time, so now there isn't any weird low-poly distortion in the projection.http://pnr.ma/dySWZeORIGINAL POST
Reserving a post for myself for WIP on my entry for the Render The Metaverse Competition.
Here's my current work in progress. I don't have gearVR, but I do have a cardboard headset! If you have one as well, go ahead and download the attachement, throw it into your DCIM or pictures folder on your phone, pop it into your cardboard headset, and run the cardboard app. Select "Photospheres", and you should see it! Enjoy. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
If you don't have any way to view these files, I have a photosphere posted that you can browse in your browser here (note that Photospheres uses a very low-poly sphere for projection, so as you look towards the poles, you'll see some awful warping. But hey, its free!):https://plus.google.com/116410337047875511374/posts/Uk3KQqDpdSC?pid=6144686937894392642&oid=116410337047875511374
Can you guess what I'm making yet?
