I had this idea of a long zoom to show the gigantism of the Culture and the size relation between a GSV, a GCU, then a Very Fast Picket and finally a dock's drone. Ultimately, this sequence will zoom from an orbital to the tiniest drone inside the GSV's dock.
Introducing a new GSV named So Far So Good.
These are raw renderings from Cycles, slightly processed with the blender compositor.
Still, it is far from finished. There is a lot of work ahead on 3D assets and lighting. The GSV is barely designed, there is a ton of modeling, shading and texturing remaining and many things to fix in order to make a decent rendering.
I hope you like it!
