(My VFX) TOS - The Doomsday Machine WIP4 by Chris2027
(My VFX) TOS - The Doomsday Machine WIP4
I still need to add the little rock that comes apart when it hits the Constellations hull. I've been trying to figure out how to create the chunks, I've used some free scripts (like  Fracture Voronoi), but they make the inside surface smooth shards and they don't look right... how can I make chunks that fit together, but aren't smooth surfaced on the inside.

The last shot isn't remotely finished... I'm thinking of making the DDM hull look more blue than purple.

Xylocopa virginica aka Eastern carpenter bee by Chris2027
Xylocopa virginica aka Eastern carpenter bee
My sister and I fished him out of the pool, he's alive, more or less. He sure is clinging to that pool skimmer though.

I said "he," as this is a male. Males have a patch of white or yellow cuticle on the face, as opposed to females, whose faces are black. Males are also unable to sting, since a bee's stinger is a modified ovipositor (an egg laying organ).

The primary difference in the appearances of a bumblebee and X. virginica is the conspicuous black, round spot surrounded by yellow hairs atop the thorax.

In spring, they awake. The males adopt one of multiple mating strategies, but mostly hover around looking for mates. Pollinator decline is a serious environmental issue and carpenter bees are being valued increasingly as important pollinators.

Carpenter bees are not solitary bees, but are not truly social either. The weak form of sociality they exhibit, with one female doing the majority of the work, and caring for her sisters, may be a transitional step in the evolution of sociality. However they tend to be gregarious, and often several will nest near each other.

Male eastern carpenter bees are curious and will investigate anyone, including humans, that comes near their nests. The curiosity is often interpreted as aggressiveness; however, the males are only aggressive to other male carpenter bees. They do not have stingers and cannot cause any real harm. The female carpenter bees tend to be busy with floral visitation and nest provisioning, but have the ability to cause a painful sting if captured.

If you send me a msg, make sure you stay on for a minute or so, b/c I reply immediately, most of the time.

I was a C/1st Lt. in Army JROTC at Airport High School. 3D animation is my all time favorite hobby aside from computers.

I of course love working with computers in general. Just remember, I hold the right, to disclose information to you or not.

I'm running:
Windows 7 Home Premium x64
AMD FX-8320 @ 3.5 GHz
8GB DDR3-1600 RAM
1 x 240 GB SSD, 1 x 60GB SSD and 1 x 1TB HDD
Nvidia GTX 550 Ti 1GB

-I'm an Atheist Liberal.
-I'm an LGBT rights activist.

I don't believe in God or any god that you might believe in, and no amount of bible or other holy verses will change my mind, the bible and all other holy books are not proof of a supreme being, they're no more proof of a supreme being than a book about Santa proves Santa exists, sorry.

I've got one rule, if you are an extremely religious person, don't evangelize to me, and you're welcome here, but the minute you start telling me, God this and God that, and Jesus this and Jesus that, and so on, you're gonna be on your way, to find someone else to bother. Capiche?

I'm pro-choice, sorry, I don't think it's anyone right to tell a women what to do with her body.
