So after posting a revised and colored version of the Ambassador Refit plan, I am left standing at a fork in the road and I would love to get some opinions from the masses.  I have taken up the duty of finishing what I intended to do months ago with regard to the Ambassador, but after colorizing the dorsal plan, I relaized just how much work is involved.  Since I work in CADD all the time to produce plans, the methods for output is a bit of trickery, meaning that I render the views in a way that they come out smooth and clearer at high resolution, instead of the normal output to printers, so in essence, there aren't any "jaggies".  Anywho, after a render is completed (all 1.2gb of it), I export the image to Photoshop for the coloring, but it's a lot of coloring.  I cannot create the colored shapes in CADD as they will not render in color the way I want.  With that said, there is a LOT of time taken to color and while I had requested input from a friend about it, he indicated that he liked the old colored versions I once did (the blue background with white linework), which I am still toying with the idea again, but I also like the plain white background with black linework.

Now, i ask you all, what do you think looks better?  If anyone has any further input, please feel free to post.

Well, what's to say. I have a passion for art, in all of it's forms but my skills draw me more towards the technical side of it all. My interests from a creative standpoint are derived from my geeky Star Trek days and with the advent of technology, it has made it even easier for me to express my passions in a more creative way. Aside from creating drawings, I love flying. Although I am not a certified pilot (not yet, at least), I fly occasionally through flight sim and with that I can take the occasional snap and clean it up nicely for display in my portfolio. One day I'll get into the pilot's seat, but I'm in no hurry. :)
