Cracker Nebula redo

Took some advice.

Spent some time in Photoshop and Max with the mesh. Don’t ask where the time came from – I owe it back (ugh). Anyway…

I realized, after said advice, I did not have specular maps for this ship, I had the base textures with layers just for that in the PSD files but never saved them out.

Okay done those.

Rendered the ship out again with a different view and larger output images (4K). Put it all in PS. Spent some additional time with the background as well. The original render, placed in PS, had 5 layers and this ended up with 10. Four of those layers are collapsed multi layer sets which I did to keep it easy.

So, better?
