No Photoshop Needed

Currently, Kosmas Santosa is in the midst of a heated battle with Gilcelio Chagas in an epic Iron Builder contest. Kos' latest entry is an incredible display of photography mastery and building skill. Just take a peek, I'll stop talking.


The balloon halves are the special piece in this Iron Builder, specifically the dark blue color. But the true star of this photo is the fantastic motion blur of the background. Who needs Photoshop when you're Kosmas Santosa?

The Perks of the Starfighter Telephone Game

Amazing ships, that's one perk. For those of you who don't know, the Starfighter Telephone Game is just like the children's game Telephone, but each person creates a starfighter and sends that on the next person, and the person who received the fighter will make one inspired by the one they received and so on. It's a ton of fun and some pretty darn amazing fighters come out of it, like this one from Guy Smiley


The mix of dk. bley, lt. blue and lime green is interesting, but it works well here. The design is also unique as is the photography in fact. Check out how the photo was taken. The starfighter is nearly vertical, but the camera is turned to one side to give the effect of being taken side-on. I don't know if I'm just late to the party or never noticed it before, but that's a very good way of taking photos. Well done, Guy!

Spaceship, spaceship, SPACESHIP!!!

An over-used joke from a now cliché (but still good) movie, yes, but still relevant to my feelings about the genre. This D3 Immortal by Nate Daly is spectacular. Interesting and refreshingly new, his design is wonderful in its color and little touches like the discs on the sides.

It's a small starfighter, to be sure, but that is precisely the area Nate is currently excelling in. The blue color against the black of the prongs and discs make for one intimidating figher.

A Glow From Below

Nooreuyed has become quite an amazing scene builder, with his lighting and atmosphere. This is a perfect example of both of those. Sometimes the world isn't picture perfect. Actually, it rarely is. So this barren, desolate landscape patrolled by a walker really caught my eye - not because it was amazingly detailed but because of the atmosphere and lighting.

Plus, the blue cylinders are just beautiful with their lighting. This isn't his only blog-worthy MOC though, so I encourage you to check out his photostream!
