and the real viper is…

Ok folks, it’s 1:30 am and despite my best efforts, WordPress is not allowing me to upload any images!  Trust me, I’ve tried everything.  You’re all going to just have to hold on one more day for the full story.  Besides, today was uber-busy and the extra time will allow me to really put together a comprehensive look at the whole process.  It will be worth the wait. 

Oh frak it, the bottom one is fake :-)

    Nooooo! As in, now we have to wait another day for your awesome ‘how-i-did-it’! The REAL one looks very much like a lot of the photos of Star Wars vehicles from that era. Can’t wait for more Mojo, thank you, so much, for sharing!

    I’m pumped to learn how you did it!

    I was kinda hoping we were all wrong (which would’ve been appropriate for a BSG conundrum), but the fact that we all had to stare at the images for so long says a lot. :)

    I look forward to the article.

    I thought the tip-off might have been the wilted laser cannon in the top one.

    By my rough count, fifty-eight of the guesses were correct, five were incorrect, and a couple couldn’t make up thier minds. We’re pretty good at this ;)

    The most interesting thing was seeing the different aspects everyone focused on in making their decisions. I can’t wait to hear from the horse’s mouth.

    I am still really interested in the techniques that were used to produce the image to look so close to tv footage, intend to try it out with some renders myself. :)
