Imperial Star Destroyer Redux WIP#1

OK, it’s time. After 15 years, it’s time to redo this model. I've been looking forward to doing this since Rogue One's star destroyer came out. My original, from 2002-2003 (https://www.artstation.com/artwork/2Gqze), was pretty good for a while, but it doesn't *really* hold up to 4k nowadays, and was really getting a little too old. It was my first really detailed model back in the day and I learned a lot doing it, so coming back to the same references is hugely nostalgic and satisfying for me.

This is going to be a long process, but at the end, it’s going to be the best CGI star destroyer, end of story. There are no restrictions on polygon count, which is good, because it's likely to top out over 20 million. The plan is to average references from several sources, so it won’t be an exact greeble duplicate of Avenger, but recognizably the same class. It will generally be an upgrade on the studio model in terms of detail, given the demands and flexibility of the medium.
