A reconstruction, from photographic reference only, of the SS Sardinian, an Allen Line transatlantic steamer built in 1874. The hardest part was the sea water and the smoke (still not entirely satisfied with either). One of the limitations was that this shot had to be rendered in Maya's own renderer, which isn't as photo-real as mental ray or RenderMan.
All work was done in Maya with compositing in After Effects.
