In my previous "black ice planet" enviro' posts (see speed modeling #2) I had small red lights on the distant horizon on a few of the paintings. I began to think about what those lights were. A remote facility like the Antarctic station in "The Thing"? A lone transmitter antenna jutting up out of the frozen wasteland? I decided to go with a vehicle launch station of some kind. In keeping with the aesthetic of the icy environment I made the station a raw, polished metal material. Perfect for reflecting cool highlights and the environment surrounding it! I still have few details to put in but it's 80% there.
