14 deviants said Start a new faction and a such a new fresh design is needed
10 deviants said Start a whole new line of ships based on an old design
5 deviants said Start small, maybe a company (only designs, limited to no nation/background story etc)
No deviants said Suggestions
Hello everyone,

The last couple of days several watchers asked me if I am still open to do commissions.
The answer is yes but recently I deleted the journals containing information about commission work.
This was done since they were outdated but also because for some time I was not able to work on anything due to real life issues.

Now to the real information concerning prices and so on. Basically I will do this based on the complexity of the drawing. Obviously there is a base guideline that can be found down here:
Profiles: 25$
Perspective: 45$
Scene: 55$
Technical: 30$

Of course these are open for discussion depending what you want. Samples can be found in my gallery.

Payment is via paypal and is to be received after completion of the starting sketch. After payment the final product will be made. Why this way you might ask? This is because of past experiences. This works the best since both parties can get everything sorted out before the final product is made.

Thats it for now. Again thanks for commenting and liking the images. 


Veridian Destroyer by HandofManos
Veridian Destroyer
Basically the side profile is finished but I do consider it not yet completely finished since the background will need to be cleared. Even so I think this will be the new heading for CoM 3.0 for the nation I used before.
Light Laser Gun by HandofManos
Light Laser Gun
Just a tryout getting to know the tablet more. 
Chronicles of Man 3.0 LTM-200 Light Freighter by HandofManos
Chronicles of Man 3.0 LTM-200 Light Freighter
The first real try in making something for the new CoM3.0 In this case a modular light freighter with a crew of 3. It can be armed with three point defense turrets (2 on its back and on on its chin) but basically these ships would be used in well patrolled areas.

Tried to add some techniques I've done up while working on the fighter jets and with the tablet.

EDIT: some additional details and guns added. Also will use the background as a base for other images.
Chronicles of Man 3.0: Civilian Freighter by HandofManos
Chronicles of Man 3.0: Civilian Freighter
Another small freighter design. This time a slightly bigger one and this one is armed (albeit only for small anti fighter combat).
Capable to carry more cargo then the LTM 200 Modular Freighter its the ideal ship for inner system and single system jump transports. Compared to the LTM 200 this ship has no atmospheric capability and as such operates mainly in open space or in low gravity areas (like moons, artificial structures, asteroid bases and so on). 

Considering the poll states a redesign is in order I will use the things I learned working on these designs for one of the older ships and rework that so it will fit in the new CoM universe.
