Very cool. It has that 'Star Blazers' vibe going for it. I'm guessing that those red panels are VLS ports.

Ah I recall the model :) I personally don't mind. But this is a possible commission so it depends on the requesting party. I will get back to you if you are still interested

the design is better then many.. not got gobs of crap poking thru hull. with modern electronics ect. bridges dont need to be external and the deeper the better.. the ship shows good thought. but with one flaw. the belly has no gun system or defence , rear back lower or seems to .. but over all love the design.

It does have missile launcher/tubes though but it does lack a dedicated turret. Mainly since it needs space for its dropbays. :) Perhaps a downside for this navy design strategy ;)

ahh not knowing the world and what tech used was thinking of major capital ship.. didnt think it would be used as a drop ship.. its design is good overall and can see it being used..

My mistake I meant it has bays for dropships :D It aint a dropship itself.

Great ship - simple but with nice details. I love the colors - they are more bold than what we usually see.

Very beautiful and the color panel is delightful ! I am not a technician to speak about the technical design, but as an artist, I think it is really great :heart:

I hope that bridge on the hull is just for peace purposes and maneuvering when docking...

:iconhandofmanos:
HandofManos Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thats the idea I think, I mainly do this since the person I am making this for wanted it. My own designs use the CIC for main control and that is located well inside the ship's structure

I don't know why people put he bridges on the exterior of a spaceship.
That's just dangerous as hell.

Put the bridges INSIDE your ship, as close to the center as possible..
Reply
:iconhandofmanos:
HandofManos Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I totally agree on that regard, this is mainly something the person for whom I am making this, wants. I do believe this will be mostly a bridge for docking and peactime configuration. Main operations or the CIC will be, like you mentioned, in the center of the ship where it has the best protection.

Ahh..
How much are requests/commissions?

I don't fully understand how to make ships like you and the rest of the CoM members do. And I like the style, and it's a good step-forward to mapping out how I want ships to look before I go and make a 3d model.

It all depends on what you want for a commission. But if you are looking for multiple views (side/front/top etc views) it will probably be around $40.

Ahhhh...
I just spent that much on a mouse.
I'd rather learn how to do it myself
Especially for just one ship.

How about any tips on how to do what you guys do? specific tools or anything? I know it's what... illustrator or PS?

No problem and indeed best to try yourself ;) It also gives you more ways to learn it. As advice take a look at what is established. I would suggest taking a look at Galen82 or Madeinjapan's material as well as mine (check the favourites I have in the Chronicles of Man map) for inspiration. Make a sketch or a doodle and when you feel like it works use photoshop or illustrator :) If you want I could take a look at the sketch and help you out ;)
