Just a panel from page 85 of the comic [link] that I spent some effort on. Beryl is somber at the conclusion of a fleet battle in which lives were lost, but she cannot conceal her pride as she answers questions about the performance record of her unit.
Photoshop and Lightwave. This is the "full-size" colored panel; the linework is inked at twice this size.
An up-to-date character model sheet for Tempo from Outsider. The old reference drawings, in addition to being laughably bad, only showed the front, so I was winging it for the rest. Also, I'm trying to get all the characters in proper proportion and in correct size relation to each other. (The red scale is Beryl's height: 5'6".)
Actually, proportion-wise, the old drawings aren't as bad as I thought they'd be.
Now the only one of the four main characters without a formal model sheet is -- you guessed it -- Alex, the main character.
Bonny Anne and her trusty Brown Bess. She was created as a pair with the Major at the request of a friend, as part of some kind of school project. Myself and several other artists were given two sets of adjectives, and we were to come up with characters to match them. Unfortunately, the adjectives in question have been lost to time.
The original was done with Micron Pigma ink and Painter 5.5, I re-inked and touched it up in Photoshop. Some problems with it had been nagging at me for years.
The first ship of the Alliance's new EVOLVE series, the Archangel Superdreadnought is one of the most advanced ships in the galaxy. Actually smaller than the older Celestial-Class Superdreadnought, Archangel is viewed as the galaxy's first "Fast Superdreadnought." Capable of achieving a top sub-light speed of .025/.88(MAG Wall/MAG Burst), Archangel can keep up with the fastest battleships in the fleet and is designed around the Alliance's newest concept "The Fast Battlefleet."
As previously stated, Archangel's 5.5km long hulk is a full 500 meters shorter than the older Celestial-Class. However, that hull is married to 90% of the firepower, 180% of the counter-missile coverage/capability, the new 3-inch quad mass-drivers for point defense against frigates/corvettes, and an experimental high yield laser.
In addition, Archangel is clad in a new hybrid armor and uses the same material in its skeleton. Defined as a Fiber Reinforced Ceramic-Titanium Hybrid - this new material is much lighter than traditional Hardened Titanium and accounts for the ships light weight but improved strength and integrity (owning for its faster speeds).
However, Archangel's advancement's do not end there and many won't be fully realized till she leaves the shipyard.
The First ship I've designed for the Star-Empire of Sagittarius.
Armed with heavy bridge gravity shields, the Star-Empire forgoes the norm of burying is bridges within the hulls of warships, instead turning to a tradition of honor and the courage needed to "see your enemy and stare down his gun barrel", placing the bridge at the top of a dorsal tower.
Having never signed the Treaty of Avalon, the Monarch benefits from never having suffered form the restrictions on Naval technology. As such, despite being nearly 30 years old, the Monarch weighs in at 25 million tons and is 2.3 km long, the largest battlecruiser in existence and closing in on the 2.5km long Atleantean War Cruiser.
Furthermore, the ship is equipped with 9 of the largest guns ever mounted on a battlecruiser hull. The .3c 60-inch main gun is as powerful as the latest battleships guns and gives the Monarch an unparalleled punch at gun range. In fact, given its relatively weak low-tier standard missile broadside, the Monarch - like other Imperial Warships - uses its speed, heavy shields, and dense anti-missile systems to close to gun-range of any target it wishes to engage, then using it heavy main guns to rip apart its foes with relative ease. Alliance Captains, even those of the newest Vanguard-Class, can only hope to break through a Monarch's shields while still out of gun-range; because once the 60-incher's on the Monach are zeroed in, there is few ships short of a battleship and dreadnought that can hope to escape its clutches.
