This is a chart of various small to medium sized capital ships in use by the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. All designs are mine except for the CR-20 Troop Transport and the Charger C-70 Frigate, which are official Star Wars designs.
Wedge Antilles and a ... hovering X-Wing! A collaboration with the very talented =Maquaii. I took far too long to finish it, didn't I?
While I've had other people colour my lineart before (you two know who you are. I'm still waiting for you to post your pictures ), I've never had the pleasure of colouring somebody else's linework - until Maq came up with the idea of this collaboration. Working with somebody else's art is an eye-opening experience. You don't tend to think as much when working on your own drawings because you're already so used to your own style and you know where stuff's going to go, but when you're colouring somebody else's, there's a lot you learn about how other people draw and handle things in the process of working things out for yourself. It's educational. It's fun, too.
Man, how bright do those stars have to be, that you can see them from inside a well-lit hangar??? Among other things! I ask you to suspend your disbelief... just for now.
To see the background and the hilariously ridiculous original backdrop, please click here: [link] Many thanks to `DragonWinter for the hangar idea.
A paint-make of the refitted Centurion battlecruiser of the Confederate Central Military. 1725 meters in length, it is a behemoth who's primary role is to protect planetary installations, engage in ship-to-ship combat and remain as command vessels behind the front. Forward and below the primary observation/command tower is an open-space repair dock for corvettes and frigates. It has vast holds for supplies. Incapable of atmosphere reentry however, it still bolsters a heavy supply of starfighters in its port and starboard 'fins'. On the ventral view of the vessel is an elongated scanning tower to map planets with great detail and efficiency, as well as provide a large sensor arc around the ship.
Armed to the teeth with large dorsal and ventral broadsides, the battleship also supports six long-range turrets which fire high-energy projectiles that, depending on yield, are capable of traversing the warp fields. Next to those are two forward-firing cannons that draw from the vessels capacitors, charged from an antimatter reactor tied into eco-point modules, which favorably draw from blue and yellow energies.
