I'm a big fan of virtually all sci-fi works and universes.
I am mostly inspired by Star Wars and Star Trek art, since they were the foundation of my childhood television and cinema memories.
I learned to appreaciate the timeless designs that were created by all the amazing artists and I decided to go my own way while creating new stuff. I love all of the classics but I prefer to do things my own way, giving my creations their own unique looks and feel, to which I can relate more easily.
I am also a huge car design fan and just as I do with the starships, I don't try to recreate things that we are all familiar with. I love to discover prototypes and unreleased concept cars, rebuilding them in 3D afterwards.
Beside just doing the Tempest reimaning you could also do ships and stations from Star Wars High Republic
maybe combin Star Wars and Star Trek ships together
Star Wars High Republic ships
Also when is your Mass Effect Tempest drawing coming out I would like to see it.
I love your work! Really catches the feel of the different ships, and is seriously useful when showing players what kind of ship they're chasing or being chased by.
I wonder if you've made an attempt at the Pathfinder-class scout ship?
