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.
Usually I'm not one to go after 3D vehicle renders, but these are damn good models. Keep up the good work and I wonder what will be next.
My roleplaying group dreamt up an RHE light mining/freighter ship, statistically almost identical to a CEC limpet ship. As a ship that may have to do mining work on and among asteroids, it has walker legs and heavy point defenses. The group member who designed it did a nice job; the look incorporates known RHE design aesthetics and says 'this is a utilitarian Star Wars freighter.'
I wish I could convince him to let me upload the visuals for a commission! He had software that allowed at least a basic 3d form render for us. I know his reasons for not uploading the design for others to see, and I can identify with them. But there are people that could refine both the exterior appearance and it's deck plan into something even more believable... and thus beautiful. Everyone misses out if he hoards it!
If I ever change his mind, you and ShogunEagle will know immediately.
Well, a recently-issued commission was posted by longtime collaborator ShogunEagle just a few days ago . I take that as a good sign.
Hey, I've been trying to get in touch with you about a commission. can't wait to talk to you. I love your work and hope your doing well.
