A great interpretation of the Star wars imperial star destroyer, while staying true to the character of the original vessels you add a whole new level of interesting functionality to this.

While I am scoring the originality of this work low, due to the fact the image is based off of star wars I would like it to be recognized that this does not hamper the beauty of this design

The mesh its self is well thought out, a masterful build with no visible impurities. As I do not know the number of polygons I can not comment on the game "friendliness"

The uv wrapping is seamless, on that I would like to applaud you, especially due to the (seemingly) complexity of the geometry.

The texture is somewhat lacking however, while what is already present is great, especially the placement of portholes (lights), When I (I would like to stress the 'I' ) look at this it feels just a tad bland. Perhaps an insignia or battle scars could rectify this issue.

The background is well made, I am going to assume that it is an equirectangular image. The size and density of the star fields is perfect. The planets placement is also quite well thought out.

The lighting is very well done, especially with the inclusion of bounce light from the planet surface. The overblown light on the ship adds to the flavor of the scene along with the subtle flare, (well placed).

It can bee seen that you have spent a lot of time on this and your commissioner should be very happy. Well done sir.

Though I will not be able to critique the technical aspect of the deviation I will, as a huge Star Wars fan, critique the feel of it.
Long story short: I love it.
It's not the usual star destroyer, it looks smaller and smoother. You can't see all the "little tiny" buildings made by weaponry, sensor stations or such but maybe they're retractable?
It looks like this ship could be used for stealth operations and its huge reactors on the back should give her the right power to bolt away when needed.
Well, I really wouldn't like meeting this lady when leaving my home planet.

Last thing: I love the lighting of the scene. It makes you wonder what is going to happen...

doesn't look Imperial to me- looks like the same era as the Sith Harrower class Dreadnought. starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Harrow…
Works very well regardless.

The ISD? Judging by some scenery in new Battlefront it's pretty easy to assume that everything rusts in Star Wars :D

hmm that's interesting i had always though that they made there ships out of stuff that didn't rust. i mean even on earth we have alloys that don't rust

Yeah but Star Wars is just meant to be rusty :) Imperial walkers are probably the best example - they landed fresh on Hoth and were already stained and dirty.

Well I will most likely see it since I like the feel of the cinema's big screen, but can't say I'm thrilled about the visuals either. Falcon returning, X-wings just being McQuarrie's concept and TIEs having a new paint job isn't particulary exciting. Not to worry though, I'm making a comic and it will have everything brand new - troopers, rebels, fighters, cruisers, interiors and space stations.

It looks like they took design elements from your ship and implemented them into their new Star Destroyer for the Force Awakens.

Indeed, Star Wars is more friendly to fan creations since Star Trek ships follow certain criteria. Many ships created by fans fail that criteria.

Well from my own timeline, I had her being created during the Imperial Remnant era. When they needed more Anti-Ship ships, and needed less of a focus on a "Jack of all trades" type ships

Actually, to save money, it's designed to use the same basic hull design as the original. That way you can use all the pre-existing factories and manufacturing centers and will have to do a LOT LESS retooling of the factories to make the new ship :')

I do love this concept and its design !!+fav 


[However, I wonder about a potential flaw in the spec sheet : the using of Tie Avengers, Tie Defenders, Skyprays & Tie Scouts, which are quite expensive fighters ... Can't the use of others starfighters (like the chiss fighter "Clawcraft" or the later "Predator") would not be more logical from the point of view of money saving ?]
