I must have commented on this previously... the page has been up with some version of the Red Horizon for three years now!

But hey, awesome ship! I do so love the Red Horizon, at this point she's like my third... no fourth... ah maybe my fifth... yeah, probably sixth favorite character of yours... in the Bright Future anyway. You have so many great characters, the fact that a non-MetaTek ship is my sixth favorite is quite a thing :nod:

Bright Future (only) Faves in (current) order: Yinda, Axbet, Numia (some days Numia fights with Axbet for second place, but she's only tangentially Bright Future, she's mostly really Aiers), Aten-Neb, that one dark-skinned busty purple-haired PsiComp lady (from "Decontamination" and "PsiComp Authority" that looks a bit like Th-Zho but curvier and I keep making renders of her and yet I can never remember her actual name, Red Horizon, Antibodies, Orna/Bia (really one entry, they are indivisible with liberty and justice for none), Navigator Tive, the Silka model Corvette, Th-Zho, Elan Mossburg.

Odd that you mention Borderlands, considering I just started another playthrough of the first game. The style of this ship, and all of my other drawings since I drew this (over a year ago), are not really deliberately Borderlands-like, but I can see the connection.

That smaller vessel is the Hammerhead. Not the most original name, I know, but i was a nub at naming things back then and it stuck. I have a mesh I used for blocking in this designs, but it's pretty basic, you'd probably be better off just starting from scratch. If you want to try your hand at modeling it, go ahead, just make sure to provide source/credit for the design.

More of the Red Horizon, or more illustrative concepts like this? Because I plan on doing both. Since you were interested, have a peek at some related stuff.

Daemoria Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Actually that's a external sensor spike/gate hardware, responsible for switching the ship between Normal space and into the Mirror Horizon, kinda like the gates I posted previously, but smaller. It contains the sensors and processing power to analyze local space time.

The Mirror Horizon being the stranger form of FTL that is still fairly under-exploited by my 'universe'. Ships have to rely on Alcubierre-derived tech to move faster than light, and its usually too power intensive/expensive to bother equipting all of the personal vessels with the drives necessary. This is where the Carrier vessels come into play, Like the Myrhymn Dreadnought, and this Battlecarrier. Parasite vessels can hitch a ride without need for ftl tech.

The ARC Bows are the small secondary turrets, and those are railguns. i.imgur.com/hFNy6Wm.png
I don't know the main cannon specifics yet, but probably they are probably larger scale railguns as well.
The parasite bays have lots of little scalar beams, but thats for tearing apart ships/ manipulating gravity in a local area.

cinema4d, and photoshop. scale is abstract right now, but in real world scale it would probably be around 2 kilometers long.

Fun fact: battle-carriers, or 'Battlestars' as they are better known in science fiction (Read: Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars, many military sci-fis) actually existed in real life (sea-going ones), but didn't become prominent because it was proven to be impractical and unwieldy compare to a dedicated carrier or a dedicated battleship.
