My new digital illustration - only for training. Created in photoshop, something about two days. Without 3D reference. It's a concept of old and worn-out transport ship with very simply shapes and old technologies...

I created very very simple "animation" from particulars snapshots of my work. If you want, you can see it on youtube - [link]

Solar Cargo - Piece of Sun anywhere in the Universe! :)

Thanks for watching!

Hi!  I loved this design and used it as inspiration for a transport ship in Space Engineers!  steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles… for a screenshot.
Had to make some concessions for the game of course, but it flew well, looked great in game, and although I renamed it Skyclad, it retained the W328 registration :)
I'm learning Blender at the moment and think I'll give this one a try next :)

This spaceship is fantastic! I'm looking for a spaceship image for the book cover of a Science Fiction novel I'm working on. I love the angle it's at and all the great detail. If I credited you and sent you a copy of the paperback once it was published would you give me permission to use this illustration on the cover of my Science Fiction novel? I'd be putting it on a different background and shifting the hue a bit to match the background I already have.

Thanks for considering!
Hello Jan! I have used an approximate description of this ship in a novel I am writing. I am not using the image, only its description. Contact me if you would like to read the passage :)
This is being used as a BattleShip in the iPhone game, Galaxy Empire!

To your knowledge, has anybody created this in 3D yet? If not, may I have permission?
hunterkiller's avatar
Hm, one man from youtube contacted me with same question... but If you can make this in 3D, go fot it! :) One thing that I want - credit for me, please. Thanks!

Thanks. Have I not like it. I'd do it differently.

Ne že bych chtěl nějak kritizovat. Je to fakt moc pěkně nakreslené a i design je dobrej, ale vždycky když vidím nějakou vesmírnou bárku tak si říkám k čemu tam sou ty pofidérní křidélka. Ve vesmíru samozřejmě k ničemu a v atmosféře taky protože nemaj žádnej vhodnej tvar pro let.

Díky. Tohle já samozřejmě všechno vím, měl jsem středoškolskou fyziku. Nejsou to křídla aerodynamického typu, může to být cokoliv jiného - prvek konstrukce, kompenzátor, pouzdra na solární panely, kryty, dokovací systém... ne všechno, co vypadá jako křídlo musí být nutně křídlo. Navíc to má i svůj smysl v kompozici toho obrázku.

Jo tak kompozici moc nerozumím. Asi máš pravdu, může to být cokoliv, ale 1. co to ve mě evokuje jsou křídla :). Možná kdyby to mělo trochu jiný tvar jako třeba, že by to bylo prořezávané nebo tak něco tak by to tolik neevokovalo křídla. Ale jinak je to moc pěkné.

GREAT design, like it a lot, the background is nicely done too!
The front and the engine effects are very cool, the back is kinda regular :(
But anyway, the textures are the best^^

Thank you for comment. Yes, design is not revolutionary or extra-futuristic. But I wanted something like an old and worn-out tanker.

Very nicely done. I also watched the video. I'm fascinated by the depiction of the 'creative process'.
