A "Heads Up" if you buy Resident Evil 8 "Deluxe Edition". For some reason, the game has "Black Screen Then Crash" or a "Re8.exe" has stopped working issue. Capcom is aware of this and will publish a patch as quickly as they can, but it has something to do with the Digital Rights Management software killing the game because it doesn't acknowledge the license. Denuvo’s third-person anti-tamper DRM is likely the culprit. I purchased the "Deluxe" dual-game pack from Steam (Re7 & 8 with deluxe extras), and it will not run on my game/entertainment computer (I have one built for that purpose). My system exceeds all the min requirements of Re8 and is a Win 10 Pro computer (so no Directx 12 issues). It should run like a champ. Resident Evil 7 does run spectacularly, but Re 8 won't even launch. Just a heads up for anyone interested. https://battleofbanners.com/resident-evil-village-re8-game-wont-launch-how-to-fix/

For those of you wondering WHY I'm uploading my artwork again. The answer is simple. I completed adding the watermarks to all of them and now can upload the FULL SIZE images so all of you can see the details of my models.

Great stuff adding to my watch.

Thank you. I like your work as well and will reciprocate the watch and llama. :)

Are there any tips that you would give to someone trying to remake their own starfleet
I would be happy to.

I suggest studying the great SF artists of the pre-Star Wars era.
That list would be.

Western Artists:
Chris Foss
Peter Elson
Gerry Anderson
Ralph McQuarrie
Matt Jefferies
Robert Caswell

Eastern Artists:
Leiji Matsumoto
Shoji Kawamori
Jun Okuda
Kazutaka Miyatake

What I mean by study, is just Bing or Google their names, and check out their artwork.
Then start by learning the general shapes of their designs, and then fill in with your own details.
Do not copy them directly (unless it is purely for practice on your own).
Be sure to use real world sources for inspiration as well.
NASA
Janes Periodicals online
Any source of artwork or technical drawings will help you learn about the shapes, designs, looks, colors, and textures of spacecraft.
Learning about various components will help you pick and choose what ones you want your ships to use.
Thanks for add my art in your favourite! :)
