Are there any tips that you would give to someone trying to remake their own starfleet
Kodai-OkudaProfessional Digital Artist
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.
