The Pride of Cucamonga



I'm not doing much commercial illustration these days, except for a few tech diagrams for novels - mostly with my author and friend, Allen Steele. This was the image I created for his book, "Galaxy Blues" [[link] illustrating the "hero spaceship", which most of the action takes place aboard.

This summer I finished three pages of work for Allen's next novel, "Hex".... in which the above ship makes a brief guest appearance :D

Allen usually kitbashes the ships from his books before he starts to write, so I had a physical model as a starting point. I dressed it up a bit, but it's still 90% Allen's design. The line drawing was fully executed in Photoshop.

NOTE: This drawing has been modified from the print version to include larger radiator space.

Really enjoyed that book, and your drawing helped with getting into the story.
