I can see where you might be going with this artwork. However the designs lack many of the central elements that many iconic Republic ships share. Specifically the triangle shape that ships like the Venator and Acclamator class ships share. The same applies for the color of the ship, as most Republic capital ships are meant to have a light grayish color tone instead of brown. Lastly the ship itself is too thin in the middle, a design that would make more sense for a starfighter instead of a full fledged capital ship.

Other than that, I admire how you tried your made to make the ship look practical. By including several elements including the lights, boosters, towers, and many other elements that would be common in most star wars related ships. No cartoony looking turrets or misproportions.
I also admire the simplicity of the background as it allows me the focus my attention on the ship itself.

Overall, a very well made picture. I just feel like the ship looks too different from typical Republic capital ships, my advice would be to retcon it's title to a Pirate ship. As it bears a much stronger resemblance to the brownish and strangely designed ships that the Hutts/Black Sun would use during their reign. I would also encourage you use another ship from the Star Wars movies to serve as a size comparision to give the viewer a better idea at the size of your work.

A very good rendering of a ship from before the Republic adopted the more well-known designs. I really prefer simpler, more practical designs and this ship seems to fall at least visually into that kind of design albeit I must say that the towers are something in Star Wars I can't quite get over but that is still the source material and Star Wars as a whole.

The way it was rendered was quite good too, the plating lines are very detailed and the engines, just out of sight, give a good but not overdone fire from them as would be expected in space.

I personally like this ship due to it having a rather sleek appearance and the fact that it appears to be rather practical in concept thanks to lacking the oversized feeling of Star Destroyers despite its length, as well as having a straightforward and not overly stylistic kind of look.

"We Brake... Never!" (sorry, just made me think of 'Space Balls') Cool Design! ;-)

I know this sounds like a weird question, but do you know if there are any documents anywhere on the 'net concerning ship construction rules for this game, or the WEG D6 system in general?
Shoguneagle Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2018
You might be able to find it at RancorPit ( for homebrew rules. An official ship construction set never existed for the D6 rule set, only modifications in the Tramp Freighters galaxy guide and the Pirates and Privateers book.

The Ships of the Tales of the Jedi era are really "alien"....they almost look like barges in space. Blocky and no beauty.

Excellent, it would be cool to have a little ship docking or entering a hangar to give a better sense of scale

Absolutely stunning.  I really need to give the Tales of the Jedi series a read some day, everything I know about it stems from secondhand sources like the Essential Guides and Wookieepedia.

It's a great comic book series, and I regard it as essential material to fully grasp the lore of the EU/Legends setting. There are four story arcs, and all of them layout the adventures and trials of both Ulic Qel-Droma and Nomi Sunrider, two legendary figures from the past of the Jedi Order. If you can get your hands on them,  I highly recommend the series!

The Art in those comics are insane too...epic.
Shoguneagle Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2018
Yeah. That was Christ Gossett at his best.

Oh, this is fucking good, dude, this is fucking awesome. There are painfully few modern/alternative renditions of OR-era ships out there
Shoguneagle Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2018
I'm a huge Tales of the Jedi fan. I always wanted to see these ships actualized beyond the comic pages, and here we are.

If you haven't commissioned a Derriphan yet, I might. 
Shoguneagle Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2018
Oooh, that'd be good.

Get hype.
