The real Starbuck may be pride of you young padawan ;-)
Maybe you will be my motivation for a 3d work on this theme...

Keep on Rockin'

That last sketch looks very promising, keep it up!

Holy cow man, holy cow.

You're sketches ROCK! They are so amazing, clearly show what your intents are, and are just bloomin' gorgeous.

If they're your sketches I can't wait to see the final image.

I'm so in awe of you 2D guys, who can do these amazing sketches on PC. Where does one start to learn how to do this? Do you need a graphics tablet? What software do you use? Are there any tutorials on the net?? 'Cos I'm at an intermediate level with 3d, but I've been so inspired by the 2d side, I'd love to learn how to do that - because for my concept sketch I had to go traditional, using pencil and watercolours... which was time consuming, and doesn't have the powerful colours of a computer sketch.

A little bit of patience...

Hey dude!
Thanx for such concideration!
First of all, i begun to draw at 8 and i'm 30 years old (so be quite patient).
Take a look at this tutorial
from a great artist named Sparth.
Of course you will need a tabet pencil and a drawing soft (like photoshop or Painter).

Hang on!

thanks for the advice, I'll check out that tutorial, and I'm already considering the purchase of a graphics tablet, as it should help with my 3d as well (For things like Artisan in Maya, where I can sculpt using the pen and pressure sensitive pad etc.)

Starbuck, that's a lovely concept there! You so obviously know what you're doing, it's a joy to behold. It reminds me of a lovely mix of Bespin and Battlestar Galactica. Superb colours, very grand.

Another great concept!!

I don't think it is as 'grand' as the image before with the shaft of light... but the fighters look great and, once again, it's beautifully painted.

is this a close up version of that previous concept?

hey starbuck nice drawings man.,..nice design...didn't know that peoples from Aston Martin get so far till now!!I'm an Aston fan now....well...I was before ..have to admit/....he he ..nice going ..cheers

I'm 30 years old (old school style)

Maybe Duddlebug! It might be a close up of the first concept (i like very much the "hive donut" as base for the spears).

And yes i'm very inspired by the starwars and galactica series (nobody's perfect!)
I'm gonna make some new researchs next week on the mothership "USS Vanquish" (i'd rather find an other name, everybody think of aston martin car) and later for the "hive-donut-base"

Hi Starbuck,

I dont worry about your artwork. You will go far.
Old 10 October 2004   #43
Wow, great designs and concept.
I love the mood in the first concept and the openess in the second one, both of them are very good.
