Absolutely incredible ship designs!! I love that fisrt concept... the tonal values are so bang on.

And it does have a 'train' look to it... mixed with a oil tanker... or something. WHo knows?? Except it's one of the best ship consepts i've see in this challenge.

The new concept is great too... love 'em...

The idea for the final image sounds pretty spectacular... And if it's filled with design of this quality i can't wait to see it all fleshed out!! Gonna keep a real close watch on this thread!!

your most recent concept.. I couldn't do stuff like that even if I worked weeks with it.. Those colors are definately worth of keeping!

That metallic sheen u get is so cool . How long did it take to
do this last one ? How about in general ?
That fighter is really cool too , your finished stuff must be

Thanks guys , these sketches take about from an hour to 2-3 , on and off from the blank sheet of paper to the digital image.

The final image is going to be tricky . This is what I have in mind :

There are 2 civilisations on this planet . One is on the elevated surface / in the sky (Airtonians) , and another one is underwater (Divesians) . Due to the wast differences of these 2 they were never in good relations with each other. The most sacred possesions of Divesians are the technology and their ships which they have kept secret for many generations .Somehow Airtonians got a hold of an old vessel that they discovered deep underground during a contruction of the foundation for a new city.

The vessel that is going to be presented hovering above the Airtonian city is an effort to reproduce the technology of Divesians. But what they dont know is that an entire Divesian fleet is sitting duck underwater , waiting for the right moment to spoil the party.
