    Man, what's with all the space ships designs as of late...

    To summarize the summary of the summary : people are the problem.

    Perhaps, my comment should be for another thread, so I'll understand if it's removed. Anyhow, I have to agree with MIKECORRIERO, there needs to be more variety. And, I'm not talking about more variety in sci-fi or fantasy. I know this site is heavily geared towards those genres, but it would be beneficial to have more themes that are historical based. For instance, pirates, cowboys, czars, etc. (not: space pirates, space cowboys...) Or, have themes that excercise particular techniques and methods. For example themes that require 3 point perspective, specific palettes (monotone, analogous, complimentary, etc.), tonalaties (high-key, middle-key, low-key)..the list goes on.


    just my 2 cents.

    I'd like to see themes and methods combined, like cowboys in monotone, or what not. I agree that it feels like a lot of times the topic is either too open ended or too cliche.

    Another cent added to Danielh68's.

    Nice scrubbin but theres a minute detail that might cause a problem. Because its in space, a vacuum type device wouldnt work (how do you suck in nothing?).
    So i guess the ship just has to ram the debris
    Either that or you could say it has a gravity drive which simulates gravity to pull trash in. Oh the simplicity of fiction

    Okay, am I the only one reminded of that really cheesy old science fiction show "Quark"? With the space garbage scow that went around "eating" things?

    -Edited-
    Finished the color version, replaced the black and white with it. All told, this was about two hours from concept to what you see here.

    Based it on a more bio-technological idea... sort of a cross between a Farscape Leviathan and a Baleen Whale. I figure if the ship is going to be gathering up junk and garbage, it might as well just eat the stuff and use it as some form of raw material or what-have-you if at all possible, right?

    unfortunatley the trash men of the future also work for the government as they are trained to be spies and do the 'dirty work'.
    And these aren't space trash men, they are space waste consultants, they pick the trash up, where it is dropped into the incinerator and expelled as tiny space particals.

    Yiako, digin' the expressions.

    Whisping leaves break the air as lost souls sleep unaware. Colors and sounds thrive and sway under a blind cover of mud and clay

    Π...I must hurry back to the comic store, where I dispense the insults, rather than absorb them.

    Space-Hauler

    I've been absent far too long!

    Yiako - That's just CLASSIC. That kills me.

    scrubbin' bubbles - I dig that design and explanation!

    ayato - good one! Love the reflections on the inside of the wastebin.

    As usual, this forum gets me doin' things that I don't usually do... thinkin' ways I don't usually think.... forces me to try stuff I normally shy away from.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    About Topics:
    I'm happy as a clam that there's been a glut of spaceship themes lately. I've always loved spaceships, but somewhere along the way I stopped trying to draw them and my conceptualizations slowly stagnated.
    I also figure the reason there've been so many spaceship designs is just by chance. Of course, the topics are coming directly from we - the people, So we - the people should be sure that the DSG always has a steady supply of interesting topics by submitting them.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I'm trying to start using perspective (which is real shaky), trying to work on the high-contrast thing, and also workin' toward that loose-and-fast technique that so many people seem to be master of. You know.. that Craig Mullins-y stuff. I don't understand what he's doing, but I wanna learn.

    Here's mine. It's loose, but it took me a million years.
    (Sorry it's so big, but when I shrunk it down it got worse looking.)

    Grimlohk - Yeah a wide seeping low amplitude gravity/tractor/magneto beam field thingee was the tech i was thinkin of. a magnet would work for metal junk but i'm sure there would be alot of plastic and ceramic bits also, so gravity sucking type action could work(in theory). Oh and inertia keeps all the loose bits compacted at the back of the "bag"

    Hand_- thanks. Yours is incredible...again. Sheesh don't you have off days? Really though I like the stark contrast. it helps create a spacey feel. Looks like a production still from some late 70s/ early 80s sci fi flick. Like the big giganto ship from spaceballs. heh, i just noticed the Hazard slow moving vehicle signs.

    I love the contrast in the Hand's one too. Reminded me of the opening of the original Star Wars right away. Really cool.
