    Looks nice...but you might want to rework them a bit to get away from the obvious Macross and other anime linework sources...

    In the first ship at the top one can "see" one of the ships used as arms on the Macross SDF-1...with what sorta looks like wings from the Captain Herlock pirate ship attached to the sides...this gives it a nice sorta "kit bashed" feel...however the details (especialy on that Macross ship portian) are such a close match that it almost looks like the image was photoshoped tegether from the various anime line art...

    The lower ship also seems to borrow from Macross (ARM-01 carrier platforms)...

    I would definetely rework them, especialy the details...

    A way to do this is to darken the background and brighten the linework so the shape of the ships are visable...then use a couple of greyscale shades to define areas of detail (the darker the more "kibble") arranged in such a way to accent the shape of the ship in reguards to it's purpose (a fast ship may have details that accentuate the ship almost like cartoon speed lines...while a workhorse tanker may have detailing that accentuates modular componet sections used in the ships construction for example)

    Then you can go back and do a lineart version of the ships putting more and more panel lines and "kibble" detail in the darker shaded areas...this will give the ship a more harmonius look without drawing unwanted attention to the "kitbashing" approch used in generateing the overall shape.
