So, in a general attempt to better myself and my work and build a portfolio, I've followed a suggestion by Jason Manley in the portfolio review thread to 'build a world' in your portfolio, to give it focus and structure.
So, I set a stage for my designs in which the British Empire has reached far into space. Yes, it's been done before, but it gives me an outlet for my patriotism!
I'm beginning with industrial design, as it's where I am weakest. I'm kicking off with ships - naming each after a common British bird and trying to through in some WW2 influences.
I'll update more as I go, but I've got to get started somewhere.
Let me know what you think!
The thuimbnails for the Recon ship. The first page are really bad, but are where I got the idea to make each ship distinct by patterning my ideas (if not actual designs) after common British birds.
