Spaceship concepts

Well it’s been a few days since my exams finished, and despite a hectic new lifestyle of sunbathing on the beach, I’ve had time for some drawing. I came to it a bit scared – you can see my progress from never having designed a spaceship up to having drawn 80 or so ships. Drawing and design has never been my strong point though, from perspective/ drawing a straight line, up to anything more advanced!

There are a couple of stations and things in there as well. I found it tricky to think of novel designs, and I’m sure some of these will seem derivative from films, games etc. I initially thought I’d do about 10, so I surprised myself with how many unique concepts I could come up with. I will probably need to visually unify the various ship factions, such as giving the enemies a distinct style so as to be easily recognisable, so more design may be inevitable.

I’ve started modelling a few of them in 3dsmax for importing into the game engine, so expect an update with renders soon! I’d love to know which ships you think are the better ones.
