    i used to be halfway good with a pen drawing things with shadows with a fair degree of accuracy, but i lost that artistic spark not long after leaving school well over 12 years ago. my art teacher thought i had a lot of ability and talent, she also nutured my interest in space opera stuff like star trek on the other students. part of me loved that bit where star trek music was blaring out.

    now i look at this and i think how fantastic it looks from someone who wishes he has such ability to create something like that. it really is great work from @smokebailey.

    Thanks ~curtsy~
    For some reason, art teachers, as well as English/Literature teachers, HATE science fiction, in any form.

    Thank you for the shout-out! Tamura is indeed beautiful. I mostly grabbed the pic because I needed a good example of the more narrow near-V neck collar rather than the big wide round standy-up thing that's on the uniform in-game. I really want this collar option added to the tailor! But when I was looking for an icon pic I realized this one was gorgeous and appropriate so I used it. :)

    One silly question, if there's no money in the future why is there an ATM attached to that Iconian orb in engineering? :P

    Your welcome, yo! ~curtsy~

    I was waiting for that question. I needed some machiney looking bits to be used for my character's jury rigging of the Iconian Sphere. I just re-textured it, added an isoliner chip and some other bits and bobs to make something up. :)

    I'm a Tamura fan girl myself, and figured, "Maybe she was on the Pioneer as well, since Meres was there....why not?" And IF there's enough interest in a Kelvin comic, Tamura is gonna be one of the regulars. And I've done art of her a few times prior to starting STO back in 2014's summer.

    Was pondering the idea of a totally different ship as well at one point

    I was about to say, that I really like your custom ship, and that it had a kind of Voyager-y feel to it, then I scrolled down, and saw the name on the next photo :D :sunglasses: Awesome work, as always <3 :sunglasses:

    For some reason, art teachers, as well as English/Literature teachers, HATE science fiction, in any form.

    You could probably also add television and movie studios as well as art critics to that list as well. For some reason sci-fi seems to have a really bad reputation with a lot of art community. I wonder if it stems from being non-traditional at its core... most other settings tend to be rooted in the present day or the past in some manner, but sci-fi tends to build new worlds which require a willing suspension of disbelief.

    As for your art, I like that Voyager mod, it really stands out compared to the more traditional designs. I've seen a lot of other fan redesigns to bring 24th century ships in line with TOS or sometimes Kelvin-verse aesthetics, but for some reason everyone always avoids reimaging the Galaxy class. I've always wondered how that type of ship would look if they had tried to build it in the 24th century.

    Out of curiosity, have you ever tried making your characters and backgrounds more stylized? I personally feel that trying to go for realism winds up setting the bar to high for viewer expectations, and winds up leaving the finished product looking dated when compared to professional works. Some people might not like having a more cartoonish look, but I think it tends to age better and helps temper audience expectations.

    Edit: That USS Bushnell design is giving me a Liberator vibe, from Blake's 7, with its design.

    What ya mean by stylized? I mean can ya show an example of it? I might be knowing what ya mean, but a different world or description might be in my head, though.

    A Kelvin Galaxy would probably be the size of the Enterprise J, and I don't know if the whole JJ vibe would allow the exploratory elements of TNG....but who knows.

    I always try to go cartoony as much as I can. You'll see anime elements, like the sweatdrops, or giant hammers, and expressions, etc. :) Like this one describing my PVP career in game XD 9RJ2heX.jpg

    Or my Trek take on the Red Dwarf crew

    By stylized I was just going for a polite way of saying like a cartoon (since some people look down on that format). Kind of what Pixar or DreamWorks do with their cg movies. Its mostly in the facial proportions, typically the larger than normal eyes that cartoons tend to use. But don't feel that you have to change anything on my account, I'm just tossing out ideas from the peanut gallery.


    *sees the Saladin class in the background of one of the pictures* Hm... that deflector dish hanging down like that has always bugged me... Perhaps that type of ship would look better if it had an NX style rectangular dish on the leading edge of the nacelle pylon.

    Are all your girls so thin? It makes me want to introduce them to gumbo and shrimp'n'grits. I know preferences vary, and the artist has the final say, but some guys like Butter.

    I eagerly await their next mission, perhaps to the Cajun planet where everyone is a gourmet chef and master fisherman.

    Watch anime, you'll see. Aiko3 and Hiro3 are, by default, slim figures, as anime people normally are. And some clothing bits for them can be adjusted, some can not, so I sorta cookie cutter the bodies for the most part, it's just easier on me overall.

    Plus I'm a thin gal myself. ~shrugs~

    There's Cajun planets in Trek? o.O

    But, seriously, folks, if I do a Kelvin comic, which ship ya think would be best?

    So far, the Connie is the candidate, but feedbacks, opinions and ideas always welcome.
    Madman made some nice Kelvin scouts, destroyers and an Excelsior, but none in poser format as of yet. u.u

    I have to say that I've always had a thing for the FASA single nacelle designs and the Saladin/Hermes. I know it violates Roddenberry's 'nacelles come in pairs only' rule, but why make a rule if nobody's breaking it?

    Of the available choices, #4 just looks faster and more predatory. It looks like a panther in a room full of cats and dogs. I like it as first choice.

    #3 is, for me, the least interesting. I never cared for the Miranda/Reliant look, though I realize others are passionate for the design.

    The others are just Connies, and when it comes to Connies I prefer 1701 with no bloody A, B, or D.

    I pulled a re-start yesterday for the lulz, and came up with a rather nice starter ship using the Miranda struts, Saratoga pylons, and Centaur saucer and nacelles. The nacelles look a little too long, but for the most part, I think it looks quite nice, and, if the Miranda looks like it's made from Connie parts, this looks like it's been made with Excelsior parts :sunglasses:

    I would post a pic, but photobucket seems to have issues and a silly idea about account upgrades... ;)

    Looks good.

    One of my Kelvin models I got is like that, but 3 engine pods.

    Anyhow, the comic pages are coming along alright, spent yesterday rendering a pile of images for the space shots, now I can focus on the interior shots. :)

    It looks great ^_^ I liked the ones in Axanar and 09 which had two nacelles at the top, and two hulls at the bottom :sunglasses: Made me think of aircraft carriers in terms of role :sunglasses:

    Awesome :sunglasses: I think the thing which makes me think of it as possibly being a carrier, is not only the second hull, but that it only has half a saucer section, suggesting that the other hulls, are the focus of its function :sunglasses:
