Great design It really looks like a BattleStar Galactica style ship. It has the same rough looks. Although it would look more complete with a second set of engines on top of the lower layer of engines. Also some missiles or something on the sides would make them look less bare and maybe some damage like scorch marks would look cooler more used like all of the battlestar Galactica ships. But that is my opinion. The Texture is awesome and really cool looking as well as the shading. The guns look perfectly sized for the ship and the launch tubes give it a good understanding of the size of the ship. It is cool and has great lighting and shading.
What do you think?

nice ship.

the red triangle, is that the viper launch tube?  Looks like it carries at least 4 Vipers

do you have any guns underneath the ship?

Yeah those are the launchers. I didn't think about the underside, but yeah, there would have to be some armament there as well.

Thanks a lot ! Unfortunately, as most of the BSG ships, this one also would probably die quickly in a suicide run :P

Looks great this could easily be a ship that pre-dates the Battlestar class, perhaps a pre-unification design.
Reply
:iconadamkop:
AdamKop Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Yeah it's a rather basic design - no moving parts, one-way landing bay and weapons that only shoot things in front of you :D

The technology of the Visitors from the original series had a very distinctive look. So, yes, it's quite good. :)

BattleStar Galactica :D If you don't know it, check it out - there are two main series - one from 78 and another one from 2003. The new one is easier to get into :)

Oh ok, thanks. I should have figured that out on my own after reading :iconmillenniumfalsehood:'s comment.

Is it a cool show?

:iconadamkop:
AdamKop Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Oh yeah, no sci-fi show has topped it since it aired. It was more like a short movie in each episode - absolutely outstanding production values. There's not that many seasons of it so you should watch all of it. If you're not into that much of watching, just check out the new Blood & Chrome miniseries on youtube. It's really action packed and doesn't require that much of knowledge about BSG universe.

Blood and Chrome is available on Youtube for free. There are 6 episodes out and the final one will be available in 3 days. It's really cool to watch even if you don't know anything about the BSG universe.

Yep. There were some great flashbacks with Adama fighting during the Cylon War, but most of the Battlestars seen were plated versions of Galactica.

Ah yes I recall that one :D Blood & Chrome is better in that department already - there's a small battleship and a different basestar although they all last only one battle :P

Thanks and yeah, I wish there were more battleships in the series. At least the could have Pegasus sticked around for more - it would make for some badass battles if these two went haunting for some Cylon outposts ... but probably very expensive at the same time :D

:iconcolourbrand:
Colourbrand Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think it was expense - but if one is not in it full tilt, one should not do it at all.

Hell B5 did well with its meager budget!!

:iconadamkop:
AdamKop Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Haha yeah, the beginning is such a tease to big battles only to be cut down to one ship :D I guess it was partly a design decision to have one ship taking care of a whole fleet. It made the whole story more tense whenever a Cylon arrived, because almost everyone was at risk.
