I like this ship for many reasons. the long rounded tube like fighter like cockpit with the wings as almost blinders like or protectors. the round break in the wing is a nice touch, it gives the feel like the enigne is bigger then it could be fit into such a small ship. or two engines for 1 exhaust. the best part is something I try in my own work the panneling is only raised just a hair. its enough to show that its not just a covering but maybe an armor plate or access port for the internals. one of the best part you have to look at a second glance is there is a ring around the tube that makes this ship look like the main body can spin while the main tube "body" stays put during a fight or fancy flight. and the best part is that this was just thrown together without much thought. that is the sign of a good ship designer.
What do you think?

What is, if it has any to begin with, its armament?

Good question, I didn't think about any weapons for that :) I guess it would have a pair of cannons on the underside, one for front and one for rear. Other than that probably some small retractable turrets to defend against fighters.

Maybe a followup image is needed, on if the dropship on a planets surface with its weapons deployed but showing battle damage

Well if I did that, I would probably change it into a 3D model, since this one is pretty bare-bones for my standards now.

Oh....last question...does it have a name (for the ship, or for the class)?

No problem :) I don't have a name for my Imperial ships, I actually never looked into their naming origins.

Awesome. Thanks for the reply!


Looks absolutely appropriate for an Imperial Inquisitor and a squad of stormtroopers.

What are the big cylinders near the rear? Engine housings? Unfolding entry points? Hidden gun emplacements?

AdamKop Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Well it's a smaller dropship, mainly designed for aiding stormtrooper forces. It can carry some soldiers in the main hull and the cylinders on the sides are used for ammo storage for cannons/walkers.

It certainly looks Imperial, though not necessarily like a dropship. To me, it looks more like an armed and armored courier, or the personal ship of a VIP.

Have you done an interior layout/deckplan for it?

No, I didn't plan to do any of that yet. If I do some kind of blueprint for it, I would have to do a full 3D mesh first.

If Starwars was a long running TV series, they could have the opportunity to show off many unique designs.

Never saw a Tie interceptor in the movie., it was a shame that many SW concepts stayed on paper. Star Trek had the chance to explore many different design concepts in the long running series.

Actually interceptor made it to the battle of Endor :D (I think it was there in every version of the movie release). As for the trek, it indeed was in better position but all the budget cuts forced a lot of models to be reused. If the Clone Wars are any indication, we can expect a lot of new stuff in the live action series.

I haven't watched SW for so long, may be I forgot. Trek was never a high budget production to begin with, but it was clever on management, a lot of effect where "cheap" but still worked well to build a sci-fi atmosphere. I think the reason to reuse old models is to make the show look "familiar" not that model cost too much to produce.

Well, sometimes it was true with similarities, but mostly the kitbashes were done to save money. During TNG days they used paint markers to do nacelles and other household items to make the ships. Voyager's CGI was also expensive so they kitbashed the models they modeled :D

I think Trek does not require ultra expressive CGIs, it can be as good even with cheap effects.

A little too "cool" for a drop ship :D

Yeah, but the directors were pretty harsh with new graphics - they threw out most of the proposed stuff ...

what a relief, if there's one person you don't wanna..,o well you get the picture. really is a good one man. why no fancy textures and all? keeping it simple on purpose? i'd kinda like to see it all weathered up and battle scared.

That's what my rebel ships are for - I keep the Imperials texture-less and glossy to make them more stylish. I might work some more on details and stuff when I get around to making a 3D model.

No problem :) If my files are stored under "drawings" then it means that it is a 2D drawing. I'm aiming for creating illusions of 3D models so I'm actually happy that you thought it's a polygonal mesh :D

While its a neat shape and all, it doesn't look very, well, 'dropshippy'. Just based on observation of exterior lines, your internal volume is going to waste in all sorts of inefficient arrangements. Basically the way it is laid out and its role are in conflict with one another, IMO.

SSome intresting ideas on this one, a little out of the ordinary. I dont see why you would want windows that only look out on the inside of the wing, bur overall quite a novel design.
