    I think there's a thumbnail limit on this board; so to see my latest stuff, just go to the last page of the thread.

    Hi there CucumberBoy, and welcome to Fan Art! I have to say right off: these are some terrific vehicle designs--the details and perspectives are awesome, as is the originality--I love the contrast between the two starfighters: one on the gangly side, and one bordering sexy, it's so sleek! ;) The alien design is quite unique--lots of different elements there, as well as textures--very cool; and that "spider-type" crawler is drawn so very well (I feel like I should dive into the nearest trench or foxhole, as it's coming right at me! ;) )! Wonderful work (we love the folks who can draw the tech stuff here! :D), and we'll be looking forward to future posts! Again--welcome, and thanks for sharing!

    Welcome to the boards, CucumberBoy.:D Your artwork is really impressive. I admire anyone that can draw...but drawing ships and vehicles...I guess I don't use that creative side of the brain. ;) The second to the top drawing is very reminiscent of the styles we see in the PT to the CT. I love its sleekness and the two side guns. Incorporating those really adds to the detail of this ship being in the SW universe. Looking forward to seeing more from you! @};-

    Ships AND vehicles?
    Very impressive stuff that's VERY hard to draw!

    Thanks for the feedback y'all!

    But what's PT and CT?

    And about this thing you're saying: how vehicles are so hard to draw. Well I get you point - organic things are probably easier - but if you tried designing your own starfighters, droids etc - you probably wouldn't find it all too difficult.

    PT = Prequel Trilogy

    CT = Classic Trilogy

    ;) :D

    Nice ones and what kind of technique are you using?
    I am using old fashioned oil-paint and watercolours

    Well, I use regular paper and any pencil I can find during my design-phase. Then I might clean them up or redo them in painter IX.:D

    EDIT: Painter X!!!

    Wow! CB, I think the contrast between the clear-blue Coruscant sky and the black shadow of the steel grid is amazing. I'm looking for a word to describe the lines, perhaps Art Deco? It's late...for some reason my brain is drawing a blank. [face_thinking] It's a Friday. The brain is toasted. 8-}

    Keep 'em coming! Loving your work. :D

    edit: P.S. - Remember to edit your first post in the subject/title. That way your loyal and eager fans can see when you've update your work.

    Oh, cool! :cool: Most excellent "concept-type" art--the light in particular is wonderfully done: the shadows from the large windows, the difference in those shadows with the angle of the surfaces. Very good! The "traffic" outside and the figures inside are a bit simplified, but I get the impression that this is more about setting up a scene and an atmosphere than about doing a lifelike render. A great piece--you may want to hang on to this one and revisit it again as your skills refine and improve with your program. I could see this becoming a true "concept painting" someday! :)

    Nice to have so many compliments on my first try at a shot design :D
    It's obviously not done yet - it's mostly the details I have to adress.

    EDIT: I've done a few chhanges on the Coruscant piece. Mostly details.

    Allright so I guess this one isn't as much of a design as it is just a regular painting. ;P

    Aaah, but a very cool painting =) And I love your vehicle designs, that sixth one really caught my eye. It's so bizarre in such a great way; I really like it. [face_dancing]

    hello there! And wow! Some amazing vehicle concepts you have here, I really love what you have done with some of these, the angles and slight shading are perfect for the unique style too.
    I also love your silhouette of the jedi on the sunrise/dusty background, abseloutely awesome, looking forward to seeing more :D

    Wonderful update on the Coruscant piece. The details are bringing it together nicely. :)
    I also love your latest update with the Jedi. The red swirling clouds give it a dark and ominous feel. Keep up the great work! :D

    This a collection of really good work. Some of your ship designs even have a Ralph McQuarrie feel to them. Great job!!!

    The rendering of my cargo ship was such a big change so I decided to make a new post for it.

    Wow! I haven't been around much and missed the Jedi painting--it's wonderful! Though, for me, it's more like he's standing on Mustafaar's hellish "shores" here, with the smoky haze all around him (sort of like Obi Wan in the duel with Vader)... Love the way you did the lightsaber, too--it's really the focal point of the piece! The rework of the cargo ship is wonderful: it really reminds me of so many concept drawings and paintings we saw for the development of the SW universe, complete with shading and colors. Very nice!

    Hi CucumberBoy! [:D]
    First, welcome to Fanarts!
    Sorry I didn't welcome you before - I've been on a field trip for a week with my school class.

    The vehicle designs looks wonderful! Very clean and all in all nicely done. Your latest one in color is very cool. :cool:

    And I love the Jedi! I could imagine it being Thrawn, though. Dunno why and it makes no sense.... [face_blush] If he had glowing red eyes as well, I'd have run away at the sight of him with a lightsaber... [face_hypnotized]

    Beautiful painting! [face_love] =D=

    Well done and hope to see more of your work soon! :)

    Thanks for the feedback everybody! This is great.

    I probably won't update for a while becasue

    A: I've got loads of schoolwork.
    B: My latest drawing which was almost done was deleted to oblivion when Windows lagged during saving. It was extremely frustrating :mad:
