I’ve always been inspired by John Eaves concept art for Star Trek and the first time I saw his hollow saucer concepts I was really intrigued. So, I thought what better test of this artpad I’ve borrowed than to have a go at drawing a ship concept. It’s pretty rough and ready, but it does look like its been drawn on paper I suppose! I was considering painting the ship as an oil painting instead, which you maybe able to tell by the shading.
As for the ship itself, I wanted to go for something in the light-medium cruiser size, I also wanted to break the smooth lines a little bit that a lot of Trek ships have, hence the more heavy detailing around the warp core area. I’m pretty happy with the basic shapes, I’ll probably expand upon and clean up the design at a later date, would love to hear peoples opinions on it.
