catchy line: " Yes, it is a multi-purpose nuclear weapon, it doesn't discriminate" :D
did you hand-paint the textures? it looks really good

If you mean the decals, the were sloppily uv mapped(although I made the unit patch on the front, go check it out in my sketchbook towards the end), but the camo on the ship is procedural. :)

khalibloo Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yeah i was referring to the camo... it's amazing
it adds a lot to the alien-ish look

the uneven distribution and precise positioning... it looks too good to be procedural
i think i'll try something like this one of these days. i'm inspired :)

Cool. What do you think of NASA's working concept for solar sails? 
Reply

VickyM72 Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks! I've seen various shows on the subject, and it's quite intriguing to say the least, although I am no theoretical physicist, it appears that is the best option for the time being :D Funny you should ask, I was just watching a show about the technology in Star Trek vs. reality, and the sail ships came up :D

sorry to barge in...
there's something that's been bugging me about the whole solar sail thing... it depends on light to "push" it in the right direction, right? and it's main purpose is inter-stellar travels.
then what happens when it does reach the target planetary system? at that point, our sun (behind the craft) won't be nearly as powerful as the star in the target system (in front of the craft)... won't it slow down to a complete stop?
and what about interference from the billions of light sources in space?

obviously, nasa has thought of it... i've just never seen any documentary that explains that part

Those are interesting considerations. I'd love to see Vicky's artistic rendering of solar sails, after seeing her work "Scouts Out." The way she uses light and shadows in her art is awesome!

So below is what I found in just a few moments of online research. I couldn't explain exactly what it means, because I know little about science, but this might help address how they could control the solar sails' trajectory in space. Indeed I think it would be interesting to learn facts about these solar sails and what they could accomplish, or any new mechanisms for space exploration, rather than just create hype about it. 

"During the flight experiment, researchers will
study the ability of the sail’s beam-tip vanes
to provide attitude stabilization and control;
determine the vehicle’s ability to trim, or set its
sail’s angle relative to the solar wind; and execute
a navigation sequence based on typical mission
requirements."

aaah i forgot where i was for a moment :D it didn't even occur to me that you were discussing art
anyways i did some Sherlock Holmesmyself... and it appears to have even more inherent problems than what i suggested.

so i guess i won't be visiting my home planet anytime soon :cries:

thanks :)

The more I look at this the more I see various influences and similarities to bits of other space and air craft. I think you've managed to blend (no pun intended) them all very nicely into this.

Congrats on the DD
