Battletech - Caerleon Transport by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - Caerleon Transport by Shimmering-Sword
Here's the 4th piece I designed for the 3145 Marik TRO. One of the less exciting of my batch, I still enjoyed coming up with something akin to combining a hercules transport with a space shuttle (now with guns!) :)

The 195 ton Caerleon Assault Craft is designed to ferry Battle Armor to and from the battlefield, but unlike it's more vulnerable cousins that must stay out of the fight, the Caerleon is suited for going in hot. It is unstable in atmospheric flight however, so requires skilled piloting.
2 Light Gauss Rifles
2 Long Range Missile 15s with Artemis IV
20 tons of Battle Armor capacity

No modeling involved. I drew and inked this one in Photoshop.

how did you get your line art to be so clean?

Straight lines are done with a brush trick that places lines between where I dot my pen (just holding shift key). Curved lines are carefully freehanded. Also just as much as I place lined down, I cut into them with a white brush to alter their thickness and shapes.
