Battletech - Gorgon Carrier by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - Gorgon Carrier by Shimmering-Sword
The 6th, final, and biggest unit I designed for TRO3145 Marik (though the mechs were more time consuming). I don't think this is a very pretty ship, but it's grown on me.

Coming in at 6,800 tons, the Gorgon Carrier is designed as an interdictor. Meeting an invasion force as they burn in towards a planet, it can launch up to 18 aerospace fighters and bring heavy forward weapons to bear. With several ventral access hatches (normally used for loading cargo), it can also be rigged to drop ordinance as a massive space bomber.

  I see is cargo drop as a resupply vessel for guerrilla warfare ops.

This is very good! So good I wanna draw these kind of ships for my games. I wonder if I contact you so I can learn how to draw ships like this... I can only make Top views

To learn to draw in perspective you simply "do it". If all you draw are top views you will never learn to do anything else. All you need to do is change :)

And Cleric wasn't critiquing my work, just making a joke about me being too good.

....I've noticed that you tend to lean towards making some of these a little too awesome. Don't get me wrong, making up awesome mechs and ships is cool, but they need balance.

Yep, working on the space stuff was fun, and a lot easier than the mechs,
