Ship Speed Paint by Shimmering-Sword Ship Speed Paint by Shimmering-Sword
A quick piece to mess around with one night. Working on ship design is pretty laid back for me, though maybe that leads to some bland design.

As I checked to make sure I got my port/starboard right I learned that I put the bridge on the non standard side, oh well :D
The majority of the ships weapons are mounted on the bow including massive spinal rail guns. Central areas hold military crew and any forces to be launched, from fighters and bombers to ground forces. Engines stern of course.

Just I quick tip I picked up from History Channel: "starboard" is the right side because it is derived from steer/ing board, which was on the right of all old cogs. Because the rudder was on the right, that meant ships could only dock on the left side - hence port side.

I always keep them straight by thinking port and left both have 4 letters and end in T

Every once and a while I do them, definitely more in the future. They're just secondary to my other work, so it's rare.

Amazing job on this and very badass =) Epic and love how it has similar structure to a modern day aircraft carrier but at the same time a huge futuristic look to it =D
