I'm a huge fan of spceships and sci fi in general... sadly, drawing such things is beyond my skill...


You're an amazing artist, though!

Not really I guess, the only way to improve faster is to use better study techniques, but generally just spending more time practicing. Of course some people have that "talent" stuff. How old are you?

Still pretty young, maybe a (tiny) bit behind where I was at that point. I'm 23, of course age doesn't matter too much, it's not a race but you can see how you have plenty of time to improve yourself if you wish to make art a career. The key is to realize that if you DO want to make art a career, the faster you improve yourself the better, time wasted is time lost forever. I wish I could go back in time just so I could get into my art sooner.

I love it definitely some design cues from the AH-64, it would fit well in Aliens or Battlestar Galactica

This is awsome, the front and weapons looks like they came from an Apache yet it reminds me of something from Halo and the VTOL from Mechassault 2.

Looks...deadly. Chin gun (looks like a 20mm), missiles and rockets. Wouldn't want to be on the wrong end of this thing.

Nice design! I've been doodling some vtols and they all look rather meh :/ especially with the restrictions I've placed on myself.

Anyways, like I said, looks sweet although the first set of wings in the back seem a bit silly :?

When designing a gunship, looks at the ones that already exist :)

Copying scifi is the bad kind of copying, no one cares if you copy real life, kids these days don't know what real life is so they can't tell.

...right Shimmy ;P

The only real-world example I can think of is an Osprey. Anyways, I just look at a lot of different vehicles, both IRL and sci-fi art, and I have come up with a few serviceable designs. :D

Very nice gunship. But the machine gun is not correctly attached. If you try to look down with the machine gun, you will bump the cockpit.

Very nice work anyway =D
