Wow! I'm blown away by your gallery.  It brings me back to all the Star Wars' ship books I looked at as a kid.  I'm curious, do your drawings come from a specific world with a story joining them all, or they all "snapshot" ideas that are disconnected?

Thanks very much for the comment. Glad you like my stuff. Yes, I have an overarching "universe" within which all the ships exist. It isn't all that developed yet but I am hoping to pull the strands together someday.

Cool!  I'd definitely be interested in reading it if you ever wrote it down.

Magnificent design work. But then, it always is. I've seen your work before but never been fast enough to grab an image off of the image of the day to find out who you were. Inspiring.

I have to say I loved your space ship designs. Do you use photoshop or something else? I really want to learn how to draw and design space ships myself.

Thanks for the comment. No, I don't use Photoshop - I use Copic markers and Pilot pens on plain ol' photocopy paper, scan it into the computer and clean it up a little with a photo editing program (any half decent Photoshop clone program can do it - even the simple free ones). That's it. I guess you could use Painter or Photoshop to do the whole thing, but I like the feeling of drawing on paper - I'm old school, I guess. The important thing is to get the perspective right, go for a distinctive (but not weird) overall hull shape and then detail just enough to make it interesting. Having a back story also helps. Like everything it just takes practice. Good luck it.
